This painting, with the Wickaninnish Inn about to engulfed by a giant wave, is imagining the unimaginable that is within the realm of possibility, someday. Or is it any day? Standing on Chesterman Beach, we know it is within the tsunami warning area for the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a "megathrust" fault, which is a 1,000 Km long dipping fault that stretches from Northern Vancouver Island to Cape Mendocino California. We stand there in awe and we say silently to ourselves, not today, please not today..... But what a magnificent last view it would be!
