We get to see some interesting traffic in the waters around Spanish Banks and Locarno Beach. This last Spring, friends were awed by the sight of a whale at both Locarno and Kitsilano (Kits) Beaches. I was envious. Envious, but happy for others treated to such a rarity.
More typically, we see herons and seagulls, with eagles also making appearances.
… and of course, being Vancouver, we have container ships as well as people kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, swimming and skimboarding their ways through our waters.
We don’t always get to see such a a collection of bird, human and ships so neatly lined up and criss-crossing our waters. Here, both the heron and the kayaker seem determined to keep eyes straight ahead … anything but eye contact.
Then, once the kayaker was at a safe distance … home free!
