soul food

Today was a day that included my three favourite things to do.

First was going down to a beach. We enjoyed our morning coffee/tea. Then I pulled out a book and read while we listened to the waves, took in all the ocean’s smells and just relaxed.

We next did a little bird watching. Here’s my list:

  • Mute swans
  • Trumpeter swans
  • Common terns **
  • Osprey – hunting/fishing and seeing it catch more than one fish – fascinating technique **
  • Turkey vulture
  • Great blue herons by the handful

The stars represent firsts for me!

Then we went for a hike in a small regional park. A Kingfisher greeted us and a deer paused to see if we were worth worrying about.

I love the diversity of living on an island. What’s not to love?
