In Ucluelet, BC. On the west coast of Vancouver Island. It was so amazingly beautiful! It's about a five hour drive and a ferry ride to get there. Jason meets up with family friends every year to fish for huge halibut and salmon. We stayed at the Terrace Beach Resort, which was like a tree house on stilts. They also have cabins, but we couldn't afford them this year. Funnily enough the resort is owned by Jason Priestley of 90210 fame, I didn't realize this until after we made the reservations, didn't run into him though!
The days that Jason was fishing I walked to the little town and found some neat things and people. I met this lovely lady who dyes and spins her own yarn. Its a sheeps hair that is very curly, it took me for ages to pick out the color I wanted and she kindly let me take a picture of her in her very interesting shop. It looked as though everything had washed up from the sea.
This is my view from while I knit and wait for the guys to come back to the dock.
The lady in the shop was kind enough to give me some odd knitting needles. I have since ripped the knitting apart and have started crocheting the yarn in long strips of color. I was loosing the texture of the yarn in the super tight knit. I want to also try and do some weaving and stitching experiments with it. I also found a kelly green leather trenchcoat in a second hand shop in town. It was a surprise since it's mostly a hiking, fishing, camping crowd. I was planning on getting a lot more projects done while on holiday, but I just ended up relaxing which I guess is what you're supposed to do :)
