Now you see him. Now you don't.

Living in Coastal British Columbia we are surrounded by water. That's a good thing for a Pisces like me.


Even in winter we enjoy going out on the chuck. That's what we call the ocean. It's also called the salt chuck. The name is of Pacific Northwest and Canadian origin in the mid-1800s. It is a combination of English (salt) and a Chinook word (chuck) meaning water.


Wayne, John, his dog Bro, and I went for a tin boat ride on the chuck. Wayne and Bro shared the bow while moving through the shallows. When Wayne moved back to his seat, Bro remained as our lookout. -- Margy

  1. It looks like a great ride, though a little cold. The air always seems so crisp when boating on a cold day!
