Sooke 2009 – Fishing and Exploring Aboard Puget Sound Thunder

1 Comment 21 December 2010

Back in July 2009, Ray Robinson and I ran out to Sooke aboard Puget Sound Thunder.  There are times when it’s really nice to have a fast boat, not to mention a skipper capable of handling one.  We packed in quite a bit in three short days.  I finally processed the pics after reviewing the memories.  I bottled them up with Windows Live Movie Maker and received generous permission from Alex Hertz at Blue Note to use a couple of tracks from McCoy Tyner’s superb album “Guitars”.  Enjoy the ride….Enjoy this Holiday Season.   Merry Christmas!

You can watch the video here, in regular mode, or watch in  high definition and full screen by going directly to YouTube:  Select the 720p HD or 1080 HD option from the drop down menu and then select the ‘full screen’ button.  The Esc key will let you exit full screen mode.  High definition requires Big Bandwidth.  If the movie does not flow seamlessly, drop back to standard 360p mode.

Friday, December 3 offered up a spectacular afternoon view of Mount Baker. I couldn’t resist taking a few pics. I love that dusting of snow up in the alpine.


All pics are thumbnails; CLICK on them for the ‘big picture’

And I also enjoy the way Hat Island sits atop ‘A’ dock.  I have always wondered why they named it Hat Island……now I know.
