  • Welcome to my blog! I am an artist, visual story-teller, and adventurous photographer, based in Tofino and Ucluelet, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I am passionate about traveling, exploring new places, learning new things and inspiring those around me to live their dreams. This blog is a window into my work, my travels, my inspiration, and my love for all things creative.

Happy Father’s Day

As I mentioned in my Mother’s Day post, my parents are travellers. My dad is a sailor. I grew up on the ocean with him at the helm and to this day being on a boat is one of my favourite things in the world. My earliest memories are of cruising in Haida Gwaii, chasing whales, visiting Native villages, soaking in natural hot springs, fishing and eating chocolate cake. This is one of my favourite photos from Haida Gwaii. I’m not too sure if the reason I like this photo so much is because I look so proud of my dad’s catch or that my brother looks like a fish.. .


My parents have always dreamt of traveling the world on their sailboat and I’m really happy that they are going to finally start the journey. They are coming home next month to prepare the 40ft Way-She Goes II for her journey down to San Francisco, San Diego and then on to Mexico. They are leaving September 1st and they are looking for competent crew… if this interests you and you have experience in sailing and/or warding off pirates, shoot me an email at marnierecker@gmail.com and I’ll forward your information to them. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads that have inspired their kids to always follow their dreams no matter how crazy they seem!
