This summer Ron and I went on a big expedition. We explored the island we live on. Travelling on our sailboat we took a month to circumnavigate Vancouver Island.
We saw many beautiful sights including much wildlife: orcas, dolphins, sea lions, whales, sea otters, seals, bears, and birds - none of which I was able to capture adequately with my point 'n' shoot camera.
I got lots of knitting time in. I read most of the books I stowed on board.
I did lots of quick sketches to make me really see what I was looking at.
My sketchbook is full of inspiration and ideas for future works which will keep me busy in my studio over winter.
