CCGS Cape Caution

Our local SAR boat, the Cape Caution. She was away for a couple of months, an extensive
refit at the Coast Guard facility at Pat Bay, and has only been back a week or so. She is a pretty sight on the water.
That's the low tide version of Rebecca Rock in the hazy background.

Blushing Beauty

Rhododendrons are my favourite blooms, so you'll see more of them in the weeks coming.

Eagle Dinner

At the north end of the North Harbour Sunday afternoon when I spotted an eagle leave its tree and head out
over the water. It came back with what looks to be a young otter, and perched on the sign at the entrance
to the harbour, where it proceeded to tear off fur and take a few mouthfuls.

It didn't perch long, and soon lifted off with its catch and headed to the trees further up-shore.

Technically, not the best photos I've ever taken, but interesting to see and document.

Bad Hair Day

Mine looks the same some mornings.

Sunshine ...

... brings out the kayakers. And a splash of colour on the water.

It is definitely spring - someone doesn't need his toque anymore.
