Thanksgiving in Port Alberni

I went out for a paddle, and when I got back the wind really picked up. An hour ago, this was calm...

While paddling by, I saw the that the old boat had been moved, so came to take a look. Oh. That's a nasty crunch.

This is not damage from when it was in the water! The scratches in the pavement show the boat was grabbed with a big claw/bucket on a excavator, and moved by dragging it.

This was attached to the cabin window.

The stern is in terrible shape. A derelict boat. It was dragged across the concrete ridges, which left a trail of fiberglass scrapings. The boat was gone a few days later.

The trees are still enjoying the dry weather.

These will be gone soon, victims of the next windstorm...

The kitesurfer, not enjoying the wind off Kits Beach. He actually managed to keep the kite in the air while he recovered. Impressive.
