Circumnavigating Vancouver Island 2024

Back in 2003, we circumnavigated Vancouver Island, capturing wonderful memories. Now in 2024 we hope to re-visit this large island, and create some new memories!

We woke up at 11:45pm to walk around the marina, and look for glimpses of the Northern Lights. There have been an abundance of solar flares recently. Our HAM radio net had been talking about them, and the interference they cause in radio transmissions. We took photos with our iPhone which uses a 3 second time lapse. What was faint to the eye, was visible to our phone!
