The REDS Are Coming

    I've lived on Vancouver Island for more years than I care to remember and I witnessed a spectacle last night for the first time.  I've heard all the warnings in the past  about red tides that make it unsafe to collect food in the ocean when this event occurs.  Well this is what they look like "up close and personal".  I had been invited to a BBQ in Chemainus and as soon as we walked out on the deck we were witness to this view.  Our host happened to mention that we were having crabs as appetizers that he had caught the day before right in front of his property. 

Wonder if he believed that I had just become a vegetarian a couple of hours before ....
