Whale Watching
I am incredibly exhausted from a very full weekend, and will not be able to post much tonight, except to say this weekend will long live in my memory as a fantastic one.

There is nothing I enjoy more than getting out on the open water and feeling the wind in my face as we fly over the waves. Whale watching is by far one of my favourite things to do, and every time I do it, I wonder why I don't more often. The dock is about a 10 minute walk from my house, and each time I am in awe of the beauty of my surroundings.

Here's a few pics from yesterday's adventure:

Who you lookin' at?

This was about 30 feet from the end of the boat. The whales were putting on a great show as two pods had come together - a rare event. So apparently it was like a little Orca Nightclub below the boat and there was a lot of showing off. Definitely impressed us!

There's a bald eagle nesting area just at the mouth of the river. We saw so many eagles, it was hard to even count. There is nothing more majestic than seeing an eagle take off in flight.

I am always amazed by the natural beauty of my local area. I have travelled all over the world, and this is still my favourite place on earth.

More when I recover enough to make sense...

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
