Amazing Cycle of Life of the Pacific Salmon1m30s

Amazing Cycle of Life of the Pacific Salmon

This footage was recorded in the city of Port Coquitlam British Columbia, a short drive from Vancouver. Hyde Creek is one of many streams where this amazing cycle of life is both started and finishes. The salmon choose the gravel beds within this creek to spawn ( lay their eggs) and the slow constant flow of water maintains the oxygen supply needed for the eggs to hatch into fry. The eggs which have been buried within the gravel, hatch in the spring time. Approximately 4 to 6 weeks ,depending on water temperature, after hatching the tiny fry emerge from under the gravel, which begins their battle of survival. The tiny fry have many predators and challenges over the next year or two before they as well return to their "home creek" to continue the "cycle of life" for future salmon stock. Vancouver British Columbia is just across the Canada -USA border in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to extensive government programs, Canada and the United States enjoy a large and vital volunteer force in salmon enhancement. Thousands of volunteers in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia- from school children to senior citizens- actively participate in more than one thousand public involvement projects and are a valued part of salmon enhancement efforts.Each year the commercial and recreational salmon fisheries are worth millions of dollars to the economies of both the United States and Canada. sustaining the salmon fisheries numbers is extremely important in many ways. The impact of the Pacific salmon fisheries can be seen in the thousands of jobs and many industries they support. A partial list of fishing-dependent businesses would include marina operations, fish processing plants, transportation, fuel sales, boat building and repair, retail fish sales, tackle manufacturers and distributors, hotels, restaurants and resorts. Enjoy this short video and the amazing cycle of life you are seeing . Brent and Elsa recorded this footage at times within a number of feet from the largest predator the salmon have, the bears. What an amazing sight.

Adorable lamb tries to steal woman's bracelet 48s

Adorable lamb tries to steal woman's bracelet

An afternoon visit to Aldor Acres family farm in Aldergrove British Columbia made for some pretty funny barnyard animal moments. This short video within one of the pens of some very young lambs shows the curiosity and personalities these little cuties possess . Mama sheep was hanging out at the back of the pen and keeping an eye on here little ones. Sheep are a very social animal. In a grazing situation, they need to see other sheep so keeping a few together makes for the least stressful situation imposed on the animals. Domestication has also favored the non-aggressive, docile nature of sheep, making it easier for people, especially women and children, to care for sheep. Sheep were one of the earliest animals to be domesticated, and they have been thoroughly domesticated. It is doubtful they could survive in the wild, if a predator risk existed. Sheep have extremely sensitive and excellent senses since they are prey animals. They have very good sight, smell and hearing to help them avoid becoming prey to an animal such as a cougar or mountain lion. The background of Aldor Acres farm is they began 26 years ago with the main crop being pumpkins. Owners Albert and Dorothy(AL-DOR) back then put a sign and a jar at the end of the road back in 1988 and started selling pumpkins on the honour system. Little did they know, it would become a hit. They soon began giving tractor-drawn hay rides to the pumpkin patch and providing an educational, hands-on farm experience for guests. October brings 20 acres of pumpkin patches and 5 acres of petting zoos and animal displays which was the attraction for Brent, Elsas and Sandy's visit this day. "What a fun afternoon at the farm" Elsa and Sandy said .

Sneaky bacon thief caught on camera!2m04s

Sneaky bacon thief caught on camera!

Poncho the rescue dog from Mexico is quite the sneaky dog. There have been a few times over the last number of years that food items have disappeared without a trace. One time for instance, Brent and Elsa were having a dinner party barbecue. Brent had the grill full of prime rib steaks, baked potatoes, and shrimp skewers, and while having to pop into the house for a moment, upon returning there was one steak missing and a dog named Poncho was having a feast on the grass.... Another time, Elsa had been preparing for a family dinner. Stuffed pork chops in the middle of being prepared and again, when Elsa had to leave the kitchen this time for a moment, she returned to find one pork chop missing from atop the kitchen island, and a very guilty looking Poncho, licking her lips. As in this video, it is hard to get angry at your family pet, and as Poncho was saved from certain death as a puppy left to die inside a plastic crate pushed into a bush along a path in Playa Del Carmen Mexico 10 years ago, her owners tend to make point this may be reason for some of her behaviors. So finally they captured Poncho the bacon thief red-pawed in this funny footage as well as catching her comical way of trying to hide behind Brent when he is "trying" to discipline her. Poncho is quite a smart pooch in many ways, one main way is looking so dang cute which always gets her off the hook for doing something wrong. Her owners know this will not be the last time she sneaks something from where she should not be, but what can you do other than love your pet no matter what they do. Positive or a little negative characteristic in your pet is never the end of the world so lets all LOVE OUR PETS as they are family too. Enjoy this video and feel free to share my Poncho's sneakiness with your friends.

