Last summer, back in the days when I was volunteering to self-isolate, I was out at a lake cabin and happened to see a wildfire gets its start from lightning.
The following day, a pair of water scoopers showed up at the lake. They would fly overhead, bank around the lake, skim across the top of the lake, picking up their load of water, then take off again to fly back to the fire. The two aircraft made the roundtrip from fire to lake to fire, all day long.

Hi, I’m new to your site and I just wanted to know have you watched the movie ‘the Proposal’? the story revolves around Alaska and I just want to know is that place really alaska? I was going through some of your posts and you take some really lovely pictures of your place. They all look beautiful.
I’m sorry this is so random that I pop up like this xD

Thanks for stopping by. I’m sorry to say I have not seen the film “The Proposal”, but I’m glad you like some of my photos.

I flew with a seaplane in Vancouver and it was awesome. https://tripbytrip.org/2018/06/21/video-taking-a-seaplane-from-vancouver-to-victoria-in-british-columbia/

They are quite the experience. I imagine the ferry ride back was uneventful after the seaplane ride.

Quite, but it was nice as well 🙂
