Canoe Journey

Each summer, various Native American tribes in the Northwest embark on a lengthy canoe journey, gathering more and more canoes along the way as they head to their final destination of Neah Bay, Washington. Our niece, Teahonna, is from the Tlingit tribe and joined the journey this year, and one of the stops was right here in Port Townsend. We all waited on the bluff for the canoes to come in on the most gorgeous of sunny days. Even as I write this, we are still beaming with pride to know that Teahonna was part of something so special. She is a fabulous woman who is very committed to her heritage.
While waiting for the canoes to arrive, I discovered a basement window covered with lots of dead grass that somehow was incredibly reflective. Had a little photo shoot with Sojo and was fascinated by the results.
