A Stranded Buoy
by John MacFarlane 2016
A buoy stranded on the west coast of Vancouver Island. (Photo from the MacFarlane collection. )
This buoy was washed into a rocky cove on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It may be American in origin and was somehow removed. Its size gives an indication of the power of storm waves capable of lifting this huge object over the rocks behind which it is trapped.
