Summery interlude

It rained last week, and it's raining again now. The weather people say it's going to get even wetter for the rest of the week. Normal Lower Mainland winter weather, in other words.

But just for Saturday, the weather gods relented and gave us a glorious sunny day. I crossed to Victoria and came back at night under clear skies. It started to rain as I hiked across the terminal parking lot to find my car, back in Tsawwassen.

I even found a few clean spots on the ferry windows:

Halfway across the Strait of Georgia, dodging islands. I grew up with a view like this just outside my bedroom window, a ways further north. I miss it.

A mini-island, or spit, depending on the tide. Mostly rock and hardy, scratchy trees.

Zooming in on that islet. The thick Pexiglass windows of the ferry serve as a filter, making this seem more like a painting than a photo.

Just outside the Schwartz Bay terminal, on Vancouver Island.

A Skywatch post.


  1. Beautiful photos. They make me miss the great pacific northwest.

  2. Looks like summer for sure. I hear there is a big rain warning coming. We are in Los Angeles so we'll miss it. Fortunately, they will get some rain on Sunday and Monday. It is SO dry down here. - Margy

  3. I would so love to have that view of the water!!!

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!
