I was lucky enough to spend a few days over the New Year on Savary Island.
For those of you who do not know Savary, it is a small, sandbank of an island north of Powell River and a ten-minute water taxi ride from Lund. The weather was glorious, as you can see from the photos below, and I was thrilled to watch a pair of Stellar sea lions plow their way past the beach. From this deck
we were lucky enough to spot three or four orcas feeding some distance from shore. All in all, an auspicious beginning to 2013.
I don't claim to be any great shakes as a photographer but here are two more shots that I took on New Year's Day.
