The creatures in the Sound

Meribeth Deen is our new Undercurrent Editor and she has fallen in love with the ocean.  Today my morning coffee was accompanied by her excellent article on the cetaceans that surround us.

The Cape

This afternoon at the Cape.

A week of snow and rain. Yesterday was bluebird clear. Today is sleet but calm. Varied thrushes calling in the quiet morning.

The Squamish returns

Here is the weather right now.  A fierce Squamish is blowing out in the channel for the first time in months. It is clear and sunny and cold and the water is churning under the gale.  We have had so little wind this winter that I notice every breath that moves through the tree tops.  Today that breath is roaring, and it's welcome to see the regular pattern returning.
