    This is the west end of Nimpkish Lake, Northern Vancouver Island. I have seen aerial photographs of this lake taken in the 1950's. There were bag booms of logs tied up to every shoreline around the lake.

    The pilings that you see on the far shoreline, is where the logs were de-watered onto a steam train and taken to tide water. This setup was last used in 1958.

    Plenty of beach wood driven high and dry by the winter storms.

    Does not take much wood to toast wieners. Self.

    Great photos, looks like a great time, too! Nothing like beach-side chow, looks like you had the 'restaurant' all to yourself (well, you and the pups).

    thanks for sharing!

    They really don't care what you call them as long as there is a piece of wiener to eat or the odd marshmallow.

    It was obviously a poor attempt at humor, making it seem like you were cooking a dog.
