Cool weather the last few days. We had a bit of snow mid week and then yesterday high southeasterly gales. Aine and I were crossing to Horseshoe Bay and she spotted some foamy white spray on top of the water in the lee of Bowyer Island. As we watched water rose up in swirling clouds off the sea, more like huge dust devils than tornadoes. It was only the second time in my life I have seen these things in the Queen Charlotte Channel although they aren't that uncommon. We should have a local name for them...suggestions in the comments.
