Yesterday I left work looked back toward the office and look what was in the sky.....

It looked like it was a full rainbow but with the trees in the way it was hard to tell. I guess that's one cool thing about the rain we get to see rainbows.

Zeballos trip

Okay our cars do get very dirty when we travel. You can't tell very well by the photo but it does.Below is the new band office at Oclucji.

Campbell River

We were going to leave Campbell River at 8 am to drive to Zeballos so we stayed the night there. We were given rooms on the 6th floor over looking the harbour. I watched the ferry come in and out and in and out. I guess just across the bay.


Well summer was short..... Way to short.
It is definitely fall now. It has done nothing but rain here for days if not heading into weeks. I did get up and go for a walk today even though it was pouring out. The last few nights I swear there has been thunder but I don't recall seeing the lighting. But this morning I did see lighting.

Okay I guess summer finally decided to make an appearance this year. It has not been as hot as it has been the last few summers but still hot enough to go jump in the lakes. I have not gone to the river yet as the river is most likely to COLD but the lake has been warm. I actually got a bit of a burn on the weekend and I was only at the lake a few hours and yes in the water for most of that. I hope this weather lasts.

Big House

I better get these pictures posted before we loose Internet again its been off all day. We finally had the opportunity to look inside the building. It seems smaller that what I expected for a big house in terms of floor space.
The above photo is of an outside wall where it meets the roof. Another basically tree is used as a beam.

Above is looking at where the front door will be looks like a cool archway.
Below ? storage.

Below more of the main beam and its support beams.

Standing near the front door looking down the the length of the big house.

I want to see what it will look like when it is all finished. It is supposed to hold 500 people, and still have room for the dancers. We will see.
