I had the occasion to paddle a canoe from Prince Rupert to Kitkatla one Summer, following a route that was used by my ancestors many times.

I left the harbour at the wrong time, and had to face adverse tides at the mouth of the Skeena River and down the channel to the village. I wished at the time that I could have learned something of the seamanship of my ancestors prior to the voyage.
In time - about seventeen hours - my friend and I finally arrived at the village just at sunset. It was this memory that inspired Westcoast Sunset.
