"Mystical Spires"

On every kayaking paddle there is always something that tends to stand out from most other parts of the trip for me on this trip was this rock formation at the end of the Islands outside South Dildo harbour. Their colors and sharpness are much more appreciated when you can be there to experience it. I actually smucked bow first into the rock island as I was taking a series of pictures. I was so captivated and trying to get a good shot as I was steering with my feet the stern rudder, looking thru the view finder which makes things appear further than they actually are, oblivious to the wind howling at my back, when all to, all of a sudden................thud.

Yeah Alison it does and it was quite a relaxing paddle with a little rain falling and fog in the immed. area. Nice day all in all.

I agree with you Alison. Very mystical and Tolkien looking. I'll add it to my far too long list... Great photo Stan!

Hey Stanyel,

That reminds me of another time you t-boned something with your kayak. Dinosaur Lake (?) on the Peace. I'm glad to see that you are back on the East Coast. Your photographs are beautiful and bring back fond memories of your enthusiasm for life. I've been wondering how you've been. It looks like you've found your heaven on earth.

Happy Solstice! Mary
