I Had a Holiday..


I've been absent.  I spent six days at our cabin in the gulf islands.  I've so much to show you, so I'll keep my text super brief. 
I present... a little slice of BC's Gulf Islands.


Our view.


The Island cliffs.


The ground is covered in this in some spots...


..this on the edges..


..and this on the paths.


lots of rows.



lots of quiet.


Every day, we had this little guy to our left..


This big boy above our heads..


..and these two to our right.
No power, no phones, no computer, no cars.
I feel better.

I was waiting for your post, H. Looks beautiful! One of these days I'll have to check out that little island of magic! That water looks amazing.

It is so beautiful on the gulf islands - what a wonderful place to have a retreat. I love your amazing cliff. Do you have to canoe or kayak to get to it? I see what you mean about your field of reindeer moss. I got a photo of mine on the last trip to the cottage as well.

mise said...

Same as me! But I find there's such a sweep of things when I get back after a week off. Pacing is everything, they say.

These are beautiful images of a clearly wonderful place. Next time, please reserve me the cabin next door.

I too vacation in the Gulf Islands but we do it by boat.
Your scenery is lovely... How lovely to have your own cabin, even without power, phone and cars...serenity at it's finest.

I see Mimi spent her summers on Mayne, I spent mine on Pender!

Oh, how could you ever come home after being in such an enchanted place? I am so glad that you had such a nice holiday. Carla

The Gulf Islands are wonderful - we have our cabin on De Courcy - it's really small, has no bridge access, so you have to have a boat to get there. Very quiet. The first shot is of a very tiny island that appears at low tide. It's covered in white sand and broken barnacles. We call is the Bahamas! We often take our sea chest there and hang out. When the tide comes back up, it's gone. It looks like the tropics there!

Gorgeous photos, Heather! So relaxing.
When I was younger, we spend a month every summer in Georgian Bay...the first few photos brought back so many memories!

So beautiful - i crave some days like this at the moment and hope i can get away soon. So good to reconnect to nature from time to time. Also, i just read abour Missing goat farm at poppytalk. So sad i can't beam myself over and have some of that amazing coffee!
