Easter weekend plans
Easter weekend is our family's traditional time to get together at the cottage on Saturna Island. This is a rustic place set atop a ridge with a kick-ass view of ocean and islands below. The cottage itself has no electricity; we cook on a wood stove and use kerosene lamps for light. Since my niece Callie was a baby the Easter bunny has hopped up to the the top of the ridge to hide eggs and this year will be no exception.
We have food enough for a feast and the eggs to dye and candy and wine and all the other accoutrements that go along with a weekend away. There will be seven people and four dogs in a two bedroom cabin so we're hoping for some non-rainy weather to get out and about.
I'll take some photos to post here when I return. It's a stunningly beautiful place at any time of the year and especially in the spring.
Happy Easter to all.