Wild Black Bear teachers cubs how to fish2m36s

Wild Black Bear teachers cubs how to fish

Hyde Creek is located in the City of Port Coquitlam British Columbia. Port Coquitlam is in the outskirts of Vancouver British Columbia, approximately a short 30 minute, 18 mile, drive from Vancouver's city center and is nestled at the foot of Burke Mountain. Port Coquitlam sits at the confluence of the Fraser River and the Pitt River. During the early part of November, the coho and chum salmon return to Hyde Creek to spawn (lay eggs) in the gravel beds to carry on future salmon numbers. Salmon have a lifespan of three to eight years. Salmon are a kind of “super fish” that can live in both fresh water and salt water, and might travel hundreds or even thousands of miles over a lifetime! Salmon are born in fresh water and most live their adult lives in the ocean. Then they make an incredible upstream journey to spawn (lay eggs) in the same places that they were hatched. Here we see the struggles these salmon make in order to carry on their lives meaning, to create future salmon stocks. Along with battling challenges in the oceans and streams, they also battle to survive predators as you see in this video. In the end it is all part of Mother Nature.....SURVIVAL. We also see this mama Black Bear teaching her cubs to survive, in searching out their food and being able to catch it. This time of year, late fall, is when the bears begin to prepare for winter hibernation so eating well to build fat is extremely important to survive the winters cold when food is scarce. During hibernation they will use up this extra body fat to live off of while not losing any muscle. This allows the bear to come out of hibernation thinner and still as strong as it was before winter. This was an amazing event to watch this mama teaching her cubs the proper way to catch salmon and to see these animals in an uncontrolled environment. While recording this footage Brent and Elsa were within 30 feet of the adult bear at times. Mama did not seem at all disrupted with the human presence at this location, of which there were numerous. This is a very well known location to observe this incredible part of the animal world. Enjoy and please share this video!

Fearsome Crocodiles have a feast at Vidanta Resort Riviera Maya49s

Fearsome Crocodiles have a feast at Vidanta Resort Riviera Maya

Vidanta Resort Riviera Maya Mexico is a 5 star world class resort. Brent and Elsa are members and enjoy all the locations, but this trip was enjoyed by friends of theirs. The Crocodile sanctuary is a highlight of the resort, especially at feeding time, which only occurs twice a month. Being that the animals are not that active, the food they receive lasts them the time between meals. The sanctuary is a sufficient size for the number of animal in captivity, although of course, never like the wild. On this day, Brent;'s friend Shawn got the opportunity to take in the feeding and recorded this awesome footage since not many of us get the chance to actually witness these beautiful animals in person, which may be a good thing. The resort also houses a Pink Flamingo sanctuary. The Flamingos are gorgeous and very enjoyable to watch as well. Enjoy this video of the amazing animals in a setting second to none ,much like a zoo with the amazing jungle the resort has created. Thank you for enjoying this video. Please share .

Divers Find Dancing Eels in Cabo Pulmo Mexico

Elsa and Brent travelled to Cabo Pulmo Mexico to experience some of the best diving in the Sea of Cortez. The El Vencedor Wreck was one of many locations they dove ,which is where they came across these dancing Garden Eels as well as many more types of sea life. The location offered sights of stingrays, giant schools of Jacks, Leopard Groupers,Moray Eels, and much more. The town is barely 20 years old and is survived by the interest of divers and snorkelers alike. Dirt roads and solar power make this an extremely relaxing destination to stay. Long hailed as one of the most majestic diving destinations in the world, Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park is located on the pristine East Cape area of Mexico’s Baja California Sur within an easy day trip of bustling Cabo San Lucas. The breathtaking waters of the Sea of Cortez host a stunning variety of marine life – a fact that once prompted legendary oceanic explorer Jacques Cousteau to dub this body of water the “World’s Aquarium.” Surrounded by the striking desert landscape of Baja and a small fishing village, the brilliant blue waters of Cabo Pulmo are a magnificent contrast to the rugged landscape. At Cabo Pulmo, the astonishing biodiversity of the Sea of Cortez is magnified by the presence of one of North America’s few living coral reefs. The reef at Cabo Pulmo is estimated to be approximately 20,000 years old and features fingers of hard coral and sea fans surrounded by sandy seafloor. This fascinating habitat offers divers the unique opportunity to experience a wide variety of species in one easily accessible setting.

Watch this Nickelback SUPERFAN totally miss a great concert

Recently attending the final show of Nickelback's tour ,Brent notices this what he calls a SUPERFAN , missing an important part of a live show. Feeling that a very important part of a live show is seeing the artists perform, Brent was a bit surprised that this woman spent almost her complete time during the show playing a game on her phone. While almost the whole stadium was on their feet rocking it out to the performance ,this fan sat until minutes before packing away her phone and exiting the show, which was far from over. Maybe her ticket was FREE.... All in all it was a great performance by this band ,from Vancouver British Columbia, which was the location of the last show. Great work Chad and guys... keep up the great music.

