The good old days!
Location – Looking south down the Strait of Georgia (Salish Sea), BC
Taken at one of our beautiful local parks in our area. The cedar in this photo fascinated me.
It has obviously had a hard life but it still prevails.
Hopefully sailors don’t have to take warning after all this stormy weather. Sunrise at 7:00 pm this morning.

The Morden Colliery is a remnant from the coal mining industry that operated in the Nanaimo area on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Coal mining was started in about 1908 by the Pacific Coast Coal Mines Company. The Morden Colliery opened in 1912 with limited success, lasting only until 1921 with a brief reopening in 1930. What remains is the 72 foot head frame and tipple made of reinforced concrete, unusual as they were traditionally made with timbers. The mine is now flooded and is part of the Morden Colliery Historic Park and Regional Trail.
