Island time

We spent the Easter long weekend enjoying four days of beautiful weather in East Sooke. It was the first break I’ve had from work and school since January and it was so nice to be away from the routines of life for a few days. Early spring is an idyllic time to be on Vancouver Island, as you can see from the photos here. We did a whole lot of nothing while we were there …

… went for walks on quiet country roads

… sat on the deck and stared out at the ocean

… checked out the creatures on the beach

… puttered around the garden

… imagined apples growing on summer trees

… visited the Sooke Harbour House for Easter lunch (and remembered getting married there almost seven years ago!)

It was bliss. I can’t wait to go back.

    Sooke is gorgeous, our daughter lives there and we spent the month of November visiting all the wonderful sights around there.
