Quarter Deck Cottage...
a cozy place where there is ample opportunity for reflection...
time for daily walks exploring the local beaches and country roads
a place to quietly sit and read our books
watch the ferries pass by
and to cocoon and relax.
A welcome respite in these troubled times...
Salish Sea shimmering in the sunshine.
Quarter Deck Cottage
a beach walk not far from historic Hope Bay on Pender Island.
Someone has been busy making a driftwood shelter.
The view from the living room of the cottage.
Ferries come and go and we watch as they pass by on The Salish Sea.
This larger ferry in the distance is one of several that carry cars and passengers from Swartz Bay To Tsawwassen on the lower mainland.
The smaller ferries service the Gulf Islands of
Pender, Mayne and Galiano.
It is Cozy inside the cottage...
a gas fireplace and in floor heating really make a difference
as there is an autumnal chill in the evening.
Arbutus trees are now shedding their bark...
A pod of orcas swam by this morning...
there must have been a dozen of them.
It was difficult trying to capture a picture of their fins
you can just glimpse a small tip of one fin in this snapshot.
Sunset last night watched from the deck outside...
Life takes on a gentler rhythm at the cottage.
Grateful for this place of peace.
