April 25, 2009, and a nice day for a stroll along the beach at Esquimalt Lagoon, on the western shore of Victoria, Vancouver Island. The beach separates the lagoon from the open waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, which in turn separates Canada and the USA at this point. The lagoon is a favourite spot for a variety of waterfowl, swans, geese and so on, and a great place for bird-watching or photography. It’s easy to get to, a short drive from downtown Victoria if you happen to be on a visit, and a really nice place for a day hike, picnic or just wandering around enjoying the weather.
The logs and other wooden flotsam is accumulated over the years, mostly as a result of winter storms pounding the coast and bringing lots of debris from the ocean and the northern coastline of British Columbia.
