September 1, 2014. Back at home and running errands - this view is of my garage as seen through the front windshield of my car (yes those are rain drops on the screen). I don't really like the garage; it wasn't well-constructed, and the roof is falling apart, and it gets bropken into so I can't really use it for storage.

August 30, 2014. We stopped by at Island Traditions Store - with the big basket out front - near Richmond on highway 2. The baskets, I discovered, are actually made out of white ash, and consequently are much nicer than I had expected.

Andrea Looking for Fish

August 29, 2014. Quiet day at the campsite. We walked up the coast to the creek, which was currently blocked by a sandbar, causing the fish in the stream to vacate and hide somewhere.

August 28, 2014. People have alwways built inuksuit at North Cape but this year they proliferated in the hundreds for some reason ('inuksuit' is the plural of 'inukshuk') Beyond you can see the famous kilometer long cap of North Cape, covered with seagulls, cormorants, and seals.

Oyster Creek Bridge

August 27, 2014. View from the bridge as I cycled 120km to Richmond and back. This would be at the 99km mark of my ride. It's one of my favorite sights on the island and I always look forward to it.

Port Elgin

August 26, 2014. Bridge in Port Elgin, a pretty little town we visited detouring around construction on our way into town to feed the cats. OK, it's not so pretty. But it could be!
