Adventures New and Old

December 30, 2018
Grizzly fishing for Kokanee Salmon

It is almost 2019. The winter solstice is past and days are getting slowly longer. Now is a time for remembering old adventures and anticipating new ones. Many of my reflections are tied up with my favourite photos from 2018: the first grizzly seen at Kokanee Creek in 20 years; the Trumpeter Swans on Kootenay Lake; an American Dipper chick (and its siblings) in the nest; shore birds on the beach at Kokanee Creek; the black bear cub and sow at Six Mile; the Merlin that caught a Flicker right in front of me; the Redtail Hawk that frequented Kootenay Lake for awhile; the Osprey nest at Taghum; and the Western Grebes and Great Blue Herons on the Nelson Waterfront.

There is so much more I could say about 2018, but on this sunny, snowy winter’s day, I am looking forward to the new adventures just over the horizon.

Here’s to the future awaiting us all – I wish you the best of years in 2019!
