Feast

There was a fabulous feast on the last evening, madeby Roberta (Juuskaahlii), including Kaaw,  frybread, smoked salmon, dried seaweed.

Steamed Herring Roe on Kelp

She got cosy with the Kaaw because she loves the way the roe explodes in her mouth so hogged big piece to herself…

Dreaming

It was so beautiful in Haida Gwaii, and Tansy feels lucky to have been there even briefly. Visiting the peaceful spaces, eating good food and spending time with good friends fills her with joy…hope she can go back soon!

  1. I would assume Tansy and FP are feeling very satisfied after this excursion. Again, thanks to all for letting us peek into one some of this adventure.

    • We are feeling very satisfied indeed! Tansy is especially pleased with the “lithic” (aka stone tool) that is 10,700 years old! And other finds that were from 4 to 8,000 years old. She has archaeology flowing in her deepest phloem.

  2. Tansy and Favorite Photographer always thrill me when they share their trips with us. I too was facinated with the lithic stone. I loved the shapes on it and the wee little snails? The peaceful area is soooooo soothing. Tansy is so accomplished.

    • The shapes on the lithic (and the material) are how you can tell it was a deliberately made stone tool and not just a randomly chipped rock! I love it when Tansy and F.P. share their trips too!

    • It is pretty wonderful isn’t it?! Something about the morning light there, and echoes of the sounds of the birds and water, boats, the feeling of the air, the smell…the rare times I could accompany them have been pretty special, but the photos do bring back those beautiful echoes.
