Scanning the internet before a trip to the BC Sunshine Coast to tidy up a few details before I get down to finishing Emily Carr’s BC: The Mainland & Haida Gwaii,  I came upon Emily’s entry and sketch in the Burnett Family Summer Home guest book (held by the VAG). I wrote to ask if they had any more information since it relates to my trying to track down her time at Sechelt and Buccaneer Bay in 1908.
