An interesting boat appeared today
This morning I looked out and this strange boat was sitting (or floating) just out front of our house. I just asked Jim -- apparently it is a Canada Coast Guard Boat. Makes sense - see the Maple Leaf on the side. It was there for most of the day today. Sometimes we get cruise ships that come up the inside on there way to Alaska. Boy are they impressive to see, and they are just the small ships.
I stayed home today and worked on getting some DJ blocks prepped and ready to take on the trip to Oregon. I also worked on this project, but it is a secret --- so that is all I can say about it.
And the bear continues to wreak havoc in the neighbourhood. Apparently there are TWO bears. The bear I have seen is a small male that is not causing too much of a problem but there is a very large bear that is running around the neighbourhood tearing apart building and turning over large freezers and the like. I saw the damage that the bear did to the neighbours small shed. The shed was a very solid shed with siding that matched the house and it pulled off large pieces of siding like they were paper. There has been a bear trap up the street for over a week now - but with no success. So not sure what the next step is with this bear, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous when I take the dog out for a walk. Although I think bears mostly wander around at night - and the Jenny certainly has been barking in the middle of the night on a regular basis. Hopefully they catch the bear soon, real soon!!
