Riding the Slides

Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park
Chris Tretwold, a native of Bellingham, expertly glides the rapids. These 10 knot rapids on Saturday were warm up exercises for him as on Monday 13+ knots were expected to surge through the narrows!

Tackling it head on

Update:

Chris has reported that Monday's 13+ knot tide were fantastic! His unexpected highlight came on the paddle back to Egmont after dark.

"The bio-luminescence flashing from the wake of our kayaks and the swirls of our paddle strokes made it a very memorable experience."

You earned it Chris...the magic. Rewards come to those who 'jump in'!

Coming to a Theatre Near You


Ready and Waiting--a photo by Kristina

The wonderful world of TGIF, a youth theatre group, based out of an elementary school in Vancouver. I was asked to take mug shots of the young actors for their presentation next Thursday night.

Glaucous Gulls are among the most predatory of all the seagulls. It is an active hunter that captures birds, small mammals, and fish... oh yes and French Fries at Granville Island.

Downtown Vancouver from Capital Hill in Burnaby


photo and editing by Kristina

Vancouver is a visually impressive city with its varied landscapes. This view is angled from Capital Hill, a neighborhood in North Burnaby. April is an exciting month with its cherry blossoms, daffodils, and transition into longer days. Vancouverites return to their evening jogs along the seawall in preparation for the Vancouver Sun Run. Easter's feasts and treats have come and gone as we look forward to a Mother's Day Brunch or Victoria Day long weekend. Forgive the rain as it puddles our city's forecast... I have to laugh at the number of ways Enviroment Canada can describe a rainy day!
