Sculpture-Saturday0310-Captain-Cook

~~~~~

Back in the late ’50s early ’60s…

…it seemed Captain James Cook was the

only historical mariner who ever

visited Australia.

Visits the Northern American west coast

were unheard of.

So it was somewhat of a surprise

to find a statue commemorating

his visit to British Columbia in 1770.

More of a surprise when I noticed that,

had it been a public event, I could have

attended the unveiling in July 1976

I wasn’t far away.

Camping in Canada’s

Rocky Mountains

in Alberta.
