This blog is a lifestyle/gardening/personal/nature blog based out of Ahousaht BC.

Marcie co-operates a whale watching/charter/tour company with her HUSBAND (How did it take me over a year to notice that and update it from “Fiance”? oops!), Lennie John.

Marcie grew up on a small farm on Vancouver Island. She spent summers camping at Pachena Bay and moved to Ahousaht in 2014. She works at Mermaid Tales Bookshop in Tofino, writes for the Westerly News, is a certified First Responder (volunteer) and hobby farmer.

Lennie and Marcie have many fur and feather “babies” – 3 dogs (Bruce, Leia and Yoda), a cat (Anakin), 2 bunnies (Rhapsody and Oreo), 12(!) Chickens, and an unidentified number of pond goldfish.

Those that know her well, understand that the is truly and uncurably, an orca-holic. For those not in the know, this means she is obsessed with orcas. Be prepared to be ignored if one makes a sudden appearance while you are in her presence.
