rhapsody in blue

These pilings are the remnants of a pier from a former fish reduction plant that burned down in 1959. You can still see charred areas on the wood.

Parks Canada recently purchased the land the plant was located on, adding it to the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. The tree pictures in my previous post were also taken in this park, just a little ways down the beach.

blue to gold

Yesterday evening, I checked the clouds and thought they held the potential for a good sunset, so the pup and I headed out to the marina. If nothing else, it was a nice night for a walk.

It was windy and the docks were rolling and creaking. Pup did not like this at all.

The boats were rocking, setting off all their bells. It was a seaside symphony.

At pup’s insistence, we left the dodgy docks for the safety of solid land.

The wind was strong out on the breakwater, creating lots of exciting waves and spray.

Just as we were ready to leave for home, we were rewarded. The sky blossomed pink and gold.
