For the Love of Crows By Sheila T

I had never paid much attention to crows. I thought they were just noisy, obnoxious pests. At least, that’s how I saw them when I lived back in Ontario. But then we moved to “Supernatural” British Columbia in 2012, and a couple things changed my mind about these black rascals.

It was low tide and we were strolling along the beach out in front of the 486-ton white rock looking for interesting stones and shells. Although I heard no sound other than the light lapping of waves, I started to get an odd sense – as if we were being followed.

I stopped suddenly, turned around and saw one lone crow following in my footsteps as I picked up and discarded unwanted stones. My sudden stop and about-face caused this crow to stop suddenly as well, and he seemed to look around as if to ask, “What’s wrong – is someone following us?” It was a comical moment and I began to wonder if there was more to crows than I’d previously noticed.

Shortly after that day, we noticed a particular crow near our own home. He had a broken beak but it never seemed to prevent him from hunting for food and having success. We named him “Brokebeak” and began throwing a few peanuts out for him and a couple of his pals.

About this time, we also embarked on an intensive walking program to both lose weight and get in better shape. Our walks would usually take us from our East Beach location heading west along the White Rock Beach promenade, all the way uphill on Oxford Street, then east on 16 Avenue into town where we would stop sometimes for a cold drink before continuing the trek back home.

What we noticed when we reached the alley leading to our home – and with still about one kilometre to go – was the sudden appearance of our new friends. I commented that they seemed to recognize us. Ric threw them some peanuts that he had in his pocket and they dove for them.

Yes, they had recognized us as we’ve since learned. They can recognize faces and they know people who are kind to crows and those who aren’t. While they can be both thieves and pranksters (more on that to follow), they also demonstrate a lot of intelligence.

They tend to follow us some distance when we go for walks – even as far as the White Rock pier or farther. Often Ric has gone out among the tidal pools at low tide with his tripod and camera, and our feathered friends will show up, patiently waiting for treats to follow after he takes his pictures.

Our crow pals also seem to watch the house, and when they spot our car pulling out, they swoop in and fly along beside the car to get our attention. They’ll often fly along side until they get their peanut rations. And they also watch for us to return home. But we have one rule: if they’re noisy, they get no reward. Only quiet birds get treats.

We don’t expect everyone to share our love of crows, but there’s no denying their intelligence and cleverness. While that might not encourage affection, it should at least afford them a bit of respect.

The NEW and IMPROVED White Rock Beach Gallery

mr-whiterock-620White Rock Beach Gallery founder ARTographer Ric Wallace shares some photos of how his galleries have evolved since spring 2015.wr-gallery-waterfrontThis was an early setup of the Now Famous White Rock Beach Gallery 2015. I had never set up one of these tents before. Things learned since then, dealing with wind from the ocean and trains. Noise of the trains, I NOW bring hearing protection. The above display stands are not practical for waterfront display use. The above setup has only one 24″ x 48″ table.

WRBG-01

The above setup summer of 2016, FIVE – 24″ x 48″ tables are used, with rubber top mats to stop things from being blown away. Tables are leveled using customized hockey pucks and wood spacers. Custom-made postcard and greeting card pockets are mounted to tables and the poles of the tent. The tent was modified to allow it to support horizontal poles on the back and left side. Sixty pounds of ankle weights on the front poles help stabilize the tent in windy conditions. On display are postcards, greeting cards, magnets, 6″ x 8″ and 8″ x 10″ prints, 16″ x 20″ canvas prints, 20″ x 28″ acrylic prints, framed prints and magnets. Magnet boards are placed on the table to help create a wall of products. Many of the products are also online for sale on WhiteRockBeach.ca.

ASK NOT what White Rock can do for YOU, but what you can do for WHITE ROCK!

City of White Rock elected officials should LOVE this AMAZING STATEMENT.
ASK NOT what White Rock can do for YOU, but what you can do for WHITE ROCK!

