Junk

This photo of a modern junk was taken from the bow of a rather large car ferry as it was bearing down on the sailboat.  My telephoto isn’t quite powerful enough to see the scared look on the sailors’ faces but I’m sure it was there.  Technically sailboats do have the right of way over powered vessels however when there is such a size difference I think the ferry in practical terms has the right of way.  With just a minute or less to spare the sailboat was able to make a quick loop to avoid getting hit.

I really like the red sails on this boat.  It’s not something you see on too many boats in Canada.

I just love the colors of the rusty winch against the grey water at Fulford Harbor on Saltspring Island.  If you ever go there make sure to visit the Rock Salt Cafe.  We went there for lunch and I had the Texicana Naan Sandwich and it was one of the best meals I have ever had – for $11.  Definitely worth the stop.
