The Once Famous Squirrel Cove Bakery
27 November 2011 | Cortes Isl.
Squirrel Cove is a great sheltered harbour. Once you pass through the 60' wide entrance, the cove opens up to easily hold over a hundred anchored boats. We used to anchor and tie back over where the lagoon empties into the cove whenever the tide drops. Our kids enjoyed riding floaties down in the current. The condition of the bakery building was a suprise to see. We had heard that about 6 years ago, the baker had retired and no one had taked it over. His cinnamon buns were awsome! The baker lived in the house and had 3 propane stoves in his kitchen. The house was on floats but permantly beached. We bake our own now on cool days and the boat smells great!
