Gulf Island Building.


A few days ago we had a storm come through here, and for the most part it's still here. Many of the big ferries cancelled again today, or seriously delayed.

The news reports say that there have been power outages to go along with the flooding and road washouts...nice.

Here's a shot looking over to Vancouver Island to the far left, about 3 1/2 miles away to put the waves into perspective.

The seals will often come into the bay when it gets nasty out front. This little guy (or girl?) hopped into the neighbours' dinghy for a rest.

When the breeze gets up, the birds barely move as they come by. Easy to get a half decent pic when they are nearly motionless in the air.

The missus has been trying to do the grout in the ensuite on and off (mostly off...way off) for the last 6 months or more.

Well, today she came perilously close to finishing...maybe by tomorrow. Starting to look pretty good.

Both of us have been stepping very carefully down the steps to the breakfast nook for lack of having the wood nosings on the steps.

That finally got addressed today (not quite finished) and I must say it's 10 times more comfortable to walk up and down there now.

The wood needs to be sanded and finished. That will get done at the same time as all the other arbutus nosings which are going on the main stairs.

Looks like y'all are getting closer and it looks great.

I've reported the above SPAM but there are no Moderators here right now to do anything about it. At first it was moving fast enough to be a BOT but seems to have stopped now.
