Sitting in my new favourite spot, watching kingfishers hunt in the creek and sailboats bob in the Harbour as I wait for salmon to head upstream. Saturna Island, where the living is easy. #saturnaisland#nofilter#autumn
Please meet the amazing Lorell Gienow - she has lived on Saturna for 2 1/2 years now, loves the community feeling, peace and quiet and the spectacular hiking. Over half of Saturna is National Park land.
Her favorite place is Winter Cove, "a wonderful place to see and listen to the birds while enjoying ocean views", she says. East Point is a must see for visitors, as it is known for whale sightings and spectacular beauty. And her last tip: "Warburton Pike is a ridge hike on the well travelled goat trail that offers incredible ocean views as well." Thanks for sharing your paradise with us ☺️! #saturnaisland#weareSGI#southerngulfislands#bcferries#hellobc#explorebc#destinationBC#islandlife#beautifulwestcoast#westcoastlife
Høstferie i et land med mange gode isthe 🍁☀️ - ser ut som syden men vi er i Vancouver, Canada. I 2016 besøkte jeg en hylleblomstdyrker i Chiliwack, en dansker( 😅👏🏻) som kom til Canada og tenkte : her må hylleblomsten trives ! Det den gør- hos ham men desverre ikke vildtvoksende. Heller ikke mange produkter å se i hyllene her- mest hyllebær som medisin og kosttilskudd. Jeg håper på å besøke ham igjen! Gøy m kollegaer, som har dilla på hylleblomst og spreder godene i nye og gode lande 😉 #påferie#hylleblomstericanada#visitingbc#icetea#saturnaisland#gulfislands
Thankful to have so many Homes. In places, in people, in hopes. Things I can always come back to, things that will hold me steady through despair, things that I say I love but really the word love cannot begin to comprehend the depth of gratitude and devotion I have to these things. People. Places. Homes. #salishsea#saturnaisland#throwback#sunset#gulfislands
I added color to the sunset.. I was going to use colored pencils.. but I tried out #pastels instead (even though my color range is very limited) and I like the subtlety and soft texture of it. So I’m leaving it as is. This is a simple change, but I’m still counting is for another #inktober day 7/31. In my #tonedpaperlandscape series I usually add a single color focal point(s) in somewhere. So this fits. This is more subtle than the others and is not one single color but a mix, and a little different, but I think it works. It’s a good memory too.. even if coming back from Canada we had the sails down (and mast too actually, as we went under the bridge between north and south pender island and hadn’t put it back up yet) and that isn’t my boat as a reference. I did use my photo as reference for the background though. Someday I’ll get a drone and get amazing landscape reference pictures of my boat with the sails up. But right now I have almost none. Because if the sails are up, I’m on the boat as captain. I feel incredibly lucky to have the best toy ever to play with!! And this month I’m celebrating it with nautical artwork. Two of my favorites, sailing and art. (Family too, obviously, and when you can combine all three, well, I’m a happy girl). #inktober2018#nautical#tonedpaper#tonedpaperdrawing#penandink#tonedpapersketchbook#sailing#sailor#isail#imasailor#imthecaptain#girlcaptainsrule#pnw#pnwonderland#sanjuanislands#gulfislands#saturnaisland#penderisland#patosisland#sailingart#nauticalart
New home, new beginnings. night vs daytime views. Super cool seeing the cruise ship 🚢 go by last night. It just lit up the whole ocean like a Christmas tree, so beautiful. #itsthelittlethings#saturnaisland#myhome
