Scouting for locations

It actually felt like spring here today, so a couple of us decided to scout for locations for a photo shoot for the cover of PROVE IT, JOSH. That’s one of the fun things about working with Sono Nis Press – I actually get to have some input into the cover design, which is pretty unusual if you go the traditional publishing route. I shot a bunch of photos of the boatyard and surroundings, so I thought I’d share a few here.

Here’s the boatyard at Brentwood Bay with the ferry dock in the background:


This is the ways (marine railway) used for hauling boats out of the water for repair:


Here’s the Brentwood Bay – Mill Bay ferry – just a small one compared to the ferries that run between Vancouver and Vancouver Island:


And finally, in one of the scenes in the book, the kids watch a seagull trying to eat a seastar. If you’ve never seen this for yourself, it’s quite a sight!


We even discovered a secret beach, but I can’t show you pictures of that, because then it won’t be secret anymore!

    Love the photos Jenny!! Wouldn’t it be great if some could be used as illustrations throughout the story. It does look as if the weather is warming. Can’t wait to come back for some more kayaking there.
