"I Love Totem Poles"

As most would know (also by my blogs name) I have a love thing happening with Buddhas. What some may not be aware of is I also really love "Totem Poles". But because of their size and cost I don't have them all around my house as I do Buddhas - I do have two little ones. The last time I was in Vancouver, Canada visiting Rachel when she lived there, we hired a Motorhome - which is a whole other blog post - and
traveled to Vancouver Island. One of the little towns we visited was "Duncan - The Town of Totems". I was in heaven, I couldn't move fast enough to take enough photos. I was like a kid in a candy store. The photos I have included here are one the scrapbooking page I did on Duncan and the other is Rachel sitting on a huge Totem Pole - from my memory I think it is the "Biggest Totem Pole in North America". I really enjoy learning the meaning of each part of the Totem and the detail carved is amazing. When standing in front of them I can feel their amazing aura.
Yes, I do LOVE Totem Poles!!!
