I had the opportunity to attend a night photography course put on by a local photographer. I learned new techniques and came away with photos I would have only dreamed off taking previously.

Thank you Brad!
At the end of an exciting day on Hornby Island, we sat on the beach. As the sun set in the west, a full moon rose in the east lighting up the bay and the vessels at anchor. A peaceful end to a glorious day.
A quiet evening on the shore of the Salish Sea found these geese quietly swimming, all in a row.
Along the waterfront in Campbell River is Discovery Pier. While it is a nice place to stroll and to watch all the activity on the water, the pier is also an excellent location for salmon fishing. The “bragging sign” on the pier lists many salmon in the 30 pound range that were caught off the pier. For those without fishing rods, there are loaner rods available. Large nets are also provided to raise your salmon from the water to the pier.
Thank you Campbell River.
A scene common to Vancouver Island is the boats in the marinas. Here is the public dock at Campbell River showing some of the many boats moored. A wonderful sight even if one is not on a boat.
I spent time with the lepers in Tenalli, India, distributing food and praying for them. This was life changing experience for me, especially since I was born and brought up in Canada. We do not know the extent of our blessings, and we need to share them.
The sun is shinin’. And I’m enjoying it!

Vancouver Island is a nature lover’s paradise. In October one can see many fungi, of which many are delicious to eat. However, not being that knowledgeable in mushrooms, I prefer to let others do the picking.
This is a very colourful mushroom found in pine forests. I believe it is called Russula, but don’t know which exact species. Pretty to look at.
In October, those of us living on Vancouver Island can expect to see rain and fog. If we dress for the weather, we can still enjoy the beautiful island. Today I went for a walk in the fog. A trail that I have walked many times becomes different under different weather conditions. Today it is ethereal.
An experience common to many of us living on the Island is the early morning ferry to Vancouver. This morning, rather than feeling sorry for myself and drinking more coffee, I wandered up to the sun deck of the ferry and experienced a wonderful sunrise.
How can a day go badly, when it begins so gloriously?
