Village of Queen Charlotte

Road to the Village

Road to the Village

With the plane landing in Masset Tansy’s Haida Gwaii trip continued south on the main road by car through the lovely green forest all the way to the village of Queen Charlotte.

Hitty House

Hitty House

Tansy was pleased to find there is accommodation for small people on the Islands.  This little house was near Queen B’s cafe, but after a long day’s travel, Tansy was in a hurry to get dinner, and didn’t stop. In any case, she had a shared room organised in a nearby hotel.

A lovely flowering honeysuckle was in Queen B’s garden…

…but Tansy was more interested in the yummy pizza at Howler’s.

Gathering more supplies, Tansy spotted this little dory in the hardware store, but it wasn’t for sale.

Hand Level Practice

Tansy had an entire bed to herself in the motel, and she and her photographer spent the evening practicing with the hand level!

  1. My, my, young Tansy had a full day! Plane, car, dory….she tried them all!!! The place is quite a distance from the cupboard!!!!! Our Hitty Charlotte was very impressed that there was a Queen named Charlotte. Recently she had been thrilled to know That the new little princess was to bear the same name she does….and now, a queen! Hope this doesn’t get to her head!

    • Back at home now, Tansy is having to adjust to life in the bustling Hitty cupboard again. It is quite different here with the traffic and crowds, and timetables dependent on clocks instead of tides!

      Hitty Charlotte has a beautiful name, just like the new princess!

    • Oh my goodness! what a marvellous little village…there are a few British Hitty friends, I wonder if they’ve heard of Bourton-on-the-Water? I shall be letting them know about it!

  2. What a great day Tansy had, and that pizza looks delicious, no wonder she was eager to eat it! I just love her wonderful coat – is just perfect for the intrepid archaeologist

  3. Glad to hear that Tansy is safely home from her adventure. Loved the pic of her with the small house.. and I want to thank Ushashi for the link to that totally marvelous little village in England. The Country Hittys are now demanding their own village!

    • Yes, isn’t it marvellous! The Quimper Hittys are quick to point out the little houses we’ve seen in Iceland too, and the log cabin we recently saw in the Comox Valley. They ruminate about the lack of formal housing around here, but are generally content with their Hitty Cupboard!

  4. I see that Tansy is carrying her trowel everywhere. How nice to see color in your photos. Tansy will have to bring those visuals back to the cupboard for all there to enjoy as you continue with the sepia-ness in your home clime.

  5. Does Tansy’s Favorite Photographer take his own vehicle on his travels or is there one that he can borrow? How awesome that there is a Hitty-like house in the village…. I wonder if there are any Hitty cousins around and about.
    I love her travel tales.
