Yesterday dawned clear, sunny, and hot, which means action adventure day for the Scooterpie clan. After a hearty breakfast off we went to Jamie's Whaling Station and Paddles West for a kayak adventure.
It was a perfect paddling day, no wind, no waves and it was warm.
Opitsat village home of the Tla-o-qui-hat First Nation. The village has a long deep history and it's heritage is being renewed by First Nations people who are teaching the young their history and their language . Meares Island has the distinction of having an untouched pristine old growth rain forrest. I thank those who allow us to paddle in and walk on their ancestral territory.
This is Strawberry Island and it has a funky little floating home community - made me homesick for my old home.
