Into the green forest of Quadra Island! Tansy and her favourite photographer have gone off to do Archaeological work for a week.

  1. How wonderful that the Hitty’s photographer took Tansy on the dig. Tansy looks like she is really enjoying herself in those beautiful woods. The view from their cabin is stunning. I’m sure the two of them will have lots to tell you about when they return.

    • Tansy is a great explorer! She’s been all over the place with all kinds of people, but I think in her heart she likes going off with the photographer best! We always look forward to their return, and Tansy looks forward to a bath!

  2. Tansy is excellent company! Our week is now done, but there will be more adventures for her later this year.

    In answer to mycolourqueue on Quadra Island our accommodation is along the waterfront north of Heriot Bay, on the east side of Quadra, and our work site on this trip was further north along the east side near Village Bay. Next Quadra trip in a couple of months will see us in other places, probably quite a bit on the north end of Quadra near Kanish Bay and/or Waiatt Bay and probably some time in Open Bay close to the lab and accommodation. We are still in the planning stage for the next round.

    Tansy is also booked for a job to share her archaeological expertise on board a schooner in Haida Gwaii in July and expects to have a very good time, whatever the weather may provide.
