Spirit Bear travels the Salish Sea

  Honey Bear at home with us still, in the late day light. Her and her shadow.


Our recent epic road trip began on a late night ferry off of our home island of Gabriola.

We traveled up Vancouver Island and camped out on a rocky seashore. Went for a lovely warm swim at 7:30!!! a.m.....a time when I am not even usually awake when I am at home.

Then we headed for the fabulous Filberg Festival in Comox. It is definitely a cool (although it was HOT that day) outdoor, seaside venue filled with amazing ART! And live music. Super sweet and inspiring.

After that we went to the ferry that would take us across the Salish Sea to Powell River and the Sunshine Coast. BEEyoutiful ferry crossing. It was the 2nd of what would be 6 ferry crossings on our epic 3 day road trip.

We arrived further down the Sunshine Coast (sounds like a nice place hey? it is) to Honey Bear's NEW home!


She is now dwelling in a lush, exotic garden setting within a natural forest opening. So perfect for her.

She is in good company, with some familiar friends already there. Several garden fish, Mirabelle Whale glass sculpture (you may remember her from last year) and a Tyee Salmon sculpture all from my studio. Plus the bountiful garden flowers you see in these images.

It was easy to leave her in her new surroundings, with so much love and care.

So long my dear bear friend.
