Last weekend, my husband and I went for a walk through the fog to the far end of our street where we planned to follow the path through the woods. When we got there we discovered that most of the trees had been cut down, presumably for a new housing development. This makes me so sad. When my husband bought our house he chose this location because it was outside of town and bordered on a farm giving it some privacy and lots of quiet. It seems that suburbia in encroaching on our perfect little corner of the Cowichan Valley.
I shot this picture at the ferry terminal in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. On the right is the edge of Newcastle Island and on the left is the northeast point of Departure Bay. Directly across is the Sunshine Coast, including Tetrahedron Peak which stands at 1739 metres or 5705 feet. It is part of the Coastal Mountain Range on the west coast of British Columbia.
