Tansy visits the Gordon Islands 2018

Gordon Islands anchorage

After Tansy and the other guests visited S’Gaang Gwaii, the Passing Cloud anchored in the nearby Gordon Islands for the night.

Sunset

After dinner they toured around the islands in the zodiac to see the rocks and the sunset…

.

.

Gloaming

…before returning to the sailboat to sleep.

.

.

Dawn

Next morning they explored around on shore…

.

abalone

…and Tansy sat in an abalone shell. It would make a fine boat if it didn’t have so many siphon holes!

.

.

Feather

One of the guests gave her a wee feather…

.

.

Purple-hinged Scallop

…and she found some purple-hinged scallop shells!

.

.

Snails

Then Tansy scrambled up a rock, past a couple of turban snails…

.

.

clamber

…and a few plants…

.

.

lichen

…and some lichen…

.

.

Bonsai

…up to the top where she visited with some naturally bonsai-ed little trees. They talked in creaky twisty voices about wind and salt and dark and stormy winter nights.

.

.

rest

After a little rest amongst the cinquefoil, Tansy headed back down the rock…

.

.

Return

…to the zodiac, so she and the guests could return to Passing Cloud  to sail off to the next adventure.

  1. Tansy will be sooooooo Zen when she comes back home from such a peaceful quiet time in nature, she may have a hard time re-adapting!!! But she’ll have a mind and heart full of great memories…and so will we!!! Thanks for taking us along…this is my “escape” this year!

  2. Reading Tansy’s narratives as they arrive, is like going to a lovely library and finding a picture book (with dolls of course) and settling down to a really good story, learning adventure and pleasant time all wrapped in one very warm adventure…that has only taken a few clicks on the computer to get to….WEALTH. Thank you.

  3. Oh, I just this week chatted with a granddaughter about talking to trees! I am sure an explorer like Tansy can speak many dialects and join the conversation in a creaky twisty voice speaking about “wind and salt and dark and stormy winter nights.”
