Up Close

Several weeks now of mostly warm, sunny weather. Much of our time spent on the deck or in the kayaks, in the protected waters of the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands.

Mid-June brought super low tides, exposing sea critters like these starfish. Indigo managed to find an uncharted rock in Blind Bay on Shaw Island, and held tight for an hour or so until the tide came back in. The first time she has run aground.

The season of the wild roses is almost past, but now is the very fleeting flowering of Ocean Spray. These clusters of tiny flowers are white for only two days or so, then they turn brownish. Maybe that's the reason for the name - what could be more fleeting than the white spray blowing off a wave on a windy day?
