Tuesday September 1 2009
Well I have worked and lived on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in First Nation communities now for two years and this would have been an interesting challenge to do from the start, but I guess better late than never. I fly out to a couple of reserves via float plane on a regular basis. Well today I was on the plane and out in my isolated communities. Well there was red tide today and the water actually looked like blood. Very interesting I don't think in the two years flying Ive seen red tide before. To bad I didn't have my camera handy, it was in my bag in the cargo hold. It was a very uneventfully flight calm and sunny, with a ton of fog, coming in off the open ocean, good thing we didn't need to go through it. Its hard to land on water if there is fog, you have to hope to find an open hole (in the cloud cover) so you can get through. Its fun though.
