Bowen Island - West Coast Island Adventure

Oh my, what a day

Thought I was just going to my old stomping grounds Troll's in Horseshoe Bay for breakfast and a meet n greet with a new friend

Nope, much more than that, an impromptu invite for some Island fun!!! was AWESOME as Lego man would say

Some of this

More of this

Hmm, the sign says ...think they mean no tight rope walking

for someone that doesn't really drink, that I did

Decided to try to fit in and join the islanders for a friendly game

Grabbed a random child for a photo op, looks a little bewildered but all went well

Next stop Killarney Lake, beautiful and clear

Onto the OPA Tree - This ancient tree is over a thousand years old.  Bowen Island was clear cut at one time and for whatever reason OPA was spared, thankfully

We were happy to run into the curator of this fantabulous property, 5 acres of heaven on earth, visit their website for a great retreat idea Xenia Centre

Many people leave trinkets to show their appreciation, we also lit incense


off to the meditation sanctuary

 At the end of the day we ended up at the most beautiful house imaginable, for the sake of the owners privacy I did not take any pictures. Think Victorian mansion, Hobbit house with a little Beetlejuice peppered in for whimsy, take my word for it, incredible

Our chef spoiled us

back to the ferry and home again

As you can see we ate and drank like it was our last day, love love love adventures, thank you Richard
