Captain Calimari

Octopus Cove
British Columbia, Canada

In 2009 I took a two month expedition into every nook and cranny of the BC coast on Run-A-Muk.  It’s a 26’ jet boat and in it the ocean seems very very large I must tell you. 

During my explorations I came across this little cabin in the woods.  It was once a summer vacation spot for a family in the 70’s.  If you’ve been here you know what a wonderful summer place this actually is.  Since that time though the cabin has turned into a place where travellers leave mementos of their visit, their travels, their wanderings, their memories of those that are now gone.  Over the years this little out of the way place has grown into an awesome display of creativity.  So this year (2015) I was able to bring LeeAnna and Keelee (our youngest daughter) here to show them this cool place.  On this visit I had to memorialize it by taking this image. 

Last time I simply signed the ‘guest’ book(s).  Together we made a family staff, a memento, and left it behind.  Perhaps, years from now, another family member will visit and add to the collection.  The reality though, is that being here in person is so much more.

See Ya On the Trail!
