The Magic of Sunshine

If you live somewhere along the West Coast of North America right now, I’m willing to bet your favourite form of social media is full of happy statements. Mine is, at least, and it’s due quite wholly to the amazing weather we had this weekend/are still having right this minute. Sunshine can make a pretty big difference in everybody’s mood. It definitely elevated mine and made for a really nice weekend.

A hot dog roast on the beach in front of our house. I love being able to run “upstairs” when we’ve forgotten something but also simply enjoying the waterfront, keeping our beers cold in the shallow waters.

Followed by a walk along our beach.

Sandy beach it is not. Every footstep is a crunch of shells and barnacles.

Sunset and a heron.

The babies are coming out. We can all agree that if any of us had a pet baby goose we’d call it Ryan, right?

We passed under the pier to get to the neighbouring bay.

I love, love, love Arbutus trees.

Peter and I have been so blessed here on the Coast. Someone at our church heard that we would love to have a little boat while we live on the water and so they brought over this rowboat.

Sunday

Sunday was First Shorts Day of 2013. A perfect day for an afternoon sail.

I didn’t take that many pictures on the boat because, well, we were sailing. It was splendid.

Sunday was also a puppy visiting day.
