Actually it's Steve, Pete's the bald guy in the vids that runs the ex-commercial fishboat and the other Peter stearing my boat. There's too many Pete's in this world. Glad you enjoyed them. Thanks, my boat is a Truant 33, the pilothouse is quite different than most Truant's.

Ron...check out his article, Ancient flying reptile found on Hornby Island. Maybe it was in Tribune Bay, looks like that's where it should have been found. Keep your eyes open when your there next.

They may name the next fossil after you...I mean flying reptile.
By the way, beautiful, and very interesting photo. I have seen interesting sandstone rocks on the other side of Hornby but not anything remotely like this. I have never anchored in Tribune nor have I done any real exploring there, I need to get there this summer.

Hi Steve... interesting article. Funny I don't remember hearing anything about it at the time.

Thanks for the comments on the pic.. we kayaked down the eastern shore of Tribune at sunset and got a whole series of interesting shots... the low light and shadows really highlight those amazing patterns. In many ways I think it can look very macabre.

Definitely worth a visit, but bug out at the first sign of a building SE breeze that is not just a local thermal summer inflow.. There's really no wiggle room on the time to leave if that happens.

I have a bunch of sunset pictures from sailing this fall/winter. I think HUGOSALT took the best one though.

New York City would be over the horizon if it weren't for the tall buildings.

Regards,
Brad
