Re: Unbelieveable Easter in BC!

Well the Womboat was in the water yesterday to test some new gear then back out again today. What's more it was an absolutely glorious long weekend in Sydney. I'm trying to think nice thoughts of you Fast but it's all through gritted teeth.

Won't be long 'til this is behind us. (at least that's what I'm trying to convince myself of right now - as the wind is howling and snow is blowing....)

This weekend is my annual pilgrimage to Welland (for a Shipwrecks symposium put on by the Niagara Divers' Association). I usually think of it as my end-of-winter event.

Next weekend is our marina's wine and cheese - the beginning of the social year.

Won't be long....won't be long....won't be long....

Also, I'll have to give Pirates Cove a look-see. Reminds me of Smuggler's Cove on your side of the Straits. Wallace Island is another nice hidey-hole near there, and don't forget North Cove (not a very well know/used spot) for awesome sunsets thanks to the lumber mills near Nanaimo.
Pirates has always been my favourite hideyhole. The entrance is very narrow and S-shaped so be very careful on your first entry.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

From my bedroom window this morning (it was snowing very hard, but the giant flakes didn't show up in the picture):
