A little bit of history.

A little bit of history.

Kyuquot Sound is rich with history!  Once a booming little commercial fishing village, a lot has changed in the recent years.  Kristy’s family has been in Kyuquot for 5 generations and will be in a lot of these photos and videos.  Have a look at the site “A place of many winds” by Les Sharcott, who grew up in Kyuquot.  There are old photos, artwork (by his father) and a couple of great films… with more to come!

Here is a picture of “The Courageous” Kristy’s grandfather Esko’s first troller (that he built by hand in his boat shed in Kyuquot) In this picture the boat is turned into a seiner.   Esko built another troller a few years later.