Divers explore Kittiwake shipwreck on Grand Cayman Island2m05s

Divers explore Kittiwake shipwreck on Grand Cayman Island

While Brent and Elsa were vacationing on Grand Cayman Island, being divers they chose to dive the ship wreck Kittiwake. Below is some information about this incredible ship which now makes a great dive sight and artificial reef. On January 5th 2011, the Kittiwake (an ex USA Navy Vessel) was brought to the Cayman Islands and sunk to make an artificial reef off Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach. When in active duty, the Kittiwake was a submarine rescue vessel. The Kittiwake was in service from 1945 to 1994, serving more than 50 years. After she was retired from duty in 1994 the Caymans Islands Government purchased her to make an artificial reef. In preparation for sinking the Kittiwake was cleaned of all chemicals and oils to insure that no pollutants could harm the nearby coral reefs, and had most of her internal fixtures removed to make the vessel as diver friendly as possible. The Kittiwake is a large vessel measuring 251 feet long, hosting 5 decks, and weighing 2200 tons. She sits in ~60 feet of water. Open water divers can swim the first three decks, and advanced divers can swim through all five decks. Some highlights of the dive include two recompression champers, which served the divers who got decompression sickness on the Kittiwake, the bathroom which still has mirrors so you can see yourself, and the mess hall which still has tables and chairs. Most of the Kittiwake’s missions are still classified to this day, however a quick search online gets plenty of hits to some of her adventures. Most notably in 1986 the Kittiwake recovered the Blackbox from the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster. The Blackbox was recovered from the Atlantic Ocean. Today the Kittiwake lays in a marine park serving as an artificial reef. Divers and snorkelers are not allowed to take or touch anything in the marine park. To dive or snorkel the Kittiwake, you must go on a licenced vessel.

Guy feeding large Iguana not as brave as he thought he was 1m19s

Guy feeding large Iguana not as brave as he thought he was

This little town just an hour North of Puerto Vallarta,Mexico, called Sayulita, is pretty much a surfer type town. Fairly secluded, with gorgeous beaches and crystal clear waters, it attracts many tourists. Both for beach activities and shopping. Of course being that Brent isn't the shopper type, he is always looking for local wildlife to check out. Finding this tree full of Iguana, he figured "why not see if one of them would like this tasty flower?" So after picking a close by flower, one large creature definitely was interested. As you can see , Brent was a little reluctant staying perfectly still waiting for Mr. Big to take the flower from his hand. Brent wife, as you can hear, tells him to be careful , but of course he knows best. After a few twitchy offerings , the Iguana was able to get a bite, both of the flower and the tip of Brents finger. No blood was shed and no animals were injured in the recording of this video. Brent wasn't as brave as he thought he was . ;-) Feel free to share this video if you enjoyed it. Thank you

Aircraft uses lake to battle raging forest fires1m50s

Aircraft uses lake to battle raging forest fires

Steve recorded this footage from his lakefront home in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. With the nearby forests on fire, the water bombers were continually making passes in front of his home to fight the nearby fires. After a while Steve noticed a boater getting dangerously close to the flight/pickup path for the bombers and continued to record in case of an incident. The boater, as you will see, definitely was not thinking clearly as to his safety and the safety of his passengers, never mind the safety of the skilled pilots working tirelessly to fight the blazes. There were more than 2,500 residents evacuated locally as the fires came dangerously close to residential neighborhoods. Thankfully there was no incident on the water this day, and the fires were extinguished after a number of days. Thanks to all the hardworking firefighters in the air and on the ground, they conquered yet another bad round of forest fires in Kelowna.

This had been going on for at least 10 minutes prior to this footage ,so Lucy definitely seems to enjoy the rock game. While talking with her owner, i was also noted that Lucy also surfs with her owner. Now that would have been great to see. If you love doggies and enjoyed this short video, please share it along.

Little Boy Fools Grandpa at the Pool1m13s

Little Boy Fools Grandpa at the Pool

This little guy sure knows how to play grandpa. While at the pool the cameraman watched this little guy playing with grandpa for quite some time. Grandpa was trying to get him to jump into the pool so he could take him over to the nearby waterfall and slide in the middle of the pool. But every time his grandson got to the pool's edge, after "uno, dos,tres" the little guy would give a bit of a smirk, and not jump in. After a bit, the little guy got a snarly look on his face and walked back to the pool side lounge chair and teased grandpa some more. What a little actor he was, too fun.
