Travel Theme: Misty

Ailsa of “Where’s My Backpack?” likes to linger in the MIST this week. If you would like to join in with her challenge then please do. Everyone is welcome.

Thinking of misty times takes me back to my first visit to Canada in 2005 and more specifically to Vancouver Island. Way up north on Cormorant Island in the Queen Charlotte Strait lies the historical village of Alert Bay. Home of the ‘Namgis First Nation a former thriving fishing community and now a centre of Native art and culture as well as orca whale watching tours and fishing.

Although it was still August here the weather was distinctly autumnal with its “SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness!”

I now live back in the UK, but spent several years travelling the world and then living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. Hehe, not a morning person then?

          I saw your comment on Dina’s lovely Norway post and suggested to Jo (the restless one) than we should get together and go there as we all said the same thing!

    1. Thanks Tina. Strange isn’t it that on holiday you just get out there whatever the weather. At home I huddle indoors! I need to take the camera out more regardless of the weather.
