Saltspring Island

Grateful to my assistant Michael, who allowed me a weekend off to spend it camping with family. Today was Michael’s final Sunday with the parishes and an opportunity for everyone to say goodbye to him and thank him for all the help he offered.
This photo shows the camping site that my family has come to almost yearly since the children were born. The moon was huge, as this evening will be a “blood moon” where the moon is its closest to the earth and will have an eclipse.
When we first came our children were very small, and their hair matched the colour of the dry grass meadow. Now they are active and explore the beach by themselves making sure to stay out of the way of the large waves that come with the frequent ferry passing nearby. The Saltspring Island ferry is much smaller than the one shown in the photo (that goes to Vancouver).