Long Story Short


We want people and businesses to flood social media with photos of all the AMAZING things White Rock & area has to offer or can be found here using the hashtag #amazingwhiterock. We encourage businesses to reward people for posting photos and comments to social media of what they feel is AMAZING. If lots of businesses get on board – one really COOL SNAP SHOT on Twitter and/or Instagram and Facebook, etc, you could get many rewards from a variety of businesses (potential rewards – coffee, gift, discount, service). AMAZING White Rock will be offering many other ideas to help support the White Rock business community.  Ric Wallace has some other ideas he is willing to share with local businesses – like his Amazing White Rock Wall Art idea – on how they can boost their IMAGE and that of White Rock, in turn, attracting more customers. Long story below.


If you LOVE White Rock and are a PHOTO SNAPPER (professional photographers included) or SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKIE and do not have a business (business owners who are not AMAZING White Rock Business Partners are also welcome to become just friends), but like to take photos and have a smart phone or tablet with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or other social media, you can help by using the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.

For example: If your photo shows up on Instagram –   Twitter – or Facebook and they like what you posted – you could WIN. Any business could offer this even without being connected to us (without paying or owing us – FREE IDEA). As long as the photos are taken in White Rock and your posting has the hashtag #amazingwhiterock, feel free to post pics of sunrises, sunsets, the pier, the FAMOUS WHITE ROCK, your dog walking on the sidewalk, selfies with your friends, food & drink, classic cars on Marine Drive, etc. If your photos impress a local business, they could direct message you to offer you a reward (this is up to them, not to us).

A site to promote the AMAZING THINGS about White Rock & Area, British Columbia to the WORLD. YES we do have things to BRAG about, and with a visit to White Rock you will see FIRST HAND why. WARNING: You may want to stay and not go home (this happened to Ric Wallace – he never left).

The idea for the site came from being an Artist Walk ARTographer (The White Rock Beach Gallery) where Ric Wallace was and is  MARKETING* (not selling) his postcards, greeting cards, photo prints, magnets, canvas prints, acrylic prints to local residents and tourists. The most used word by visitors was AMAZING. You have AMAZING postcards, AMAZING greeting cards, AMAZING photos, AMAZING weather, AMAZING  sunsetsAMAZING  sunrisesetc.

People think it was AMAZING Ric Wallace was able to register the domain WhiteRockBeach.ca for $10,45 and it was not taken already. And the list goes on and on.

Listening to the visitors coming to White Rock Beach has inspired many of the 101+ White Rock Beach postcards & other products. Simply asking people where they come from has helped Ric learn from people’s first-hand experiences what they buy or are attracted to – by age, gender, nationality, country, etc. Ric Wallace has valuable marketing information not available to others. Also, by being a GOODWILL Ambassador for White Rock at the waterfront helps us collect valuable information; we do not get this information from the many stores that sell our products – just what has sold.

 

Ric Wallace has even walked all the streets in White Rock & South Surrey and has even taken the title Mr White Rock & the Postcard King– LOL.

AMAZING Sunsets, AMAZING Sunrises, AMAZING Food, AMAZING Ice Cream (see below), AMAZING Accommodations, AMAZING Weather, AMAZING Artists, AMAZING Postcards, AMAZING Greeting Cards, AMAZING Shops, AMAZING Services, an AMAZING Place to LIVE or VISIT. We are the ONLY city in Canada to have a Lucky Coin® – A local White Rock resident holds the Canadian Trademark. The movie Best of Luck had scenes filmed at the AMAZING White Rock Pier. White Rock is an AMAZING filming location. YES, if you had to use one word to describe White Rock – AMAZING would be it.

The visitors to The White Rock Beach Gallery coined the phrase AMAZING.
Ric Wallace (AKA Mr White Rock) was apparently the only one listening. He registered the domain AmazingWhiteRock.com and created the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.
He also registered WhiteRockBeach.ca and a few others.
