The Salish Sea from Quarter Deck Cottage.
We see all kinds of boats and to get a closer look we brought our binoculars.
They come in very handy, plus we got to see the passing Orcas up close.
The small islands of North and South Pender have a few amenities.
Grocery store, library, several galleries, marinas, a pub, several restaurants and cafes, a pharmacy, book store, second hand shop and an antique store which has the most amazing artwork!
I found a small French satin glass dish made by the Verlys company.
The pine cones attracted me as soon as I set eyes on it...
It is so pretty that I do not plan to put anything in the dish I will leave it as it is.
The cones provide the "feet" for the dish.
I started this mystery book and am already halfway through it...
we can chalk that up to the wind and rainy weather here today.
It is very cozy and warm here at Quarter Deck Cottage.
We lit the gas fireplace and there is no need to go out and get soaking wet...
Mr. HB and I have waited for a break in the weather to get some fresh air but alas Mother Nature has other ideas!
