Having a little trouble coming up with this weeks blog text and pictures ideas. It is "F" week at ABC for fishing. This is the rough draft of what I have done so far. I have run out of time...So here we go.
The ocean sparkles.
Sometime it turns everything on the palette blue and you are just a dot on
enormous seascape ranging from cobalt to ultramarine.
Sometimes a whale comes steaming right up to the boat to have a look at you.
Sometimes the humpback whale plays gently with seals, this is true in my mind.
Sometimes you become part of a family of sea lions and experience their fears and want to help them.
Sometimes you get yummy things to eat from the sea and sometimes you get things you are familiar with and other times you have no idea what they are.
Sometimes I can see so clearly on the ocean, I can steer the boat so much better than a car. Sometimes porpoises come to the bow and help us to travel along....they are so fast I cannot get a picture of them.
On the ocean there are so many more birds and they perform such wonderful entertaining acrobatics, diving and screaming, some casual, some shy.
Harbour seals will proudly present their babies to you.
Eagles will give us a glimpse of what it would be like to live on a private island in a huge treetop nest where no people ever can come. They watch us closely.... to scavenge any waste.
All these amazing creatures are the reason why I love to be on the ocean. I am at home on the ocean.
This is probably a bad idea for a post. oh well. I have found that bloggers don't watch the videos, takes too long for them. I will continue to pop them in but don't feel you need to watch. I am doing the videos mostly for myself as a learning process. The videos are about fishing for hatchery fish today at Pedder Bay, B.C. Here are some Pedder Bay pictures.
Below will be two videos. They don't show up on email or feed.
The first video shows us heading out to go fishing from Pedder Bay, B.C. The Fisheries Boat was checking on all the boats to see they had all the proper paperwork. I wanted them to come over to us so I could film them.
The second video shows us catching two fish. We had to check the fish to see if we can keep them. If they are hatchery fish, the adipose fin is cut off. This is the little fin back by the tail. We are allowed to keep two of the hatchery fish for one license, no wild fish right now. We don't know what hatchery they come from, could be Puget Sound most likely, or Fraser River. We pulled in two hatchery coho salmon, nice and red inside, good to smoke or just to eat. Don't watch videos if you don't like fishing. o.k. There are two more videos in this series and I have not done them.
Thank you to these memes for allowing bloggers to share their story. I may not remember to enter them all but I still list them as this is the quick way for me to do it. It is fishing for "f" week at ABC Wednesday.

edit note: I sometimes have to republish after I see how many errors I made or links not working. I list all the memes for the week now as I can only spend a short time on the computer as my eyes get tired. Such is life.

Help Internet peopleI am having trouble. The blogger lightbox will not work on Internet Explorer 9. I would click a picture and it would show in a dark box with all the pictures....now not working on IE9. Anyone know how to fix it. It works on other browsers not IE9. Frustrating, none of my gadgets work!
