Good Monday Everyone -
 
The image this week shows a trade that has been plied on the south-west coast of B.C (aka Pacific Northwest) since the opening of the forest industry in the mid 19th Century - log salvage (water and beachcombing).  This is not to be confused with "salvage logging" practice within the forest.  Here are two articles you may find interesting as background to the business.  The Beachcombers (BC Business Mag, July 1, 2013)  and Why Beachcombers are tired of fighting (Globe and Mail, Dec 20, 2008, updated April 27, 2018)
 
Braving a cold, late fall morning on the North Arm of the Fraser River heading west to the mouth and the Strait of Georgia and its forest shores. HERE
 
Have a good week,
Cheers, Tom
