Summer slips by

How did a week go by without my posting here?  Here on Canada's west coast, August is so lovely  that everybody goes into a sunshine trance.

We have impromptu barbecues, take the ferry to visit gulf islands, visit with friends in the back garden, go on picnics, walk on the beach with the dogs, hang out on docks...

We know it won't last very long so we grab every chance to enjoy the warmth.  That's my sister's back deck and a view of her gourds.

Early morning at the ferry dock, and the sun on the water in the channel.  

This fat harbour seal is basking on a rock at East Point on Saturna Island.  That's Mount Baker in the background.

East point is a great place for a picnic.

At the bottom is my nine-year old niece Callie watching fish off the dock.

I hope you're enjoying your August!


  1. You've really captured the slow, lazy days of August.
