Boom Boat

Seen up and down the West Coast of BC these little boats move and help pile logs ready for the mills and for shipping to ports for exports around the world of our great wood from our beautiful West Coast Old Forests.

First Coffee Of The Day "Ahhh"

I like the early morning coffee when the sun first rises and the critters stir from the night. The Owls are still getting to bed and the odd call breaks the dawn. The domestic animals start to call out. Eagles call across the valley, and the geese and ducks rise off the lake. Crows start their flight for breakfast from within the forests branches the wild acrobatic flying antics and deep calls. The little song birds greet the sunlight in a spectacular chorus. Deer stretch out in the sun and then slowly move across the farm fields from their night beds.Yep like those morning cups of coffee.

Somenos Marsh "The Other Side" Part 1

A quick but very scenic boardwalk takes you on a tour of the marsh

Birders Welcome

A multitude of signs show the area inhabitants

A direct line to my house by bird

Lots of various bird houses and shelters are throughout the marsh

Somenos Marsh is a fairly large area that runs right beside the Highway from Victoria to Up Island Destinations and sits beside the Town of Duncan.

Most people drive right by the Somenos Marsh teaching area it is worth a quick stop.
