More Spring Floral

Crocuses. They've been out here for weeks, but I finally found a clump that was photogenic.

A New Addition ...

... to our waterfront. This was done by Nanaimo carver Dan Richie for the 2016
Logger Sports, so the city's had our Blackbeard tucked away somewhere
for some time.

Always nice to run into one of the locals when you're out and about.

A pair of male Barrow's Goldeneye ducks on the local waterfront. With not getting out much recently I haven't
taken my usual many winter duck photos, and these are the first of the year.

Winter Sport

Yesterday morning, while cool, was still a very nice day for some fly fishing on Cranberry Lake.

Though unfortunately it didn't appear that the trout were rising to the fly.

Proudly Made In Canada

A de Havilland Twin Otter, the 400 Series built by Viking Air at their facility near the Victoria Airport.
This is #100, built in 2016 - they have long passed that with around 125 of these planes now built.

They flew into the local airport yesterday, did 4 "touch and go" loops, landing for a brief 15 minutes before
taking a very scenic indirect route to Campbell River.

(A note: this is my first post in quite some time, as I've been dealing with some health issues, tendonitis
in the thumb being one, which means very, very little computer time. Unfortunately not done yet, so don't
expect a continuation in the short term. Apologies to those who have tried to contact me, with no reply.)
