Salt Spring Island Retreat

I woke up yesterday to this visitor outside my window and thought, I could get used to this.

I’m on my second annual retreat right now. Last year I went to Bowen Island, a small, artistic community just a 20 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. This year I’m on Salt Spring Island, a one and half hour ferry ride away and a much larger island with a vibrant artistic and farming community. It is home to Raffi, the children’s musician; Nick Bantock, artist/author of the Griffin and Sabine series; Carol Evans, the watercolor landscape artist; Robert Bateman, the watercolor animal artist; Linda Popov, author of the Virtues Guide, and a whole host of other incredibly talented people.

This is my soul time. A time for rest, reflection and creativity and I’m drinking in every moment. I highly recommend it.
