The Xwe’etay/Lasqueti Archaeology Project (XLAP) was back out on the water during the June 12-16 low-low tide, searching the intertidal for material evidence of Indigenous presence in the archaeological record.  Indigenous features such as fish traps and canoe skids can be seen at moderately low tides, whereas clam garden walls are only visible at low-low tide of ~0.7m.

A LASQUETI HERITAGE MOMENT
OUR QUEER SHEEP

 I’ve been interested in our local heritage sheep for many years. About 45 years ago I noticed two rams, one black and one white, who looked really healthy. They didn’t seem to take part in the seasonal ram and bump competitions.

SALE AT KIDS ISLAND CENTER

Dear Community, on Sunday July 31st from 1 to 3 I will have a sale of items from the former Kids Island Centre at the site across from the Teapot Lodge field.

I also want to celebrate the 27 years spent with the children and my true retirement (being 65....how did that happen?) After attempts to pass on my work at the Centre failed or use for other business opportunity the building will be for sale as well. Info can be obtained then.

Hopefully you will come visit, even if you don’t need anything, have some sweets and mingle. I will have some photos of former students and a bit of history. See you then! Gretje
