Lost Roots

Vote for Pedro
Vote for Pedro

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!!

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.

Not often you get to see giraffes when you’re out for a seaside stroll. This is one of a pair staring out to sea across the mud flats. Obviously someone has too much time on their hands or is in the first stages of an art career or simply  is trying to get rid of the last can of living room paint. Hard to pass by without grabbing a photo.

Everywhere I go there seem to be more and more seagulls despite reports of precipitous seabird population declines. Around White Rock these days, there are colonies of clamorous gulls up before the dawn and they are stilling vociferously screeching even after dark.

Poor starfish. As if they don’t have enough problems escaping predators: sea otters, crabs, gulls, fish and other cannibalistic starfish species; now they are subject to ‘Sea Star Wasting Syndrome’ killing them off up and down the Pacific coast. Noticed their almost total disappearance from one of the marine parks in the Lower Mainland a couple of months ago. Over at Tofino on Vancouver Island, however, they appear bright and healthy.
