Regarding Suzanne's wish to view Texada Island and the Sunshine Coast area, she may want to try Big Wave Dave's webcams. There is a new camera at Columbia Beach that appears to face that direction.

As a yearly visitor of Qualicum Beach, can u please consider having another camera facing east (Texada and sunshine coast area). I love looking at these cameras daily and can not wait to get back there again. Consider a panoramic camera, that would be awesome.

First bit of snow along the Beaufort Range came on Thursday with a pounding surf on Friday. Made for spectacular walking along the seawall!

This is the spot where my sister and I took swimming lessons in the 50's, along with our friends, the Almonds. Betty Ware (later Parker) was the teacher I think. Later they moved the lessons farther along the beach.

Someone needs to check the thermometer at the wedcam. I usually check the webcam on a daily basis and it always says 12 degrees C.

Love the new webcam; it's wonderful!! But, can it be adjusted to refresh more reliably. Often there is a significant time lag between the image and the real time. For example, right now it is July 20, 2011 at 10:48 am but the image on the webcam is from July 19, 6:16pm.
