Sitting in the rear seat in a MkI type Skytrain car in Vancouver, BC, I documented the journey. The change in light via tunnels and so on, created interesting reflections and a curious virtual ALRT trip. The tunnels sometimes remind me of Battlestar Galactica (the old TV show) set.
Beer Sampler at Skajit River Brewery, Mt. Vernon, WA
Enjoying some sample beers with Kris and Francis at Skajir River Brew Pub in Mt. Vernon, Washington en route to Gnomedex. We riff about various styles of beers (barleywine, stouts, porters, IPAs etc) and try to be pleasant.
The Mars Martian is the largest flying boat (or something along those lines). Usually stationed on Vancouver Island, the Martian can skim the water, filling her belly with water, then gain altitude to reach the fire zone and help to douse forest fires.
In this video clip, she doesn’t do the fire drill, but gives a nice slow, low pass over Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet while my pal Richard and I observe from the top floor of Gastown building while the Seabus goes about its business passing the heliport and the West Coast Express waits patiently in Gastown railyards.
From the roof of 1 Alexander in Vancouver’s Gastown, Richard Eriksson and i observe and riff about transportation methods and other sundry topics including: largest two-way Ferry, Mars Martian Flying Fire Boat, Seabus ($2/3 harbour cruise) with advice for Falafel and Suspension Bridge.
