Bonny day

Today was gorgeous! Willow and I took a slow afternoon stroll to the beach at Studies Bay, went for a paddle, and got our toes wet. It was too irresistible not to!

Deep Midwinter

Here's one of my favourite pics of my little home, taken just a few days ago after the second big snow  storm of three we had in a week. It makes it look so cosy and I love the contrast with the white of the snow against the rusted patina and teal roof.

Snow

Not in the seven years I’ve lived on Galiano, have we had this much snow in one go! Certainly not where I am, which is virtually sea level right in Sturdies Bay. But last night there was 6-8 inches by 7:30pm, so I dug my snow shoes out of storage, and went out.

Gratitude

Yesterday, on my way for another day of medical appointments and and caught the beautiful soft pastels of a cold winters morn. Moments like these, standing on deck with the salty, wind whipping my face; just plain awed by the extraordinary beauty that surrounds us, and I am brimming with gratitude.
