    I’m speechless! I know these images are a tiny representation of your Ireland trip but they are so very unique and moving. Never have I seen a ‘line’ so transcendent.

      I so look forward to seeing you on Gabriola Joan. I will always remember how you processed polaroid prints over a camp fire on a Bowron Lake canoe tour many many years ago. You were and are a creative genius! Chris

  4. My house, where I have lived for 30 plus years, looks out onto something similar. The view is never the same as the ocean currents change hourly. A couple of nights ago, there was a silver line coming out from Texada Island and extending half way to Harwood Island, then it petered out. I’ve seen it before, but slightly different. It’s always magical. Heather

  12. From the guy in the boat. Early morning and evening paddles alongside Doug Fir elders near Hope last weekend. Still amongst shoreside ice here. Cheers.

      If the guy in the boat was near Hope, how come he didn’t drop in to visit when passing through the Cariboo?? Great to hear from you Jim. Hoping all is well in Yukon. Chris
