- First you go to the end of the rainbow.(like it ever quits moving...) - Next you look around for a little man dressed in green who will be repairing shoes. - Now comes the tricky part, catch the little man!(capturing a leprechaun is almost impossible by the way) - If by chance you do manage to capture the little fellow he is obliged to tell you where his pot of gold is.(assuming he actually has a pot of gold...)
After thinking about the logistics involved with mounting an expedition to chase rainbows and capture leprechauns I came to the conclusion that we should all just go and buy ourselves a lottery ticket instead!
I thought I would add to Paul's wood themed post and put up a photo of the rays from a sunrise hitting a dead tree on the beach. It doesn't sound that interesting but I liked the colors it brought out in the wood.
This is a common sight and not the least bit alarming for those of us living in the Temperate Rainforest on Northern Vancouver Island.
The felled trees and the standing trees in the background are all about 60 to 70 years old, that is to say that this area has already been harvested at least once and will be harvested again in another 60 or 70 years.
After these logs are hauled away the tree planters will come through and plant hundreds of new seedlings, Soon after that the roads will be deactivated and within 20 years "you won't be able to see the forest for the trees" as the old saying goes!
I took this nice picture of the "John P Tully" at anchor in Hardy Bay several days ago. When I got home an had a little closer look at the picture I couldn't help but notice rust streaks and chipped paint. Looks like it's time to get out the ol paint brush and get this fine vessel all shined up again!
