Day 23 Hornby Island

This was a relaxing day and started with Karen’s free range chicken sausages.

Next we went down to the harbor and looked at the boats. We visited the farmers’ market and the one room natural science museum. The museum uses one of the elementary school rooms in the summer. In the winter they have to store all the exhibits in a freezer so the insect/butterfly exhibits and stuffed animals aren’t eaten by bugs.

After lunch we visited one of Jed’s projects converting trees toppled by a severe winter storm 2 years ago into lumber. Jed has an excavator and a portable saw mill. We saw piles of beautiful cedar, fir, and balsam beams and boards. After that we were back at the house playing with the many animals.

Dinner was free range chicken cooked on a brand new grill that Jim and I took two hours to assemble.
