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.

It takes 2 ferries to reach the first urban centre where one can do any city stuff!!! This means that many of us become savvy on how to Repurpose items thatContinue reading “Weekly photo Challenge – Repurpose”
One of my favourite places to go spend some time in Powell River, BC is Base Camp – Coffee + Food + Art. They have Graceful(ly) made their mark as one of the finest coffee shops on the whole Salish Sea. Displaying art by local artists, serving super yummy organic food, and doing their bestContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge – Graceful”
