A tanker sits at anchor in front of Gabriola Island on a March morning. Some don’t appreciate them here, sometimes there have been several waiting here to get into Vancouver. I don’t mind them. It adds some interest to the sea scape. We can hear and even feel them drop their anchors in the channel. There will be this deep rumbling / scrapping sound and sometimes a little boom when it hits the sea bed.
Bob though is a bit sensitive to the sound of their generators running, a low hum, especially at night.
Unfortunately I don’t hear it – or it doesn’t disturb me enough.
