Although not one of my better pics, one of my fave taken lately. This distant bird is a golden eagle.... the first that I have seen on Vancouver Island!!

Route planning the night before - likely still got lost anyways 🤷🏼‍♀️ (The campfire was within local fire regulations)

This beautiful juvenile bald eagle landed directly in front of me as I was taking photos of the low laying fog over the ocean. I’m saddened to hear about the recent poisoning and deaths of local vancouver island eagles. Currently 6 have been reported deceased and 6 are in treatment in the Cowichan Valley. I know for fact 2 have been recently found in my own home town deceased as well in the past week which is said to be unrelated to the issue in the Cowichan Valley area. It’s suspected that the eagles are falling sick due to farm animals being euthanized with pentobarbital and not disposed of properly. Anyone in vancouver island who spots a downed, sick, injured, or dead bald eagles is asked to call the Raptor Rescue Society at 778-936-0732. #raptorrescuesociety

Some friends and I decided to take in the sunset at a local beach and hope for a good view of the full moon rising.

This week, I decided to keep more local in Nanaimo, and I decided to go to one of my favourite places: Neck Point Park. I never get enough of this place. Love it in the early evenings to really see the colours in the sky and have it reflect on the water. Hope you all enjoy the shots. And thank you to all who are following me. . . . #sharethecoast #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #tourismnanaimo #beautifulbritishcolumbia #traveldestinations_ig #longexposure_shots #waterscape #beautyofbc #landscapephotography #lovewhereyoulive #westcoast #vancouverislandguide #centralvanisle #neckpoint #britishcolumbiacanada
The first view point! Who knew there would be a snowstorm up top?! I’m so thankful I get to call this beautiful place home now. I miss my friends and family, but life is too short and you have to go with what is meant to be. Vancouver Island is home. Always has been and always will be. I’m so thankful for this new adventure! @thenorthfacevancouver @keencanada @patagonia ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ #getoutside #getoutstayout #exploremore #theglobewanderer #letsgosomewhere #optoutside #earthfocus #liveoutdoors #travelstoke #nakedplanet #nature_brilliance #artofvisuals #welivetoexplore #natureaddict #naturediversity #ourplanetdaily #earth_deluxe #instanaturelover #hardbite #allpotatonocouch #hellobc #explorenanaimo #sharebc #explorevancouverisland #sharevi #wonderfulvancouverisland #vancouverislandguide #explorebc #wanderingbc #tahvi
