The West Coast of Vancouver Island including the Port Alberni Inlet has seen tons of rain, so again the River and Inlet are swollen with water and people are being evacuated (those that live too close to the waters edge), as the tide rises and fall’s there seems to be no in between! The rain is suppose to keep falling and this week the “Super Tide” (highest tides of the year) is due in a few days! That spells more disaster!
Here are a few photo’s I took today at 1:00pm this afternoon (Tues), and it was unbelievably Low Tide!
Victoria Quay, my favorite place to take pictures, shows an angry, swollen inlet! The boat launch is in the lower right hand corner (by the green roof).
This is aptly called “Dry Creek” it is in a ravine about 1 block from my house, thank god I live on a hill!
