For the last almost six months it has said "Happy New Year". Well, today I looked out the window and it said this:
Was on the city's website and found a camera at the construction site. Very neat. (Mod edit: Link broken, removed)
Don't know if anyone else noticed that the Nanaimo satelite photos were updated on June 2 on Google Earth.
So new, the Inland (Island?) Kenworth building is there on Northfield -
But so old, the Civic Arena is still there. (although the carpenter union building? beside it is gone).
We ended up going... It was fun. The amount of information was staggering.
**The 'ocean scene' was at the beginning of the tour and the guide explained what all the fish were, they had brought in basically what you would see here in the water, and not too deep down... There was (excuse spelling...

If anyone has any, I'd love to see pictures of what Long Lake looks like today.
Over in my intro on the business forum, it was suggested I post some shots of Nanaimo I've taken, so here's a recent one I took which made the front page of the Daily News. I'm a director of the Nanaimo Astronomy Society and we are looking at having Westwood Lake a designated International Dark...
Four photos taken around town.
1) Looking onto the Great National Land building from the second floor of 223 Commercial Street, once home of the Nanaimo Daily Free Press.

OK, time for a thread that's for elsewhere on the Island(s)... This should make the "where in" guessing game a bit more interesting. Here's one to get things started.
I took a walk through Bowen park on Jan 11, 2010. The day was overcast, but I decided to take some pictures anyway. The Millstone river was the highest I've ever seen it.
Here is the water nearly up to the lower bridge:
We had 18 people out to view the Perseids meteor shower at the Nanaimo Astronomy club's dark site. on August 12 .
Many of our members also had telescopes set up so we were able to give the newcomers some great view of deep sky objects as well as Jupiter.
Here are a couple of pictures I took...
Love Neck Point and was trying out a new camera (Canon SX 50 Superzoom) and managed to get this shot.
Didn't really see a category for night time photos so I thought I would start one. Here is one I took of the moon the other night.
Went by the Classic Car show at Montana's today and took a few pics. The bright sunlight made it tough to get good exposures, but I decided to just go with it and use the reflections to make the pictures more interesting.
Canon SX 50 for both shots.
There are some pictures of Piper's Lagoon floating around here somewhere - but here is a thread especially for them!
