Have you ever fell so head over gumboots for a place that you want to keep returning? I feel that way about Vancouver, but recently I’ve also fallen for another rainy, tree and beach-fringed destination: Haida Gwaii.
Haida Gwaii is a brilliant, evergreen archipelago located in Northern British Columbia over 170 kilometres west of Prince Rupert. For the last two summers I’ve made the journey to Haida Gwaii to explore endless beaches, feast on seafood and poke around numerous art galleries and studios.
This summer there will be no such journey across Hecate Strait, however I have developed some coping mechanisms. To help navigate the waves of Haida Gwaii nostalgia, I’ve turned to scoping out the art of Haida Gwaii in Vancouver. Below you’ll find a list of spots I frequent when I’m missing the misty isles.
