Fun quick trip to Seattle, but, can’t wait to get home to Galiano. Fishes to catch, plants that need me, and special peeps to see! (at Space Needle)

40+ canoes from all up and down the West Coast… Haida from the North up to Alaska and Chinook from the South down to Oregon… Have gathered here to sing, dance, feast, love and grow. I captained the support boat for the Squamish Nation. It took 3 weeks to paddle the 600 miles here from Vancouver. And now we party! :) #tribaljourneys  (at Bella Bella, British Columbia)

Tough day on the water for the canoes today but everyone is coming together tonight in the longhouse to sing and dance around a sacred fire and be thankful that all the humans made it through in one piece. Thank you Alert Bay for the warm welcome. Tomorrow it’s onward to Port Hardey #tribaljourneys  (at Alert Bay ~ Ya’lis)

Hangin’ out at the end of line. Due to rain and heavy win opposing the big current in the Johnstone Strait, we’re gonna hunker down for the day and wait to head out the 40+ nautical miles to Alert Bay tomorrow. I’m gonna read a book about lighthouse keepers, do some fishing if it clears up and sort things out on my boat. #tribaljourneys  (at Fisherboy Park - Sayward Valley Resort)
