Leaning Into Spring
We've been walking along Cedar Creek Dog Beach the past couple of mornings. Today the sunshine, the water and this willow made me think of all those vacation photos of leaning palm trees on sandy beaches in the tropics. The temperature however, did not.
On the March 4th weekend, the stars aligned and the offspring of Reginald Young (along with various partners and spouses) gathered together to honour Reg on his 99th Birthday. Hope you enjoy these cell phone photos from our trip there and back, as well as some from the blessed event.
The Okanagan Youngs rose before the sun to beat the snow storm headed for the Coquihalla.

We managed to reserve a spot on the Queen of Nanaimo, a non stop trip from Tsawwassen (Vancouver) to Long Harbour (Salt Spring Island) that doesn't run on a regular basis. Our usual route is Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay then switch Ferries to Fulford Harbour, which can take 6 to 8 hours. This direct trip was an hour and thirty five minutes.

Every Christmas, for as long as I can remember my heart has been touched by The Wonderful Window by Beth Vardon, illustrated by Charlot Byj. I believe it was written in the 50's and I would likely have received it for Christmas sometime in the 60's. It's no longer in print so I hope I'm not violating any copyright laws by sharing it with you.
