Checkers

On our annual kayak trip up Sechelt Inlet in 2007 we got stuck for three days at a marine park due to high wind.  Our daughter created a checkerboard out of clam and mussel shells with coloured stones for markers.  Sometimes boredom is the Mother of Invention!

Keith’s Kitchen – 1971

...and most of his house.  My friend Keith lived in a small (approx 8' x 10')  hand built A-frame for a number of years in the early 1970's.  No water or power and just wood heat.  The fornt window, which you can see, was a sheet of clear poly.

Carmel, California – 1990

Canoeing at Point Lobos State Reserve. An entirely different perspective of the Monterey Bay, Carmel area. The park attendants register kayakers as they go through the gate, presumably to make sure that the same number come out as went in. They seemed hesitant to allow us to canoe but we managed to talk our way in. A great time with the otters and sea lions.
