Mini-vacation coming up!

It's been a stay-at-home summer for us, so far. We've been busy with gardening and family events; our two weeks on Vancouver Island kept being put off, and here we are, in mid-August, with September rains on the horizon. We've decided to reduce the two weeks to three days, and cut the distance in half; we'll dawdle up the Sunshine Coast, antiquing and sight-seeing, spend a couple of nights in Powell River, and wander on home again.

In Powell River, waiting for the ferry last year, we discovered a treasure trove on the underside of the wharf, but had to dash off to board the boat. Weather permitting, that's where you'll find us next Wednesday; half standing on our heads on the Powell River wharf.

Large anemones. They came in several colours.

Kelp (Tanner's?) crab. We saw several, all large.

There were several kinds of jellyfish, too. And fish. And, of course, the blue, blue water and bright boat reflections.

I am really looking forward to this!


  1. wow, from the thumbnail I had NO idea what that 1st picture was, but LOVED the colors and shapes. Then when I saw it was anemone, my delight deepened. Great shot! Love kelp crabs. Hope you have fun. =)

  2. I can't wait to see your pictures when you get back. Have a great time!

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!
