The West Coast

 I walked along the edge of the Pacific Ocean this afternoon.  The tide was out so I could walk well into the basin to see the evidence of the ocean.  Below is a small video of my discovering a baby crab.

Campbell River sits on the 50th parallel facing the inland waterway.  This small city of 30,000 is entitled “Salmon Capitol of the World”.

This weekend my visit to The Salvation Army is to discuss the health of the congregation and lead them through a couple of exercises to continue their growth and address identity, mission and context.

I’m told that bald eagles are more numerous here than anywhere else – but eagles love eating Salmon too.  And of course bears love salmon too so lots of them around town.

This is the first time I’ve been this far north on Vancouver Island and like the rest of the island it is a beautiful – a sense of remoteness and an abundance of large trees, streams, rivers, and rocks.  I’m hoping that the sun will make an appearance over the weekend!
