The best of Salty Fresh Air and Photography

tofino beachThis is not my scenery today. Today I am surrounded by smoke, in fact I have been for 24 hours.  Many places in BC, Washington, and California are dealing with second hand smoke of the worst kind; forest fires.

Sadly the losses go much beyond wildlife, and trees but homes and even lives are being lost due to fires fanned by winds.

I normally can stand on my balcony and enjoy an Okanagan sunset but today I will enjoy one shared by another blogger.

He is another Canadian and he lives in a small town like I do, Tofino,  but I’ve yet to shake his hand. I certainly hope to shake his hand someday.

Maybe it will for you also.

Smell the salt air, see the eagles soar, and perhaps close your eyes for a second and feel the ocean breeze.
