Look what is travelling down the Georgia Strait -

Looking out yesterday afternoon, we saw these very local folks canoeing down the strait. Every year there are long boat / canoe races organized by local bands. Part of the excitement is not only watching this old mode of transportation being revived but also seeing the fabulously carved and painted canoes, usually carved out of one big tree trunk. Here is a close up from yesterday
Please hover your curser on the photo and enlarge it so you can see the carving and painting. It is spectacular!
