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.

    Once again very, very nice. Seeing those old minesweepers brought back memories of 20 plus years ago when I was able to take a fishing trip off the north tip of Vancouver Island on a converted minesweeper, MV Marabelle. We flew in on a float plane and fished in small dingys.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours. Hopefully we can do some d/s riding this summer.
