A series of wild storms came in off the Pacific around Christmas this year (2010) and caused high waves and gales to batter the waterfront of Victoria on southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Ross Bay is one of many coves and bays along the shoreline and the seawall always becomes a place for storm-watchers. Along with the waves we get great quantities of logs and other debris tossed ashore by the waves, which eventually make great playgrounds for kids and adults alike when the weather becomes more moderate.

    Terrific shot George, especially when viewed large. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if my cousin wasn’t there watching this too! All the best to you and Jann for 2011 old friend.

  • Hi Peter, how is 2011 shaping up so far? lol! Still have about 65 minutes to go over here :)
    Glad you liked the pic, you mean your cousin does wacky things like this too? Ah well,there’s something about a good storm!
    Jann and I wish you the very best, we’ll be trading comments along the way. Cheers, George
