One of my jazz sketches, appropriately titled, “Longing for You.”
Welcome to Saltspring Island. Or Salt Spring Island, if your space bar works well. It’s spelled both ways. Just one example of the open-mindedness of the nice folks who live there.
Two of the island’s newest residents are our friends Luanne and Ken, and the photo above is the… um… stunnning… view from their guest quarters. Overlooking the mouth of Fulford Harbor, the view gazes out to moorings at Russell Island, and to other larger islands. In the background above it all loom the magnificent Mt. Baker and the Cascades to its right, in all their snow-capped beauty.
I don’t think I have anything more to add right now; this picture says it all.
