The Magic of Kayaks and Building Boats: Another Escape Magazine

“When I’m kayaking in Canada off Vancouver Island, I see a lot of sea otters – it is one of my favourite things. In the places where there are a lot of them, they do this amazing thing called a sea otter raft where they float on their backs and hold hands. Sometimes there are gigantic rafts of hundreds. It’s fantastic to see.”

In 2014, I spent a few days with photographer Elias Carlson, on assignment with Another Escape Magazine from England. We paddled kayaks in the waters off Seattle, hand-carved a paddle from driftwood on Olympic coast, and chatted about adventures around the sea. Today Another Escape released their new website and the full article is available along with Elias’ gorgeous photographs of our time together. It’s a peek into my life as a person who has taken the path less traveled in life, and whose life has revolved around the natural world.
