ROMEO & CATS FACE

That mountain range in the background is called “Cats Face”. I think it got the name from a mineral deposit on the west side.When the sun sets the light reflects off of these very shiny deposits like cats eyes.

COMING BACK IN

20130615-IMG_570020130615-HARBOUR PANO,JUNE 15TH,2013Went up into Gunner looking for my furry friends but no one was home! I wasn’t shocked because it was high tide & the shoreline was narrow.
I did go pick that helmet up & found a full beer amongst the rest of the shore debris!
Always surprised what I sometimes find along the shorelines!
Started to go over into Fortune Channel but my motor was acting up again! I think it’s water in the fuel! After a few minutes it was fine but I decided to call it quits to be on the safe side & headed back into town!
So I never went over into Fortune & as a result ………didn’t get any bears tonight!
By the time I got into the harbour,I was feeling better about the engine & went to visit with Romeo & Juliette. Romeo saw me at a distance & came out to greet me! He does this from time to time to bring me back to his home. It always makes me smile! He’s such a character!
My motor acted up & so did Mother Nature! She called in the clouds & the light went south! Just as well I didn’t go looking for bears anyways in such poor light!
Some nights are better than others & tonight was mediocre at best,but I just roll with it!

SMOLT RUN

20130223-IMG_5940This is a Smolt barge heading out to one of Mainstream’s fish farms.Those white tanks contain thousands of tiny Atlantic salmon. This boat (The Go-Getter) will tow this barge out to a farm & the fish will than be emptied into a empty net pen.I forget how long they take to come to production size,but it is quicker than Chinook.

WINTER IS CLOSE!

The weather has been poor to bad lately,so when I saw a semi good clearing coming,I made a dash for the boat!That clearing did close up on me after I got out but not enough to snuff all the good light.
Because of getting out later than normal,I was forced to stay in the harbour area. Tomorrow looks better for getting down to visit with the Lions!
I did come across that Brown Pelican as well. I found it was injured! It somehow got a cut along the back of it’s head? Rod Palm is going to try & capture? It needs to go to a Vets to get stitched up! I’m going to try to go along to record the event.
Fingers crossed for our feathered friend & the weather to clear!!
