We returned from our annual pilgrimage to Saltspring Island last week, and I thought I'd share a few photos.
Misty morning at Ruckle Park.
We shared breakfast with a hungry sea otter:
(Well, he didn't actually share, but that was just fine with me).
Spent the mornings exploring the tide pools with Grandma:
The tide pools are teeming with life. The kids love tickling the sea anemones and catching hermit crabs:
I think we got the best camp site in the park this year!
Couldn't resist taking a couple (dozen) photos of the Arbutus trees:
My son relaxing during our walk to the old Ruckle family farm.
The nearby farm has a large flock of free ranging turkeys. I just love the sweet sound they make (and no, it's not "gobble gobble"!).
I heart this old farmhouse kitchen!
Just as we were about to leave the farm, my daughter noticed that a turkey poult had escaped from the shed where his family was being kept. After about 15 minutes of trying to catch the little guy, we finally reunited him with his frantic mother:
I never get tired of this place.
