5:50 p.m. A different angle.
Looking back from the north-western shores of Salt Spring Island toward Crofton and the mill on Vancouver Island.

In its private patch of morning sunshine, a tug towing wood-chip barges heads for the mill at Crofton on Vancouver Island.
On the BC Ferry pier at Crofton, heading back to Salt Spring Island
The big green Shamrock Fuels truck is coming off the ferry, having taken an earlier dangerous cargo ride over to Salt Spring.
The camera’s shutter speed was not fast enough to stop the motion of truck in the foreground, hence a blur that hints at the feeling you get as the pier shakes a bit as tons of truck parts noisily accelerate by a couple of feet away.
Meanwhile, looking back through the side mirror of my wee truck, we see someone paying at the toll booth. And there’s Rick of noofoto fame bringing his own kind of dangerous cargo back to Salt Spring (in his school bus) from a skating trip on Vancouver Island.
