Weekly Photo Challenge – A Place in The World

I love living on Cortes Island B.C. Canada… it’s A (The) Place in The World where I belong!!! With all its natural beauty, forests, lakes, ocean beaches and shores – as well as an amazing community that has always made me feel welcome – I really cannot think of a better place to call home.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Favourite Place

I have to be honest and confess that my Favourite Place is where I live: Cortes Island, BC, Canada!!! It is one of the many islands on the West Coast region on the Salish Sea. I live on 33 acres, tucked in between two provincial parks – one of which is Kwas Park – and on the banks of two white sands lakes, Gunflint and Hague. And then there is Hanks Beach, a lush forest trails that leads you to the ever-changing sea. I take advantage of both Kwas Park and Hanks Beach on a daily basis where I get to see all sorts of wildlife, very few people, and to experience new levels of tranquility every day. On top of all this visual enchantment, I share this beautiful place I call home with a very supportive community with an abundance of talent. The bounty never ends…
