Keeping cool….

While my family is enjoying the heat of down under I am keeping my cool here on Salt Spring exploring the many streams .i love to retrieve stones and anything someone will throw for me.

Splashy Tuesdays….

Splashy Tuesdays….

Splashy Tuesdays….   Om Tuesdays I get to go to Bullock Lake Farm to pick up the weeks farm vegetables from our CRA  supplier ( Community Supported Agriculture)  but never mind the veggies, the best part is that I get to visit the lake for my weekly dives off the dock and general watery pleasures … In the summer the temperature of the lakes here reaches 26- 28 C so make it part of your trip to Salt Spring and swim in one of the many lakes( you will have to wait till 2018 but its something to look forward to...

Blackberry heaven

This is so much fun and yummy too.  I come along when we pick the Blackberries for our guest breakfasts ( smoothies,granola, pancakes etc) and pick all the low hanging berries. They are sooooo sweet and yummy but I do hate all those thorns on my tongue !!...
Sniffing the air…..

Sniffing the air…..

Now this is the way I like to travel ~ in classic car style –  head out the back, sniffing the air and spotting the deer. Today we drove to the beach in the “72  ‘B” , and while I dived for rocks, ( my all time favourite activity )  my owners swam in the ocean for the first time  this season ( can you believe it as I of course swim  year round – bunch of whimps!) .

I was  perplexed  as why they were so busy  and perturbed when they started to climb up my legs !   The heap looks a bit like a city , way too busy for my liking – I prefer the slower pace of the island lifestyle like here on Salt Spring ! So if you are tired of living in an ant heap, head on over and check out my slice of paradise !!   Woof Woof !!...
Me and my guardian

Me and my guardian

So today  my ‘guardian and  discovered  the “Totem Poles “ that stand proud at Burgoyne Bay  which lies at the head of the Burgoyne valley and is  the traditional Quw’utsun territory  and a provincial park . Locally its knows as Hippy Bay as there are  whole bunch of liveaboard boats  sheltering in the bay and I heard that one of them is even an art gallery !! ( maybe I should swim out and check it out  Hmmm! ) Love this hike as I can swim in the “relatively” warm waters roam the beaches and  the wide open fields of this old farming...
