Out for a little drive

August 29, 2017 - This past Sunday we decided that we’d neglected the backroads for too long. Since we got the motorcycles we've not played out on the Forest Service roads that we used to ply back when we still had the old truck. When I was up at Gates Creek a couple of weeks [...]

A Tomato Filled Weekend

August 19, 2017 - It is a busy weekend, filled with tomatoes! I picked up 60lbs of tomatoes, a couple dozen corn on the cob, onions, 10lbs of chicken backs & necks, and a variety of carrots, celery, fennel bulbs, basil, red peppers, green peppers, jalapeño peppers, onions, and other fresh vegetables. But the tomatoes [...]

A sight for sore eyes

August 13th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

August 13th, 2017 - Rain….it is literally a sight for sore eyes, and sore throats, and sore lungs. The smoke from the forest fires burning inland has made the air quality in the Lower Mainland the worst it's been for a very long time. Its been compared to Beijing recently. But as bad as it [...]

August 2, 2017 - There was only one thing on the agenda today, work. And work hard. There are four creeks that the facility takes and releases chum to: Snootli Creek, Thorsen Creek, Saloompt Creek, and Fish Creek at the Airport Channel. Each has a fence installed at this time of year, the fence traps [...]

Back in Bella Coola

August 1st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

August 1, 2017 - I usually come up to Bella Coola in September, for a couple of days of Chinook collection on the Atnarko. It’s usually a couple of amazing days of drift boats, tangle nets, big fish, and lots of grizzly bears. But I thought I’d switch it up this year since I have [...]

Victoria Harbour

July 18, 2017 - After a day filled with interesting talks, many on topics Ive never thought much about or even been exposed to before but which were very educational, it was out for dinner with former UBC family. After we parted ways I walked back to my hotel, grabbed my camera, and went for [...]

Visit to the Provincial Capital

July 16th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

July 16, 2017 - I’m in Victoria for a few days for a conference. Not a conference I’ve attended before, and although it’s definitely related to what I do, it’s unrelated to anything I’ve ever formally studied, but I thought it pertinent as a learning experience. And that means not a lot of people I [...]

A Walk at the Beach

July 15th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

July 15, 2017 - A sunny Saturday, a slow start, seemed like a good day for a lazy stroll on the beach. We live in such a fabulous place, close the the forest, close to the river, close to the beach. Just a few minutes to any of these and it’s good to enjoy them [...]
