Did this sketch while waiting for the arrival of the BC Ferries’ ferry ride to Thetis Island. It was cold and sea spray was blowing on me and a bit on my sketch as you can see it. This is a small docking area in Chemainus for boats and yacht. I love the harbour life, so much different than being in the Gambling Wasteland. I am really considering moving to the Pacific Northwest in the future. There is so much life up there that feel more like home to me, I am used to the green environment (born and raise in Florida) and the fresh air.

A “BC Ferries” ferry ride to Kuper and Thetis Islands ticket booth.
This is where I pay for my ferry ride to the Kuper Island (Home of the Penelakut Indian tribe) and Thetis Island from Chemainus, Vancouver Island.
One of the huge perk about the Pacific Northwest is the freshest seafood. That was one thing I missed so much about when I have relocated in the middle of the desert from Florida with lack of fresh and cheaper seafood!
On Vancouver Island’s best specialty is the good ole Fish n’ Chips, hence the name of the providence: British Columbia. Anyway, you can see an Inukshuk beside the image of my delicious Battered Halibut, Coleslaw, and French Fries with gravy (a Canadian thing). Drew an Inukshuk from a photo beside where I was sitting while waiting for my food.
What’s an Inukshuk?
Its a First Nations thing, you will see the rock sculpture almost everywhere in Canada. The word inuksuk means “something which acts for or performs the function of a person.” The inuksuk may have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for hunting grounds, or as a food cache. The Inupiat in northern Alaska used inuksuit to assist in the herding of caribou into contained areas for slaughter. Inuksuit vary in shape and size, with deep roots in the Inuit culture.
Kin Beach Park – Chemainus, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
A sketch of a local beach near the town of Chemainus. It is a beautiful beach during a low tide, you can see the mountains and the greens along with the boats docking in the middle of the water. It was a relaxing place to be, right after this half finished sketch.. I fell asleep right on the breakwater.
