the countown has begun...

it is now six hours until i get to enjoy nine days off from work...
and only three more sleeps until we leave
(bright and early)
for our wilderness adventure!

dante & i have been planning all the things we want to do
while in haida gwaii
(which is the actual name of the queen charlotte islands)
and here are some of the things we've come up with...

lots of reading
(i am bringing 5 books, including one on indian philosophy
and a huge text about yoga that my instructor lent me)

long walks through the forest

afternoon-long cribbage tournaments
(dante has beaten me almost every single time we've ever played,
and i'm hoping this week i'll have a comeback)

yoga on the beach
(how could i not?)

visiting the towns of masset and skidegate,
and checking out their historical buildings and structures.

we'll be putting the finishing touches on our plans this weekend,
and counting down the hours until we catch our flight...

i can't wait!

    Hi Meg,

    I stumbled across your blog & just wanted to comment on how beautiful it is. I live on Haida Gwaii - just outside of Masset on Tow Hill Road. I have been down in Queen Charlotte all this week with my work and staying a great place called Absence of Time (google it to see the view I have had all week). The sun has been shining all week and I hope it holds for your upcoming visit - it is beautiful on Haida Gwaii - especially when the sun shines! Hope you have a fantastic visit to the islands.
