I read oodles of books and gained a few pounds.
(no surprise with the amount of reading that I have accomplished!)
Friends who live on the island introduced us to the owners of a stunning waterfront home and garden situated at the end of Pilkey Point on Thetis Island which is known for its beautiful sunsets.
We sat on their deck and sipped a cold beer and marvelled at the views.
Telegraph Harbour Marina is well run and maintained
by the current owners Tara and Ron...
we have been going to this Marina since the 1970's when it was in Peter's hands.
Despite the lack of water they have beautiful flowers and a lovely garden.
The deep blue agapanthus attract bees.
Buzzing right into a flower.
A fun read that I found at the book exchange at the marina.
it feels familiar and cozy. The hydrangeas are in full bloom and the roses have another flush of flowers...the greenhouse is yielding our first summer harvest of produce.
Cucumbers and tomatoes
Time for a couple of salads.
I searched online for a new cucumber salad recipe
and found this gem here.
I knew that Jamie Oliver had a great tomato salad recipe in his cookbook.
He had a series on the food network that showcased his garden and he came up with recipes that used what he had growing in his garden.
The cookbook is called Jamie at Home.
I have a few weeks of laundry to catch up on and some groceries to buy...
the garden needs some attention and I have already started a "do " list.
My current book...
also found at the marina book exchange.
I love my Mulberry back pack bag.
Its perfect for the boat
as it is great for activities like walking, beach combing, hiking.
It holds my extra glasses, cellphone, wallet, lipstick and a few assorted extras.
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow today.
I'll be tackling the domestics starting with the laundry as soon as I hit the publish button.
Just out on the front porch...
Limelight hydrangeas and strawberries in a pot.
