The eastern coastline of the Saanich Peninsula faces the Strait of Georgia. The peninsula's western shore faces Saanich Inlet, a long arm of the ocean that cuts into southern Vancouver Island. The southernmost portion of that arm is Finlayson Arm. The above photo of Finlayson Arm was taken from Gowlland Tod Provincial Park, looking north towards the opening of the Saanich Inlet. That white structure visible on the far left is some of what remains of the industrial town of Bamberton.
