I love the island!

This weekend wasn’t really that productive but I definitely feel more relaxed. It’s impossible not to when you are on an idyllic little island away from the bustle and stress of the city.
The island also has a great old fashioned community feel which is rare these days. One of my neighbours came by the house today to drop off some cumquat marmalade and brandy she had made from the local island cumquats. I haven’t tried them yet but the brandy smells amazing.

Unfortunately I had to leave a bit early today and as I drove down to the boat ramp I saw this old canoe on the beach. I couldn’t help but take a photo.

Just across the channel at the swimming enclosure there were kids enjoying the warm spring weather. What a great place for kids to spend their childhood. They probably take it all for granted and have no idea how fortunate they are to grow up in this little piece of paradise.
