    On my usual weekend jaunt out to the North Arm from Jericho, I rounded Pt. Grey and saw something strange offshore. "Gee, that looks like a yellow geodesic dome on pilings," I said to myself. Convinced that my eyes must be playing tricks on me, I paddled toward it and discovered...a yellow geodesic dome on pilings. Where none was last week. Strange.

    Turns out that NeptuneWAVE has been granted a license by the Province to test wave energy as a renewable resource. Here is their website:
