In Sooke

by Yule Heibel on August 3, 2003

Frederique and Sinclair Philip of The Sooke Harbour House are hosting an art auction and tea today from 1-4 p.m. to benefit the Women in the Woods. What a great idea: a linkage of sustainable economic and agricultural activity, site-specific tourism (vs. 3rd world-manufactured “disney” style doo-dads flogged downtown to the tourists), local art, and raising money for activists. The Sooke Harbour House is so bloody upscale that it’s typically out of my price-range, but this tea is only $15: oh, pardon me, mater, I’m going to the auc-tion today!

The Stinking Fish Studio Tour in Sooke is also on this week. Lots of reasons to head into the wild wild western summer of the Island.
