Beautiful day.

It is unusually very little snow for Sakhalin this winter.

My friends took me for the drive to the seaside south of Nevelsk- for a picnic and photography, and they know I have not been in this coast since last century. We were not lucky with weather, but I still load some photos from this trip.

Ironically, just a few weeks before that I took these my friends to the Gold Coast when they were traveling in Australia. Well, this time it was a very different coast.

Very cold, but not frozen sea, because it is north of the Sea of Japan

Yes, it was cold!

Fast ice (also called landfast ice, and shore-fast ice) is sea ice that is "fastened" to the coastline.

It is Russia, but Japan is just 80km south.

Sakhalin, Russia.

 

Welcome back to to KD's World Tour using Google Street View. Our starting point over a year ago was on Antarctica (August 2015), and we’ve visited the Pitcairn Islands, Midway Island, Guam, North Mariana Islands, American Samoa, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, Hong Kong, and Japan.

 

From Japan, we virtually fly to Sakhalin, Russia. From there we'll follow the Transiberian Railway westward across all of Russia, ending in St. Petersburg... before the next leg of the journey.

 

Sakhalin is a country truly at the outskirts of Russia. While prototypically Russian in many ways, it is poorer, shows more signs of decay and depopulation, and seems a bit forgotten. It reminded me a bit of parts of desolate and abandoned west Texas, except much colder.

It was such a delight to be again on the snow, and skiing "off track".

Autumn on Sakhalin Island East coast.

My friend Mikul asked me:

What is the difference between rocks on Russian and American Paciific shore?

 

Russian Pacific rocks have "a distinct smell of oil and gas", buddy.

That's what makes Sakhalin Island so attractive for the $$$ of Houston oil-n-gas behemoths :-)

It was such a delight to be again on the snow, and skiing "off track".

Though something missing on the foreground for a perfect composition, I still like the shot; at the setting sun it was very beautiful light, and the photo takes me there again.

 

Маяк на мысе Слепиковского,

Description in English

 

Thanks to the warm currents in the Tatar Strait navigation between the mainland and Sakhalin is possible all year round. A railway ferry Vanino - Kholmsk is also operates here.

 

Описание на русском

 

Благодаря теплому течению судоходство в Татарском проливе между большей землей и Сахалином возможно круглый год. Здесь также функционирует железнодорожная переправа Ванино - Холмск.

Fast ice (also called land-fast ice, landfast ice, and shore-fast ice) is sea ice that is "fastened" to the coastline.

The ice is piled up by the sea surf. The unfrozen sea is a bit further.
