Being on a boat, it's fascinating to see the water and sky transform so quickly from bright and serene to foggy and mysterious.
And back again.

When we actually moved here, we took our U Haul on the Anacordes ferry to Sydney, which is basically Victoria. I was the driver and had some nerves about getting a big truck onto and off of a ferry, but it was simple - all I had to do was follow directions. Arriving at our new home, this is the view that greeted us.

Since we got here we've done all the usual things you have to do when you move to a new country - get a bank account, apply for health care, get Canadian ID's - but we've also gotten some time to ride our bikes (our only mode of transportation besides our feet) around our neighborhood, walk on the beach and in the forest, and collect lots and lots of blackberries. It's been brilliantly sunny since we got here, and the rest of September looks to be similar. It's beautiful, but almost too bright, and I'm looking forward to autumn weather so I can wear wool more. You know what I'm talking about.
|Delicious blackberries - I love eating wild food|
In the meantime I'm working on designs for some magazines and for independent publishing. I've got a collection in collaboration with Malabrigo coming out next month. Stay tuned.
