Christmas stars & rain

Just in time for Christmas, a Christmas Stars Gallery! There’s a stunning range of starfish below the water off the West Coast of BC. Here’s a sampling of photos by Bernard P. Hanby, courtesy of The Tyee.

For a sense of the feeling of a West Coast Christmas, or not, do read this beautiful post by Chris Corrigan, who lives on an island just beyond Vancouver. As a northerner and a prairie girl, I can identify with what he so eloquently says, much better than I could. Only by turning inward to focus on the lights, food, family and nostalgia do I still manage to capture the Christmas feeling.

Here’s hoping you have captured the Christmas spirit! Merry Christmas everyone!
