Vessels

Steps

Steps

Tansy and her photographer spent most of the time traveling from the North end of the West side of Haida Gwaii to the South.  They traveled in a large vessel, and visited small coves and beaches on the way, by means of a smaller inflatable one.  Tansy enjoyed exploring both vessels, and learned to find her way around the decks and gangways…

  1. Rock a bye Tansy, in the sleeping bag
    When the boat rocks, Tansy will swing.
    When the boat rocks, Tansy will swing
    and she will get a good night’s sleep.

  2. What wonderful photos! Tansy has the BEST adventures! That is quite the rhythm for her hammock- I’m glad that her tummy is stalwart wood, as it would be distressing to be upset by the motion! Looking forward to more pics of her big adventure 🙂

  3. Stalwart Tansy! Yes indeed and another adjective might be intrepid. So enjoyed the narrative, the story and the photos. And of course that video swaying to and fro!

  4. Tansy’s adventures are nothing short of heroic for such a small person. I haven’t been to the Islands since I was a child, thanks for the wonderful memories. I’m green with envy, not the shipboard motion.

    • Her favourite photographer is a darling to invite her along, and to make such nice pictures of her while they are off in the wilds. I confess that I am a teeny bit green myself!

  5. I hope Tansy doesn’t get sea sick…looking at the video of her hammock rocking side to side, it will either lull her to sleep or have other more dire consequences! Looks like she had a good exploration of the boat, and there was lots to see and do.

    • Tansy has been called intrepid, heroic, stalwart, and adventurous – she all of those and is also very happy to crawl into her sleeping bag/hammock at the end of the day! Please mention it to the talented and delightful seamstress!
