Island time is less hurried, time to just enjoy the scenery, catch up on reading, take a nap, listen to the wind in the trees, the waves on the shore and the sounds of the birds.
Welcomed by the patina on this bell near the entrance.
In the morning I sat by the shore, enjoyed my cup of tea, and watched the sun play on the water.
These birds were circling in the sky, it wasn't until later in the day that we identified them as vultures.
Salal berries and salal:
Globe shaped cobwebs catching the early light:
Later in the morning a doe and her fawns visited; they munched on the salal as we sat close by watching.
A closer look at one of the vultures:
Kelp and tube worms:
Creatures hidden on the beach and in the forest:
The light slowly changes and then starts to fade on a perfect summer day.
And the light slowly slips below the horizon.
