Nest.

Nesting time.  A pair of Canada Geese has chosen an interesting site.  It's a turf-covered piling on the Middle Arm of the Fraser River, a few metres offshore, in plain view of a busy dike-top hiking & biking trail, and across the river from the Vancouver Airport seaplane terminal.


The piling is also a memorial. The leaping salmon fish at the top of the pole has "Fred' engraved on one side, and "Dad" on the other.  Simple, heartfelt,


And now expecting.

Aw, you're making me think of my own father, gone a year now. He was no fisherman, but he was both a dad and a Fred.

What a sweet memorial someone created, and what a funny and interesting nesting site... location, location, location.
