Looking for a project?



Several months ago I found this old gutted airplane and took a few pictures of it. More recently I got curious to know more about it. Near as I can figure it was a Beech 18 and likely a source of spare parts for blue and white Beech 18 float plane in the middle picture.
If these old planes could talk, what stories they could tell and what places they've been...

Serious pollen!



Serious amounts of pollen this spring! 

The first picture is what landed in the lake and drifted up against the dock.
The second shot is the windshield of my truck one morning!

Time to break out the decongestants!

Same scene, different zoom...



Here are a couple of pictures of Hardy Bay from last weekend. I didn't realize it until I went to post these two shots that they are both of the same view just different zoom settings. Amazing difference a few hundred mm can make...

My new excuse...

 

I just finished reading this article. Apparently we aren't supposed to cut the dandelions when they first show up in the Spring. The bees, beetles and birds need them...

Perfect, a new excuse not to mow the lawn! 👍

Light as a feather...


I watched this little Seagull and several others like it touching lightly on the water barely getting their feet wet. Each time flying away with a small fish in their beaks.

Big Mooch...

"I'd gladly pay you Tuesday for a nice big fish today..."🐟


Sea Lions are like icebergs, only 10% show above the water. These big guys can weigh anywhere from 1,200 to 2,400 pounds!

Bird's eye view...


Found this majestic bird doing lazy circles on the thermals this afternoon. What a view it must be from up there!
