Four days on ‘The Island’ —- The Salish Sea

29 May


i write the songs

The morning regimen:

Hardtack and a few berries.

On the way to the Aquarium …

… I spot an old Seadog.

Quickly I don my Snake Plissken eyepatch
and Capn’ Hook mustache for a photo op!!

We finally make to the Aquarium.

Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea

The entrance is impressive.  Reminds me of the
Nautilus submarine from Walt Disney’s version of
Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954)!
One of my favorite movies!

The Salish Sea covers quite an area. 

The Aquarium is quite small really – by Aquarium standards. I’ve been
in some huge ones – like in Vancouver or Monterey. But it has a
lot of features aimed at children.

Octopus on the glass.

There be whales here.

3 old dogs downtown.

    Nice shots, JC! I have been daydreaming of a VI trip in the summer. All that water has me drooling.

      Thanks Cindy! I’ve been very fortunate over the years with my visits to The Island – always hitting good weather. There’s a lot to see here. Victoria is great.

    Another great post on Victoria Island. I really like all the great and beautiful pictures of the aquarium you went to. Those are also very beautiful fish there . I remember visiting the aquarium on my visit to Hawaii lots of fun. I updated my photography page. Can’t wait for your next post.
