Published Friday, November 14, 7: Looking like a blueprint, each depicted a drawing of the long sliver of land surrounded by names of ships that were wrecked on or near it. Hundreds of names of vessels swamped, smashed and sunk in the sand and shallow waters of Sable. Many dating back to the 16th century. For a kid, that poster was both creepy and compelling.

An oceanic climate also called "west coast marine climate" predominates in western Washington, and a much drier semi-arid climate prevails east of the Cascade Range. Major factors determining Washington's climate include the large semi-permanent high pressure and low pressure systems of the north Pacific Ocean, the continental air masses of North America, and the Olympic and Cascade mountains.
In the spring and summer, a high pressure anticyclone system dominates the north Pacific Ocean, causing air to spiral out in a clockwise fashion. For Washington this means prevailing winds from the northwest bring relatively cool air and a predictably dry season. Dryland farming caused a large dust storm in arid parts of eastern Washington on October 4, This causes Washington's prevailing winds, the Chinooks , to come from the southwest, bringing relatively warm and moist air masses and a predictably wet season.
The term " Pineapple Express " is used colloquially to describe the extreme form of the wet-season Chinook winds.

Using a penpals dating site such as PenPalsPlanet. To begin with, you are not thrown into the situation of having to contact people on the basis that you want to date them.

Rocky shores offer few shelters against winter storms, but a few protected bays welcomed aboriginal settlement and hosted clam beds whose long-lasting food bounty is attested by thick shell middens. Signs of settlement over 3, years old have been found in Montague Harbour. University of BC archaeologists have also excavated the remains of a 1, year old village near Porlier Pass, perhaps an early focus of salmon fishing and sea-lion hunting activities.
In the decades between the explorations of Dionisio Galiano and George Vancouver and the establishment of Fort Victoria , Galiano and the nearby Gulf Islands were part of the traditional territory of Hul'qumi'num speaking populations based on Kuper Island and in the Cowichan Valley. Enthusiastically embracing European religion and technology, but already decimated in the s by a small-pox epidemic, the First Nations tried in vain to resist the pressure of European settlement and, by the s had been forcibly dispossessed of their lands by military might.
Many of the early pioneers took Indian brides and pursued a life-style close to that of their aboriginal relatives, living off the bounty of land and sea, and thus providing some cultural continuity and links of kinship that survive to this day. In , Galiano Island acquired its modern name, bestowed upon it in honour of the Spanish navigator, by Royal Navy hydrographer Capt. A pioneer farming community was developing on the shores of Plumper Pass officially renamed Active Pass by Richards.
Galiano Islanders - remittance men, gold seekers, refugees from crowded countries - felled timber, fished Gulf Island waters, and farmed the valley bottoms for produce to sell to the growing cities of Victoria and Vancouver. Japanese settlers also came to live on Galiano Island in the late s. They were active in the fishery and operated salteries at the north end of the island until the late s. Traditional charcoal pits, dating from the s and typical of those used in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan, have recently been excavated at the south end of the island.
Water transportation has always been a topic of crucial interest to Galiano Islanders.
