For the Art of it!

A few weeks ago we had the chance to visit a beautiful vacation rental condo in the heart of Victoria, B. C.   The decor has a West Coast theme and the condo was decorated with large canvases and prints of  images from our trips to Masset (see the blog posts HERE and HERE) and Ucluelet (HERE).  We really do live in a beautiful province!

The condo’s location couldn’t be better.  It’s just steps away from Victoria’s Inner Harbour and the Empress Hotel.  If you’re looking for a great place to stay next time you’re in Victoria we highly recommend it.  You can find out more HERE.

A love story

This love story begins here in the village of Masset in the northernmost point of the Queen Charlotte Islands, a place also known as Haida Gwaii.  This is a story about the forests, the ocean, it’s people and about finding love at the ends of the earth.  And here also is the spectacular setting where Blanche & Taze chose to begin their marriage.

One thing is obvious when you see Taze and Blanche together.  They are totally and madly in love.  Their ceremony was held in a forest grove by the ocean with a view of Tow Hill in the background.  The site was perfect, with a dugout canoe and an arch made of driftwood and decorated with cedar boughs made by Blanche’s uncles.  The family came together in the preparations; cooking, decorating and adding special touches. Sea shells lined the path as Blanche walked out of the forest with bare feet.
