|Entrance Island lighthouse, through light snow and gale force winds.|
Eventually, the mighty gusts began to subside, and the visibility improved. The overcast began to lighten...
...as powerful waves continued to release their massive energy on the Gabriola Island shores.
The Entrance Island lighthouse emerged, once again, from the mist and light snow...
...and the BC Ferry, which had been holding in port in Vancouver, passed by on its way to neighbouring Nanaimo.
I'm sure a good percentage of the passengers were bravely trying to hold on to more than their breath, if you know what I mean.
And throughout it all, the Island power stayed on!
If you can't get out in the kayak, bracing yourself on the shore in a fierce wind storm is a pretty darn good substitute. :)
