Strathcona in Snow
I was surprised to see that the Frontal system that threatened us with rain, went past us further off shore! That meant it was going to stay sunny! I think the rest of the week will be wet,so I took advantage of the great light! It was a cold trip today! I had my winter gloves on. I do not have a windscreen on my boat and am exposed to the wind/cold!
I loaded up on the fuel and headed east down Tofino Inlet to Tranquil Inlet. I wanted to see if I could find any bears?
The tide was just right. It was very close to being high and it allowed me to enter into the river system easily! It didn’t take long for me to realize that the party was over!
I couldn’t find any salmon swimming around at ALL! The dance is over for another year I guess!
I did see one bear however, but it was at a distance and heading up river away from me.
I couldn’t see many fish carcass’s on the rivers bottom either! The heavy rains had flushed the entire system!
After my little disappointment,I headed over to Cannery Bay to see if the Sea Lions had moved back in…………..& no they haven’t yet.
I don’t think I even saw one swimming around!
I headed back into town. I noticed that a large cloud layer was moving in from the west and I knew what that meant! Bye bye to my great light!
I went to visit Romeo and Juliette for awhile at Deadman Island. Only silhouettes tonight of my finely feathered friends.
Another great afternoon’s shoot under my belt!
