Yearn to Wander
Bald Eagle Bonanza
The strength, power and beauty of the Bald Eagle make it a spectacular bird. Finally, I've been able to catch their white heads and tails in some pictures.
They've been easier to spot because their hungry, since the autumn Chum Salmon run was poor. Plus, breeding season is around the corner, so they're seen together more often.
Neck Point Park in Nanaimo
Today we went farther afield and found Neck Point Park, a lovely community park on a little peninsula jutting into the Salish Sea. There we enjoyed a hike, or stroll, up and down hills, along the sea and through the towering forest. We caught dusk at Rathtrevor to check out the setting sun.
More Parksville Wanderings
Here are some scenes during high tide at Rathtrevor Provincial Park -- hard to keep up when sea lions are barking from one direction and a Bald Eagle is crying from another -- Englishman River Estuary, and French Creek Harbour at dusk.
The Ever Changing Sea
Like the lake at home, the Strait of Georgia, an arm of the Pacific Ocean, is ever changing and even more tantalizing. Varieties of shellfish, seaweed, and birds with daily tides rising and falling always add to the interest, joy, and peace of watching the sea.
