I am grateful for exquisite late autumn days. For the perfect crisp air, for the shimmer of the sun off the ocean, for the soft white not too hot to walk on sand. For a beautiful place with kind friends, who help make a long weekend not quite so long.
I am grateful for the perfect end to the perfect day. Beach for all, stand up paddling for some, surfing for others, naps for some, shopping on Hastings street for others, evening sundowners on the river for all. I am very grateful to be able to call this paradise home. For now. And especially grateful for being able to share it with my family.
