The Gulf Islands & The Beauty Shimmering Around Us
Salt Spring and the Gulf Islands breathe blue, that lovely French blue palette, of sea and sky. You know…the hue that makes us dream.
It’s a short season. Remember your Omar Khayyam (“the bird is on the wing”), and give yourself permission to enjoy this season’s ease….
A kayak meander here, a sunset beach there, a drifting across a lake on a paddle board, an ice cream cone on a dock, a coffee at a seaside patio with a view…pack a picnic and scamper down to Ruckle Park (always a good place to start).
The ferry goes back and forth, to and fro, and the floatplanes chortle in and out. The Harbour ripples through the marina.
Somewhere out there, beyond the horizon, everyday concerns pile up…summer-summer turns away…later is the mantra. It can all wait.
Right now, a seal slides past, an eagle ponders from a tree, and summer smiles over Salt Spring…enjoy.
