This past weekend I had the amazing fortune to gather with six lovely women for a Pender Island getaway. It was one of the best wildlife experiences I have had - from seeing a pod of at least 15 killer whales go splashing by our patio, to hand feeding deer in the garden....it just felt like we were at the right place at the right time. One afternoon we even had a deer follow us along on a walk....it was definitely a magical weekend. We found new trails to venture, ate gourmet meals cooked by the group, danced the night away - it was all that you could ask for from a great getaway.

I'm a huge fan of B.C.'s Gulf Islands - there's something so utterly charming about the way people live - the pace, the natural beauty, the roadside stands full of beautiful flowers or farm fresh veggies...
We spent four days camping on Hornby Island and it quickly won me over. Here are a few images from our getaway:
They wanted to help build the campfire....but I think they might have mixed it up with Jenga because it's looking like they're building a four alarm blaze.
These moments are what it's all about.

This photographer had heart palpitations during the making of this photo.
Who's a cutie?
Breakfast outside, campstove coffee and these two - heaven.

Hi friends! How's your Summer been? Over the next short while, I'm going to play catch up on some of our little highlights so far....I hope you've had a wonderful time enjoying the great outdoors! This is definitely the time when our province makes it oh so appealing to stay close to home. It's just beautiful. Here are some photos from back at the end of June. One of my favourite things to do is to explore places I've never been before. Here's a beautiful park to walk around, complete with a water park and numerous playgrounds along the little 2.5 km lakeside loop. It's called Mill Lake, and it was a great spot to spend the day and bring a picnic.

Today our sweet friends picked us up to have an adventure. I can't tell you how grateful I am to have these days together. We started at the bird sanctuary(one of my all time favourite spots) and ended our trip on a local farm, having a picnic in a beautiful covered gazebo as the girls played the day away. The best things in life sure don't cost much - time shared, laughing so hard that a little pee comes out, savouring coffee, walking through gorgeous parkland, spotting wildlife, and ending the day with ice cream. Seriously, pinch me.
