On the Waterfront
I love our harbour. It's so industrial and there's always something going on. The freighters fascinate me... Where did they come from? Where are they going? And the tug boats... I have this deep desire to be a tug boat operator for a day. Maybe I shouldn't actually drive the thing... just go along for the ride.
The juxtaposition of nature vs. industry is kind of neat too. Sometimes I'll see Bald Eagles soaring overhead when I'm on the seabus going to work. It's not uncommon to see seals and otters hanging around too. A large colony of seals live down by the marina near the dog park. I'm a little nervous letting Henry swim down there actually... they have been know to be aggressive. I'm sure he's kick their asses though (not!)
