Wandering About on Shaw Island

In the past I think that I have mentioned that I had never been on neighboring Shaw Island before I took the workshop with Master Dyer Joan Morris . It was such a pleasure to take a couple of short sight-seeing detours during lunch breaks! Yes, my friend Janet did actually have to drag me away from the work at hand - and I am so glad that she did !
This is the Shaw Islandf Library (on top) and their Historical Socity (original cabin below). The library looks deceptively small from this photo but it continues to wind it's way through towards the back and, while still a small country library, looks like it is quite adequate. We are all very grateful to have Inter-Library Loan access here since it brings to world to us through our libraries!

This Reef Net Boat is right in front of the library - and there is a nice plaque that explains the history of the boat.
Ah! Here is the school house! Now this, to me, would have been a dream school. This building too looks deceptively small - but it winds around towards the back also. There is a lot more exploring I would like to do on Shaw Island one day - perhaps I will be lucky enough to have to return for another workshop with Joan Morris !
