I wanted to call this "The Map is Not the Territory" but it's too long and cumbersome. Bottom line is no matter how good a map you start out with, it will never tell you exactly what the day will bring. No substitute for the experience! This painting was inspired by a trip through Gwaii Haanas in Haida Gwaii, aka the Queen Charlotte Islands.... should be on every kayaker's bucket list. I've been twice and will die a happy paddler!
