Welcome to the Beach Party.

Come on guys the beach is empty. the tourists have all gone and the Canadian Geese have moved so there’s no goose droppings. Messy creatures.

That water looks good but it sure is cold on the "bum",  we can sit on the warm sand.

An Unexpected Landing

Note And Photo From:- Kelowna Trout Angler, Canada.

Carp fishing in the Okanagan.

The lilies in the background had been a magnet for the Carp and I had taken full advantage of the opportunity. Sitting on the shingle had been a pleasure as the evening sun went down.

Each tree had been used as a vantage point for an Osprey as it systematically checked every spot for an easy meal. Coots and various ducks had fought their  way across the weed beds in attempts to gain the best places to rest up and sample the free offerings from the weed.

A Coyote could be seen up in the vineyards and occasionally a Muskrat would raise it’s head to surprise the ducks.

But the surprised widlife was nothing compared to mine, when in the early morning I returned to find this strange bird of prey sitting in the very swim I had vacated only a few hours earlier.

It seems the propeller had snapped and the plane came down. Everyone was ok.

Sooke, Vancouver Island, BC

Sooke, Vancouver Island, BC (Photograph and Article submitted by Audrey, BC)

We stood on the Spit at the entrance to Sooke Harbour on a very warm & hazy afternoon, watching a man fishing for salmon. He stood on the beach casting into the narrow entrance to the harbour, a thing he did frequently when the time was right.
