Saw this on my walk
« on: January 02, 2011, 06:29:49 PM »

 On my many different walks I see some pretty odd things. This is what I saw this morning, found a house on a barge to be odd. I read the signs and I guess it's a bunk house of some sorts.
 Does anyone see odd things that are there one min and gone the next?

It's good to see the Coast Mountains in the background.It's almost been a year and it made me a bit homesick.

 Yup there`s something about the mountains covered in snow that always makes it feel like home.
 Guess you miss stuff like this too.

The last thing that I saw that was there one minute and gone the next (actually less than a minute) was the nice Whitetail Buck that I missed on the last day of hunting season back in December.  :-\

 I was walking along a beach on Bowen Island one morning and this came flying along the waters and pulled up on the beach. :)
 







 I really have no idea what they were doing as they pulled up, jumped off then took off again. I'm searching the beach for rocks and these guys come out of nowhere.  :)

Maybe they saw a really nice rock with a high powered telescope and wanted to get it before you. :D

 Well I hope they found it 8) Tax payers money hard at work yet again. 8)
 When I live on Winter Cove Bay on Saturna Island these guys were the only ones that could get a person off the island if they needed to get to the hospital in a rush.

 Me and Darla went for a walk at White Rock today.
 


 D liked this gull.......it made me hungry for fish and chips! :)
 



 Here's a cool boat that me and D would love to live on!
 


  It sure was windy and cold but holding hands with D made for a great day. :)

Thanks for the pictures. It looks like an interesting place to live !

 On our way to the river there's this cool farmhouse that sits in the middle of a turf farm.
  


 This is Golden Ears, there's a ice field behind it.
  


  Here's a few Canada geese that forgot to fly south for the winter. :)
 


   K D just told me that there's no such thing as Canada geese cause their really American geese........is she pulling my leg? :D

 Well it wasn't really on our walk it was more like on our way back from a walk dropping off some Aisha (sp) wood to a customer that we saw a new born lamb.  :) I've seen hundreds of lambs born back on the farm. This is the first time Darla has ever seen a baby lamb before and the first time she's ever held one. :)
 


 She wanted to bring it home. :)
 


I told her that the potatoes that were gonna go around it were bigger then the lamb so we would have to wait a few months. :D :D
 The customer also had this cool birds nest on the property.
 


 And we saw this one while out walking this morning. If it was a bit bigger and my flat screen would fit I'd move in there. :D

 Well I was walking trough the forest yesterday morning, nice and peaceful. Sure is nice to see how mother nature works.
 


 Seeing new trees and the old ones and how everything works as one. :)
 


 And then I see this. :o
 


 Why is it that years ago when they logged they never cleaned up behind themselves?

I always find it interesting to come across evidence of man in the forest whether it is an old homestead,aboriginal or logging.
In Squamish there is still remenants of Merril and Ring's Railroad logging from the water through to Brohm Lake.
The abandoned rail line is popular with hikers and history buffs.
I was thinking of this very thing this morning while having breakfast,how man's efforts rarely last long before rotting or rusting away.I was thinking on spar trees and guyline stumps and how hard they worked to rig the trees and yard the logs.
Most of the spar trees would have been felled and used again but there were a few in Squamish that were left standing and we could see one from our kitchen window in Brackendale while I was growing up.Over the years the surrounding regrowth grew tall around it and the once mighty spar tree lost height through decay and eventually swapped vertical for horizontal.They logs they yarded are probably still around in the form of houses and boats and furniture all over the country even though the men that logged there are long gone.

There is also a old 2" dia cable skyline left over from Merrill and Ring that is all but gone from rust and fir needles.It would have bore the weight of many large turns of logs over 80 years ago and now is vitually soil.
I appreciate some people object to a misplaced fuel tank or old car or tractor but it's fun for some to stop and consider the lives of others that were there before us.How hard they worked and where are they now.
