Song Of The Day – “Weightless One” by Two Hour Traffic


A Canadian band out of Prince Edward Island.

Sailing Kootenay Lake


Not much wind, not much to do.  Had a full cockpit so didn’t raise the jib, likely should have.  Love the views.  Our SV is a 25 foot O’day from 1979.  Loving it.  Sorry it is on an iPhone so a pretty narrow shot.

Alaska From The Ocean

A shot I took with my iPhone in July of 2013 as we cruised past on a Celebrity cruise liner.  A different look of the mountains from what we are used to as we see them from the Alberta side daily.  Very stark contrast as they rise out of the ocean as compared to the foothills and prairie on our side.

Song Of The Day – “September Fields” by Frazey Ford


Being as how we are in the Kootenays, it seems appropriate to post a tune by Castlegar’s own Frazey Ford.  It doesn’t hurt either that it is a terrific tune.

Song Of The Day – “Charmer” – Aimee Mann


A tune by Aimee Mann, Charmer, released as a single in 2012.

Pilot Bay Lighthouse – Kootenay Lake, BC, Canada


Took a walk up to the Pilot Bay Lighthouse.  Easy trail, slightly uphill and well worn.  The lighthouse is wood and was used to note the entrance to the West Arm of Kootenay Lake.  It has not been used for many years and is the subject of a historical preservation society.  The light was visible for 30 miles in each direction on the lake.

This is the view of the lake from the top of the lighthouse.  Spectacular views everywhere in this part of the world.

Song Of The Day – “Watch Out For The Fuzz” – Howie Beck


Just a tune, on vacation in the Kootenays, but it is flipping raining.  Can’t do much sailing in the rain.  Howie Beck with some great Adult “Alternative” for you, whatever Adult Alternative is.  Just good music from what I can tell.

Fish Creek Provincial Park – Calgary, Alberta, Canada


Discovered this park in the centre of Calgary and will share a few photos.  A beautiful walk in an area surrounded by a million people.

Song Of The Day – “The Beat Goes On” – Emilie-Claire Barlow


Some Canadian jazz from about 5 years.  Good take on a classic.
