Tansy visits Tanu 2018

Navigating

Tansy helped navigate with GPS readings…

.

.

watch

…and kept watch on the starboard side of the schooner Passing Cloud

.

.

careful

…even in the fog!

.

.

aloft

First Mate Krista went aloft to check the electronics, and fittings…

.

.

Shadow

and cast a shadow in the mist.

.

.

Canoe Run

The fog had lifted by the time they reached Tanu. There was a nice smooth, tempting-looking place to bring the zodiac in, but they landed over to the side of the site, not up this historical canoe run.  Rules are in place so that modern visitors have the least amount of impact on the old cultural landscape, even inadvertently!

Octopus Trap

This is a good view of the octopus trap at Tanu – a pool of water created by building a shallow rock wall, with three rock piles where an octopus might hide as the tide goes out.

.

Walter

Walter and Sheldon were the watchmen at Tanu…

.

.

Roof Beams

…they explained about the old houses with their roof beams…

.

.

Post

and gable beam joints…

.

.

Gable Beam

…like this one…

.

.

plank

…and other pieces of the structures…

.

.

Carved Pole

…and about the way the mosses are slowly reclaiming the old villages.

.

.

Old Stories

Tansy listened to the old stories…

.

.

 

Wasco

…and she heard a new story about the Wasco, a transformer wolf that can become a Killer whale!

The Wasco bracelet was made by Sheldon’s brother.

  1. It is marvelous that we are able to join Tansy on this incredible journey into an area I assume I will never see. Wow, there’s so much to learn and become aware of. Thank you so much favorite photographer, Tansy and narrator for this wonderful and pleasant way of becoming informed of this unique area of the world and the watchmen/women who monitor it.

  2. Thank You Becky for relating my feelings to a tee.
    Each and every photo and explanation of what we are observing is beautiful, tender and sacred.
