Ok so this guy wasn't part of the evacuation/rescue, but he was kind enough to pose for me while I tested out my lense.
Now on to the main event. Wasn't quite close enough to see what they pulled out of the water, but it looked sort of like a dummy.
One of the rescue crews.
Another rescue crew.
And then zooming out of my picture.
As always I am distracted by the view. This is looking across the chanel at Vancouver.
A zodiac full of 'evacuees'.
Both of the participating zodiacs en route to the Newcastle dock.
At the Newcastle dock RCMP did a quick check to make sure everyone was accounted for, then Fire Fighters escorted the passengers to a park pavillion.
At the Pavillion passengers were again counted by members of the local Fire and Rescue.
Taking a breather.
