Sailing Kootenay Lake


Not much wind, not much to do.  Had a full cockpit so didn’t raise the jib, likely should have.  Love the views.  Our SV is a 25 foot O’day from 1979.  Loving it.  Sorry it is on an iPhone so a pretty narrow shot.

Pilot Bay Lighthouse – Kootenay Lake, BC, Canada


Took a walk up to the Pilot Bay Lighthouse.  Easy trail, slightly uphill and well worn.  The lighthouse is wood and was used to note the entrance to the West Arm of Kootenay Lake.  It has not been used for many years and is the subject of a historical preservation society.  The light was visible for 30 miles in each direction on the lake.

This is the view of the lake from the top of the lighthouse.  Spectacular views everywhere in this part of the world.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange


This week we have Orange.  Interesting choice.  I took this sunset photo on Kootenay Lake in September of 2014.  The pictures do not do it justice.
