  1. Butternut Girl and Tansy are tromping troopers with the favorite photographer! How fortunate he is to have such courageous xylem and phloem alongside. Thank you all for sharing some northern adventure with us.

  2. I can never read or see enough of these visits to Haida Gwaii…they are always so interesting, tender and mixed with awe and fun.

  3. It looks like the girls have been having fun checking out the local flora. The photos bring back memories of a lovely visit to the Quimper Hittys’ yard. The berries on waffles look scrumptious. I am looking forward to more of their adventures.

  4. oh my all those different berries…the girls are such intrepid explorers. And they look so good doing it. Nice that Tansy has company (in addition to the favorite photographer of course) and speaking of the favorite photographer…he will have his hands full on this trip keeping up with these two!
