I herby name this new island Gull Island. It has been building for a decade from road sand dumped into BX Creek and carried into the lake at Canim Bay, but now some visionary soul has added rocks and a log.
So, this is better than China’s new islands in the South China Sea, which are just sand and military airstrips. This is one for the gulls. Let us take a moment in silence to honour the visionary who made solid what was just a gleam in a thousand gulls’ eyes.
Well done, everyone.
