Photo escapism.

bathtub full of bottles

It takes a conscious effort not to think back at our time on Vancouver Island without an insane want to return. I have to force myself to recall the reasons we left, and then I always come to peace with the fact that it was the right decision.

Still, in a time when the winter seems to be refusing to leave, it is easy to get caught up in the warm memories of a summer in Maple Bay. Daily trips to Cowichan Bay to stuff our faces with cheese sandwiches & chocolate buns. Evenings spent on our lush veranda drinking red wine and watching the sunset. Living for the moment and throwing caution to the wind – it was a magical time.

ps. This photo was taken at the local farmers market on the island and it just might be my favorite picture that I’ve ever taken.

  1. Ahhh – lovely memories – it was time to move on, as you say, and things will come right soon, believe it! End of winter is an awful stage – just wait, around the corner things will be budding, blossoming, and the sun will shine again! Love the pic and one day maybe even we will get to taste a little of what you experienced living on Vancouver Island! Plans are mulling! 🙂
