HARBOUR SNOW

20161205-img_6271

A Arctic cold snap has descended upon us.Bringing cold temperatures……or at least cold for this area. I went down to Tranquil today.Didn’t see “Lippy” on Rankin rocks as I passed by.In fact,I didn’t see anybody around what so ever.No Seals,no Sea Lions. I bet the bait fish have left the inlet? If the food leaves,so do the predators.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Tranquil Trumpeters have arrived however! They weren’t there yesterday,so am assuming they arrived today?

Took a few scenery shots of Tranquil & left.With the sun setting so early I really do not get to look around as much. On my way back I knew I wouldn’t be able to make it back to the harbour for sunset.A offshore cloud bank snuffed the sun even quicker. So I went to Tsapee Narrows to visit with the Daredevil.Haven’t done that in what seems like years! I liked the cloud structure in the background. Took a few shots of my feathered friend & continued on to the harbour.By this time the light was totally gone,so I decided to come back in.Didn’t get much today but it sure was great getting out!

  1. Definitely been a cold snap in these parts! I think that the seals and sea lions only come out on land when the sun is out, then get back in the water. The water is actually slightly warmer than the air during days like this, surprisingly enough…well, ‘warm’ being relative, LOL

    All that fur and blubber on the pinnipeds helps them stay warmer underwater, so swimming keeps their blood pumping.
