Between Port McNeill and Port Hardy there are areas along the highway where every spring the black bears come to graze on a variety fresh grasses and other juicy greens. You are almost guaranteed to see at least one bear as you drive the 45 kilometers between the two communities.
I photographed this one (from the safety of my car) on my way back from Port Hardy this evening.
Do you know a better way to describe waiting for a BC Ferry?
Last Friday my husband and I travelled to Vancouver for some personal appointments. We planned on returning to Vancouver Island on the 5:00 pm ferry, however that wasn’t to be.
Disappointment quickly changed to pleasure. Now I had the opportunity to capture some of the activity on a sunny afternoon in Horseshoe Bay.
I can hear them; little green harbingers of spring! To me, a chorus of frogs croaking is one of the happiest sounds of spring.
I saw this little cutie a few years ago sunning itself on a big hosta leaf by my fish pond.
Who could say no to such a cute face?
I had fun and so did he!
My husband and I are usually in a hurry to get home after a weekend away, and therfore we usually drive theVancouver Island inland highway; a faster yet boring route. However, it was a nice day so we decided to take the slower yet more scenic route along the water.
As we were passing through Fanny Bay, we could see the Stellar sea lions had hauled themselves out of the water and onto some log booms and floats in the bay.
These two were having what seemed to be a lover’s quarrel; lots of barking and snarling. However, it appeared to be over as quickly as it started. Isn’t it amazing what one kiss will do?
Usually I see swans, Canada geese and a variety of ducks. however, on this trip I saw this deer paddling down the river.
