Other Islands

Solstice. Shortest day of the year. Turning the corner of levels of light. All uphill from here on out. Left the bigger Island a few days back for one of the smaller ones in the Salish Sea. Headed east instead of the usual west. No surf, but a fine place to walk on the rocks and drink wine and read books and eat croissants from the Sunny Mayne. So good being somewhere with no stop lights for a few days. The less concrete the better. The less power lines the better. A great trip and a worthy way to honour our hemisphere's slow trip back towards the sun.
