Balanced on Bowen Island

May begins...can you believe it?

I have been travelling so much away from this place that I love. When I am here I have been so present on the land, enfolding myself into Island life. Yesterday the kids and I had a great day, log hopping and building a small beach fire at September Morn beach on the east side of the island, checking the status of the emerging salal and salmonberry patches around there (and they are some healthy!) and then heading to Snug Cove filed to catch a baseball game, as the men's fastpitch season has started.

Nice to be home, for a short time, to touch down and feel the balance on this place. I'm son to travel again, but every moment I am on Bowen, I savour.
