Greetings to all,
Just as I have announced earlier, here:http://forum.shipspotting.com/index.php/topic,16319.msg86658.html#new
I went for a rather short (time wise, definitely not distance wise) trip to Canada, to see the concrete hulks that still form a breakwater at Powell River, Sunshine Coast. Of course, being near Vancouver, there were always other sweet opportunities for a dedicated ship spotter.
I arrived around noon on Tuesday, and immediately proceeded to check on my old acquaintance, derelict ferry "Queen of Sidney" which, by the way, did not look like she deteriorated significantly from the last time I saw her in May 2015:http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2917747
After experiencing a trademark Vancouver evening rush hour, I've spent the night at North Vancouver, closer to Horseshoe Bay, the starting point of a ferry ride to Langdale on the Sunshine Coast. Then some 54 km to Earls Cove, and another ferry ride. The ferry in question was this one:http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2917756
There was also this old Sietas built freighter at Earls Cove:http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2917740
Then, the final 30 or so kilometer stretch of road to Powell River, and the main purpose of my trip, the concrete hulks that make what is considered the world’s largest floating breakwater.
...To be continued...
