On Wednesday Ryan, Dave and I went over to Bowen Island to visit my professor. ??The ferry took about 20 minutes from Horseshoe Bay and in hindsight we probably should have gotten on by foot. ??My prof took us out on his sailboat and Ryan, being the only one who has ever sailed, was assigned as first mate while Dave was the skipper and I was somewhere below the bucket swabber. ??We sailed around the island, across the inlet and saw an eagle up close. ??The weather was good and the waters were calm (which was all I could ask for). ??Here are some shots.
