Islands

Typical Island Shoreline on BC's West Coast

Islands in the Mist (Digital Painting)
Summer is coming, and thoughts could turn to escape to ? an Island. Robinson Crusoe fired our imaginations once. A Desert Island would not fit the bill as it is defined as uninhabited! Unless of course you are thoroughly independent like Crusoe! These are images from Islands we have enjoyed at the West Coast here in Canada.

I discovered an Australian magazine called "Island" you might like to explore whilst relaxing on your favorite one somewhere. Its subsidiary is called "Islet".
Lastly I continue to be impressed by modern technology. This morning I was intrigued by a sad but strangely melodic piece of music by Guiseppe Tartini (1692-1770) I was listening to on TV. I was able to share it with Hanne on You-Tube via the i-Pad  as she was still in bed.
Pender Island BC
Then I discovered why he was sad. The Cardinal had eyes on Guiseppe's wife and charged him with abduction so he had to flee the country for his life...
Thought for the day from Libya: War does not determine who is right- only who is left.

What beautiful photos. You are fortunate to have visited these islands and made instant memories with your camera. Was the second picture taken early in the morning??? My favorite time...
Have a wonderful evening.

Yes, early morning looking East. Thanks for visiting, and all the compliments, Cherie!
Thanks for all the nice things you say Des! Makes up for all the weird things I say!
Thanks for visiting Claudia!

If an eye for beauty, an ear for melody and thoughts for and of others and a sense of curiosity is weird, I would really like to become weird too.
