Spring is a beautiful time on the BC coast and in Alert Bay the days are warming up with increasing hours of sunshine and spring bulbs continue to beautify our gardens with splashes of vibrant colour. Rufous humming birds can be seen and heard feeding amongst early flowering salmon berry bushes and the trilling of robins in the early hours of the morning is inspiring and a most welcomed sound. A humpback whale was sighted yesterday passing in front of Alert Bay, heading east and early this morning a glorious full moon could be seen in front of the Bay. In celebrating Earth Day yesterday, one cannot help but feel grateful for the beauty that surrounds us if we take the time to seek its source. The link below shows a stunning video clip taken in January 2013 of the rising of a full moon and silhouttes at Mount Victoria lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. It is absolutely beautiful to watch and listen to ~ enjoy! https://vimeo.com/58385453
