The Tales and the Whales

We have yet to see a bear this year and have not sighted a single orca but we have seen whales and whales and hummingbirds and beautiful vistas.  Enjoy with us:
Such impressive animals.  Any idea what is on the tip of the nearest fluke?
Never expected to find hummingbirds in remote anchorages.

A sunset to remember
Jan knits for Nancy
The trolls of Grenville Channel
Prince Rupert on a foggy night
At slack this waterfall is flat for about 8 minutes.  We traversed it in the small boat and explored the inlet quickly.

Friends, Food and Foraging in Beautiful British Columbia

My friend, Nicky explained to me that there are two kind of people in the world:  Those who eat to live and those who live to eat.  I have concluded that we are our guests tend to fit into the second category and manage to do so in beautiful places.

No Fishes Just Riches

We are blessed to be heading north in the boat after a wonderful season of friends and family.  As we are passing Hat Island and Camano Head I think back to the memories of my childhood.  This To-Mexico-And-Back yyear was a medley of old friends, new friends, babies, children and family our greatest riches.
