about the same length of time that the shaking was 

experienced in the 1964 Alaskan earthquake. This M9.2 

megathrust earthquake lasting four minutes and thirty-eight 

seconds. This magnitude 9.2 megathrust earthquake is also 

known as the Great Alaskan earthquake and Good Friday

In October, 1966, I (the author, Stan G. Webb) first moved to work as the Cost Accountant for the Northern Vancouver Island, Port Hardy Division of McMillan Bloedel Ltd. (MB), crews were still yarding (pulling) logs off the Hardy Bay (Quatse River) mudflats.  They had been pickup from the MB Port Hardy Division log dumping grounds by the Tsunami caused by the 1964 Alaskan Earthquake, and had been deposited 50 to 750 metres upstream, on those Hardy Bay (Quatse River) mudflats.

Most of you know that I am an author, photojournalist and educator. My first book was published in New York in 1982 and I have had hundreds of other professional articles published, as well.

You know that I delve into dark and deep places like the Cascadia Megaquake© which is past due and expected any day now, and Respiratory Illness© which I presently have. These things can all get quite depressing and I want you to know that I do keep them in balance with all of the beauty and light that is around us, always. So I also Breath Colour, Eat Colour, Feel Colour, Live Colour, See Colour, Smell Colour on my artistic photography website Stan G.Webb - In Retirement ©. I've even won some awards ie: Over Lynn Valley

Four of my other favorites are:

It was getting dark and I was hoping to catch some of the night pollinators: ants, bats, moths etc. and I did not want bright light to scare them away.
