Oceans, Seas and Maritime photos

I was in Ucluelet, British Columbia earlier this week, on the
western side of Vancouver Island. This was the view from my balcony
at 5 a.m. The moon hadn't yet gone to bed for the day.

And in the daytime ...

Nice views.

It was lovely. It was also chilly, but I still slept with the door
open (it was at the foot of my bed) so I could hear the ocean.

Like them a lot! Specially the second one - and I envy you listening to the ocean as you dropped off to sleep.

Ucluelet is wonderful. I stayed in Tofino a few years ago, just up the road.

{Photography.74.1048}: Tom Coleman {tomcoleman} Wed, 13 Mar 2013 00:18:51 EDT (HTML)

Man, its been almost six years now..

We drove through Tofino, I believe. (We follow route books, rather
than maps, so we're usually not sure exactly where we are.)

Tofino is straight up the coast from Ucluelet. Roads dead-end there (out on a peninsula)

I rounded up some of these 35s from our honeymoon. The Speaker hasn't changed a bit.

Got an email with a slide show of the reef.  Couldn't find the same
one on line, but these two seem quite nice.

If you copy and paste the top one, less the " marks, it works.

The bottom one is really lovely.

Curses.  They are purty.

Well, this isn't not exactly a maritime photo, but this guy is from
the ocean, so it kinda counts. Gotta pity the poor chap: he's in a
tank in a supermarket several thousand kilometres from home and a
thousand from the nearest ocean, his claws are tied shut, he has
nowhere to go, his compatriots are crawling all over him, he's about
to get sold so he can be thrown alive into a pot of boiling water,
then eaten (maybe alive)--and to top it all off he has parasitic
shells stuck to him. I think they're mini-scallop shells, but someone
who knows better can correct me. Maybe they're barnacles??

"It ain't easy being green," said Kermit. This one would say, "It
ain't easy being a crustacean," even though it doesn't scan.

I think those are barnacles, Steve. They look like miniature volcanoes.

Nice live, swirly image, Annie.

Now check this out. A very creative use of scarce funds. When ya
can't afford a boat, ya build a raft, attach a kicker to it, and toss
your old couch on board.

{Photography.74.1061}: annie {oceanannie} Sat, 20 Jul 2013 10:45:18 EDT (HTML)

Looks good to me!

I meant to add, too, that I have never been able to eat lobster..fish yes, even the odd mussel years ago, but never a lobster.

{Photography.74.1063}: Jil {rabbit} Sat, 20 Jul 2013 10:59:25 EDT (1 line)

Oooh, I could all but live on lobster.

The raft is too funny! A floating living room.

{Photography.74.1065}: Coyote {coyote} Sat, 20 Jul 2013 11:51:00 EDT (1 line)

I changed my mind. It's a floating man cave :-)

I think it needs a railing...
