We spent five days on Big Tancook Island to celebrate
Gary's special birthday this year. This is the 5 am view
from our bedroom window, birthday sunrise.
The colours of the southeast cove
and the morning sky warmed
and changed like melting crayons.
Our time on Big Tancook Island
and our birthday celebrations
were peaceful, full of delight
Big Tancook Island is the ultimate get-away,
providing opportunities to shed the unnecessary
burdens of life and to simply be,
fully alive, and aware of the natural world.
Gary says it made a birthday he will never forget.
