    Copeland Islands marine park

    Copeland Islands are a candidate for the ‘best sunset in BC’ category, assuming that such a category exists. Is it the proximity to Vancouver’s smog that creates scenes like these, or is it a more natural phenomenon? Either way it makes for a wonderful end to a day.

  • Leaving it all behind

    The faint glow of the moon shining over the ocean was the only thing to disturb the darkness. We paddled blindly, threading a line between the flickering moonlight and the rumbling surf.

After some bigger waves passed I paused for a moment, then surfed in through the darkness, bouncing sideways towards land.
