In her glassine way,
the Sound is sitting low.
The tide has run away,
as rocks are there to show.
With a ripple from afar,
Clayaquot soon will stir.
Returns a fathom of uprising,
To greater depths all reoccurs.

Oops - perhaps a bit too aggressive.

Nice photo! I believe that the BC Gulf Islands received the term “Gulf” before it was realized that the inside passage was also accessible at the north end via Johnstone Strait, hence not really a “Gulf”. Not sure that is accurate.

That is my understanding as well… Captain Vancouver didn’t realize it was a Straight. I guess they didn’t have the internet back then :grin::rofl:

Don’t know. It was our first year here after moving from California.

No leaves on the trees. I’m guess that means that the water is cold?

In canton that’s the first week of May on the Grasse River… it’s not the warmest water of the year!

My favorite thread! Not nearly as pretty as most, but here’s a couple from an overnighter on the Little River in Central TX last year - tributary of the Brazos. One of them is actually a very ugly picture (took me 45 minutes to negotiate that log jam) but hey, makes all the others look better, right!
