Since I didn’t run into any black and white birds in the last few days, I had to rethink what to post. At some point when White Rock built new sidewalks along Marine Drive connecting east and west beaches, someone from the city decided to stamp an eagle or fish in the newly poured cement every twenty feet or so. They really don’t show up that well and are easy to miss. I wonder why anybody would walk along here staring at their feet when Semiahmoo Bay is meters away. Besides which there are probably three nesting pairs of bald eagles along the western shoreline and can usually be seen everyday soaring or fishing. Look up and enjoy the aerial display!
Fresh out of the camera. Decided to head down to the beach before the crowds of tourists and snapped this shot of a BNSF freight heading south from Vancouver likely on its way to Seattle. Must be Black and White Thursday.
Given time the ocean will put a twist into the straightest material.
Down for walks along West Beach in White Rock especially in the winter when there are no crowds. A place to enjoy the outdoors in peace. Mount Baker looming in the background.
It wouldn’t be a tour guide without a photo of the pier at White Rock.
One of many weathered logs scattered on shore at Crescent Beach. Judging by the bored hole, it could have been part of an timber raft or a dock before a storm sent it here. Concentrates one’s view of the rocky beach.
For some reason, person or persons unknown used a beached tree root for a collage of numbers which may have a significant meaning, although not to me. But Pedro does have my vote!!
Despite the residential area only a few hundred metres away, solitude can be found on a lonely spit and with a bright jacket, you can stand out in a crowd even when no one is around.
Sometimes it’s more interesting to see what is left behind after the H2O has gone.
When I took this photo I was interested in Burrard Inlet with Crown Mountain looming in the distance and gave little interest to the ships moored in the outer harbour. Only later did I realize I had lost half of this freighter as it sailed away west to the Pacific and ports unknown.
