Before starting work, the crew was greeted by Wišqii , who sang a welcome song.

Salal

There is a lot of coastal vegetation – and some of it is quite thick on the way down to the village site…

Oyster Shell Path

…but in amongst the houses the paths are clear and marked with oyster shells.

Tansy was happy to see her old friend Stella again…

  1. I hadn’t realized that a first Nation area could be reached without traveling on Passing Cloud. What a delightful surprise seeing Favorite Photographer and Tansy in this unspoiled and beautiful area. Praying that we humans can take notice of how to respect and care for our planet and the diversity of life on it.

  2. Yes, once again, me too, I want to say, all these amazing days, post, stories, photographs, art, should be a book. How precious… I can’t explain well, how much I love to be here in your world. Thank you, Have a nice weekend, Love, nia
