A couple of weekends back, we took a walk on the beach when the tide was way, way out and the sun clear and slanting.

These rocks are normally underwater, so whatever’s providing that green glow is, technically, seaweed.

Sunlit seaweed-covered rocks on Spanish Banks, Vancouver

For Vancouver aficionados, this is at the western end of Spanish Banks. There’s a navigation marker here that, when the tide is in, can be the best part of a kilometre offshore; but on this day we walked up to it; it’s tall.

As we were walking back up the beach I turned around and zeroed in on the top of the marker, silhouetted against sunlit clouds.
