The gallery On to Whistler starts with some photos I took on the drive from Powell River; waiting for the ferry at Saltery Bay I got some shots of a bald eagle, who was just hanging around the ferry terminal waiting for something edible to come along:
We watched the ferry come in and dock, a very slow and stately process. We've gotten so used to cars and airplanes that we forget how long it takes to make a boat do anything in the water:
At Langdale I got some shots of seagulls from above, they were cruising below me, looking for garbage (sorry, but it's true):
I don't have a lot of photos of Whistler itself, the town just isn't that photogenic. I've written about the bears we saw in another post, they have their own gallery. The day I enjoyed the most was the nice day, when Jim went on a strenuous hike and I strolled around Lost Lake, a lovely lake that you can get to on the bus. Here's Lost Lake from part way around, you can see the beach:
The high points of Lost Lake were the female merganser duck, with her five very small ducklings riding on her back:
I got several more photos of the ducks, and some very beautiful shots of the lake edges, but the other highlight was this fellow:
That, my friends, is an osprey, who hovered overhead long enough for me to get several other photos! All the photos are at the gallery Lost Lake, for your viewing pleasure.
