It was a Saturday, and the dragon-boat "Paddle-Fest" was happening. I don't think it actually rained too hard on that afternoon; must have been "more bark than bite" from those clouds.

- The development above Pipers Lagoon area forms a very lovely "U" shape, cut from the in-the-way trees and natural landscape. "U" stands for "ugly".....
- and a zoom-out for ugly context
- and there's something to be said for perfect lighting for a photograph. This shot was taken this morning at Jack Point park.
Beaufiful shots Flugel Horn !
Thanks Barrie. I think I may have captured your home in my highrise photo.

It is hard to take a photo of Waterfront Nanaimo without getting our building involved.
Keep on sending out photos. It will give us ideas of where to explore next. I am not sure on what the Ugly "U" area was, but I did drive up to the top of College Drive and I must say the views looking down into Nanaimo were spectacular.
Views from (and near to) the visiting vessel pier at the Nanaimo waterfront, around sunrise on Saturday Sept.10th.
Cameron Island condos, built on the site of the 2nd CPR steamship terminal.
View up the boat basin, with morning sun on the Coast Bastion Inn
View across the boat basin to the beautifully lit waterfront buildings.
Close up of the morning colours in the downtown buildings
- the City will like put the rain-jacket on the HBC Bastion in a couple of months (or less)
Great pictures! . . .
Thanks so very much!
