Rise of the Full Buck Moon aka Thunder Moon last night at the ever so magikal Rebecca Spit Park on Quadra Island. As @1973bluebird and I sat on the driftwood drinking tea and watching the moon rise, we could hear the humpback whales venting and feel the profound rumbling groan like sounds emanating from them as they congregated in the water out there in the Salish Sea under the flaming orange moon. Truly a blessing on such an auspicious full moon eclipse. Thanks for the great 📸 @1973bluebird #alturahatco #smalhomes #rebeccaspitprovincialpark #fullbuckmoon2020 #salishsea #quadraisland

Yesterday was a day full of whales. I got to start the day with some Ts and end off the day with J Pod at sunset. Presumably J47 Notch breaching along with acrobatics from J56 Tofino. Earlier in the day I was also able to see T36B1 along with many others. • • • #srkw #southernresidentkillerwhales #jpod #kpod #lpod #biggskillerwhales #orca #orcinusorca #killerwhale #blackfish #cetacean #dolphin #whale #sea #ocean #salishsea #sji #pnw #pacificnorthwest #sanjuanislands #fridayharbor #whalewatching #breachthedams #wild #wildlife #extinctionisforever #wildlifephotography #wildandfree #nofishnoblackfish

A night on the water with friends was just what my spirit needed. Add an 80’s dance party, cake, a gorgeous sunset and a harvest moon... it was a perfect summer night. Everything post lockdown just seems sweeter, doesn’t it? 🙏🏻

TIDAL ISLAND // A couple of steps through calf-deep water and you reach the island, if it’s fair to call it one. The lagoon separating it from the larger island is only a few metres across, and on a really low tide, it’s probably not even there. But right now, water surrounds the steep mass entirely. You step out of the lagoon, sandals dripping, and start climbing. It’s strange that such a dubious island could have so much of its own identity when it’s all but connected to a bigger piece of land. But the discontinuity is there, somewhere in the shallow water, and now you are picking your steps up onto a place that is entirely itself. It’s a garden, with vivid brodeia and wild onion half-hidden in dry grass. Here and there stonecrops shine a brilliant, translucent yellow-red against lichen-covered rock. At the top of the rise the ocean is revealed, and you are out of your shelter. The wind pummels, and, a short and steep distance away, waves crash. ACCESS to Salmon Rock: From the head of the dock at Keats Landing, bear uphill and to your right, looking for signs. A short walk will take you to the south end of Keats Island over easy trail. #sunshinecoastbc #explorebc #salishsea #wildplaces #solitude

My Mama Bear heart is so happy seeing my kids' joy fishing for the first time, and playing in the very cold water of the Salish Sea. Thank you to our dear friends staying with us from Hawaii for amazing adventures. @wholemamasclub @dmaui Heartfelt thanks for fishing lessons Dee. #fishing #salishsea

Day 946: Last night was the first time I had really just gone out and watched all the local fireworks instead of being in the thick of it and what a show it was. Fireworks may be problematic for a number of reasons, but as a photographer I appreciated the colorful bursts dotting the horizon as the natural fireworks faded from the sky and the very partially eclipsed moon rose from the Cascades. • • • #mtbaker #fireworks #fourthofjuly #happy4th #baker #cascades #pnwonderland #pnw #skagitvalley #skagit #sunset #evening #staysafe #bluehour #longexposure #cascadia #getoutside #salishsea #pugetsound #photoaday #photooftheday

I have this dear friend, @glacialsnout , who loves fish. He has an eye for finding them and his passion for them is infectious. I didn’t notice them much for a while, but he helped me pay closer attention ❤️Yesterday, a tiny shape caught my eye. It looked a little like a shell but it was moving. Moving in a different way than a snail or a hermit crab in a snail shell. When I looked closely, I saw that it was a very special little fish, a Grunt Sculpin. They aren’t great swimmers, so they use their pectoral fins to hop around the sea floor. And they are cute as heck. The second photo is a large Buffalo Sculpin that was so stunning, with pink hues and mottled skin textures. It was just lounging out in a clam shell. @glacialsnout wasn’t physically there with me, but my excitement at finding these beauties, and knowing he would have been excited too, was kind of like having him there in spirit. Thanks, Preston for sharing your fish-enthusiasm with me!

Had an amazing day with Isabella and Ruby! Genoa bay, cowichan bay, maple bay, magical picnic, and a classy captain boat cat, that looked like he just set the table with crystal for the dinner hour.

The camera never does the full moon justice. The July full moon is called the buck moon because it is when young bucks start their antlers. Also called the hay moon, as the hay harvest occurs now. #fullmoon #buckmoon #haymoon #kakyaakan #salishsea #seablufftrail

Penstemon and oceanspray (Holodiscus ) in Lincoln Park. Both are plants I remember from part of a childhood spent roaming the woods of the Columbia River Gorge, learning to identify native plants. My parents loved the oceanspray that bloomed so profusely every summer. #Penstemonovatus #oceanspray #Holodiscus #Holodiscusdiscolor #creambush #lincolnparkseattle #seattleparks #LincolnPark #seattleparksandrec #seattleparksandrecreation #PugetSound #SalishSea #WestSeattle #WestSeattlelife #Seattlelife #moreSeattle #pnwlife #thatpnwlife #westernnature #pnwdiscovered #seattlelife #livelocal

I am over joyed at the responses I have received about my hand made earrings; thank you all so much for your interest and support! Hang tight as I work through setting up my artist profile and getting it up and running! By the way, this design is an absolute favorite of mine, I where them everywhere.

K20 “Spock” breaching off of Lime Kiln earlier today. There are so many things I want to say but right now I can’t find the words. At the end of the day I’m just grateful that I was able to slip down to the water’s edge and watch them play as they went by. I hope they’re finding fish to eat. No fish, no blackfish. #orca #killerwhale #srkw #kpod #whale #dolphin #blackfish #nofishnoblackfish #protectwhatyoulove #wildlife #nature #salishsea #sanjuanisland #wastateparks #wastate #limekilnstatepark

We use commercial prawning traps on westcaper, the holes are bigger allowing the small prawns to exit easily... doesn’t stop those pesky squat lobsters from getting in though when you drop a touch too deep. • • • • • • • #prawning #bcspotprawns #spotprawns #salishsea #saanichinlet #saanichpeninsula #woodenboat #lifeaboard #liveaboards #liveaboardlife #harvest #workboat #homeiswhereyouanchorit #lobsterboat #westcoast #pnwadventures #explorebc #vanislecollective #vanisletrue #vanislemag #folklifemagazine #pacificyachtingmagazine #vancouverislandguide #vancouverisland

San Juan Island Yacht Club. . Currently I'm spending my days working and isolating in my housing unit, but at night I get to bike around and see a bit of the town! Being from middle class Missouri, I've definitely never been on a yacht or sailboat before—everyone on the island seems to have one though. . . #sanjuanislands #fridayharbor #sanjuanisland #salishsea #washingtonstate #pacificnorthwest #boatlife #dusk #landscapephotography #landscape #boats #onthewater #sunset #sunsetphotography #sunsetlover #sunsets #reflections #pnwlife #pnwadventures #pnwphotographer #travelphotography #travel #pnwonderland
