A friend of mine owns this weapon, an apoohah, probably not correct spelling. Made in Finland it shoots a 50 cal round and is the sniper rifle that a marine in Afghanistan killed a combatant 1.5 miles away setting an all time record.Get the pirate bastards before they are even close!
WE crossed the border at Osoyoos , BC and drove to Hope for the night. In the morning we hit the road early and followed the Fraser River North. In this part of BC there are no passess to cross. One has to drive around the mountain!
Another shot of the mighty Fraser.
We left the Fraser near Liloloot and headed west. The road was dicey in a lot of places, narrow , broken and no lines. We stopped at Duffey Lakes, as you can see quite scenic.
This one for the Ironworkers. Lion Gate Bridge as viewed from Stanley Park in Vancouver.
One of the good things about traveling on a scooter as you go right to the head of the line at the ferries. Also reservations are not required.
We saw a pod of orcas and everyone ran to that side of the ferry. THey were too far away to get a decent picture.Just have to trust me on this one.
Passing by Gabriola Island in the Gulf Islands on the way to Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
