Fanny Bay – Sea Lions and fishing boats

IMG_3937_adj

Each winter California Sea Lions congregate in Fanny Bay while they wait for the herring to spawn in February. The herring fishermen would prefer that the Sea Lions were not eating the herring and salmon, and the Sea Lions would probably be happy if the fishing boats were not there.

The Sea Lions are here to stay…

Across Canada – a moving experience

A bit of a mystery here, as I had a difficult time researching what I was looking at in this time-lapse video shot across Ontario Highway 11 from an interpretive trail. Google maps thinks this area is Hardrock Mines or Macleod. It might be, but according to the Ontario government, this is the MacLeod-Cockshutt Gold Mine Head Frame, in Geraldton, Ontario.

MacLeod-Cockshutt Gold Mines Ltd, was incorporated in 1933, and in the spring of 1934, the company sank No. 1 shaft. In 1936 the company sank No. 2 shaft.

The MacLeod-Cockshutt gold mine started operations in 1938, with the first gold brick being poured on 19 May, 1938. The mine was operated or for 32 years, producing 180,576 ounces of gold before closing in July of 1970. 

Another small piece of Canada…

Carrie Lee – ex Mairi Fraoch

The fishing boat Carrie Lee in Margaretsville

The fishing boat Carrie Lee in Margaretsville

I has considered posting this as part of the series “A moment in time” as it has the elements that I like, such as the people fishing for mackerel. That makes this a photograph that captures a brief moment of life, rather than a documentary image of the fishing boat.
