Comox Marina

 
Arrived back in Australia 2 days ago after wrenching myself away from spectacular Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada where I've spent the past two months.
 
Above is a shot taken at the Comox Harbour Marina a couple of weeks ago.
The island has apparently just experienced its coldest winter in 40 years, and the wettest March in 10 years.  During my stay it snowed for about 9 days - I was in my element; even shovelling snow from the driveway didn't dampen my enthusiasm!  (Usually living in what has been described as "the driest State on the driest Continent", snow is a novelty!!)
 

 
The colourful access to Comox Fisherman's Wharf
 

Here you can see the water is still frozen

 
This walkway skirts the marina and is a great place to take in the beauty of the Beaufort Ranges (which on this day were not visible due to cloud cover).
 
I look forward to playing "catch-up" by visiting a number of fellow bloggers' pages in the coming weeks, as well as sharing more images from my recent travels.
 
Joining in the fun at Skywatch Friday with thanks to Yogi for hosting.
