It’s official. Kelley and I now live by the Salish Sea. We still live by Puget Sound, of course–it’s just now acknowledged to be part of an ecologically coherent system that ignores the Canadian border. So, hey, all you British Columbia folks: we live by the same sea. I like that. I like thinking of us sharing our wee ecosystem. I won’t throw rubbish in it if you don’t; I won’t wash the car at home if you don’t; I won’t spray the roses with anything evil if you don’t. (Actually, last year we finally found an organic oil spray that kills the black blight stuff that destroys our roses, so this was the best rose summer ever at our house, and No Salmon Were Harmed during their production.)
Speaking of salmon, they’re back at Carkeek Park‘s Pipers Creek. I haven’t had time to go look recently but will most definitely make time to go next week. I’m feeling a bit cabin-feverish: it’s been all work work work this month. But Thanksgiving Week will be a time to play.

Looks gorgeous–how's the rain factor?
I won't throw trash in it even if you do– but I WILL yell at you for throwing trash in it.
Hmph. I'm living on the Salish Sea, and my average annual rainfall is 18 inches. But then, Seattle only gets 38, iirc.
Is Victoria still dumping unprocessed sewage?
By the sea by the sea by the Salish Sea…a sea by any other name…
Hey Mordicai, when I see you in a couple of weeks we should drink a toast to Nicola and the Salish Sea.
Raven, well, rain is definitely a factor…
P, yes, but now there's a plan to fix it.
chadao, I like the sound of that :)
Nicola, have you seen this?
