ROMEO ARRIVING

My buddy was around tonight! I was so happy to see him flying out to greet me! He’s been gone for several weeks. He went to the salmon spawning grounds.

DEADMAN’S CRESCENT

This is Deadman island,its in Tofino’s harbour. The Natives would take their dead there and put them up in the trees. (Which was not a bad idea if they died of something contagious!) They believed it was Evil spirits that killed their loved ones and so wanted the evil spirits to be elsewhere!

They would put them in small Bentwood boxes. Many times the limbs would have to be broken to fit into these beautifully hand crafted wooden boxes.

The crescent moon adds a nice touch.
