Six red wings over Iona

Kite, Iona Beach Regional Park:

The Red Baron flies again!

And I'm babysitting in a few hours, so that's it for tonight.

Coming up in the next few days: mating bugs, a challenging hike, Devil's club, and Iona's dunes, with birds. But first, I've got to get some sleep. G'night!



  1. Found one of your old posts about sea asparagus, aka salicornia. Great info, thanks. I'm going to go on a hunt for it, any suggestions on the best access point? Boundary Bay park would seem to be the best bet.

  2. Bob,
    From Boundary Bay park at the tiny parking lot at the north end (the end of 12th Ave, follow the trail and cut across to the dunes. On the shore end of this trail, you should find some.

    We also found it closer to you, on the Semiahmoo shore; park in the first (coming from the east) parking lot after the footbridge into the reserve, on Marine Drive, then follow the dyke inland to the railway bridge. Cross the bridge. Below you, on the edges of the dredged canal, there are young saltwort plants.

    Hope that helps.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
