Before our 24-26km paddle around Swale Island I took a look in this little craft shop at the edge of the cove in Happy Adventure that was to be our put-in site. The culture in these small communities is evident the moment you enter there. The people are friendly and downright hospitable. The items in this shop were all made at least to some degree from materials harvested from the ocean from around the shores of Happy Adventure. The inspiration for the works is clear but the uniqueness and the originality of the crafts are both amazing and humorous. The fun and dedication to detail in the works was apparent upon entering.
