I’ve been so busy at work this last little while, I still take lots of pictures but don’t have time to run that many. I was glancing back over the library and pulled out a few to publish for my pleasure and I hope yours. These have in common that they’re sort of opaque; in the range from non-self-explanatory to mysterious.

Mysterious nautical architecture (Vancouver harbor)

The above opaque piece of marine architecture is located just offshore of Vancouver’s shiny new convention centre. Maybe a former helipad?

Mysterious nautical architecture (off Keats Island)

The above opaque piece of marine architecture is located just off the premises of Barnabas Family Ministries, a very nice church-run retreat/camp establishment located on Keats Island just around the corner from our cottage.

Obviously you can tie boats up to it, but I’m not sure what the woodwork is in aid of, and most floating anchorages aren’t made of richly-rusting iron.

Feral boys

Above could be the attack of the feral boys, driving ashore somewhere on Vancouver’s Spanish banks to inflict endless video games and bad movies on the populace; in fact, it’s a little league baseball team’s championship-season celebration moving from one beach to another.


The picture above is of a foozle.

Come on then Tim, what's your definition of a 'foozle'? New on me!

A foozle! I've never seen a picture of one before. Could it be referring to this?
