Silva Bay From The Air
Here's the south end of Gabriola as seen from the shotgun seat of a de Havilland Beaver operated by Tofino Air. The first time I rode in one of these, I had a sort of baling-wire-and-duct-tape uneasiness but I've since been reassured by some folks who ought to know that despite it's age, the Beaver is considered to be the most reliable small plane in the northern skies. With that in mind, I enjoyed every minute of yesterday afternoon's crossing from Vancouver to Silva Bay. Trevor was at the helm and the flight couldn't been smoother.
