I thought I would share a few images from our recent trip to the island...! We spent a few days at our family property on Gabriola Island last week, and it was so nice to be by the ocean again enjoying some time just relaxing together. After supper one night we went down to sit on the beach and I decided to bring my camera along to grab a few shots in the lovely golden light!
It is fun to get to watch Lierra take everything in at this place that holds so many childhood memories for me. She loved watching the waves and throwing rocks in the water, and making Harley (my parent's dog) go jump and dive for them...! One morning when the tide was low my dad and I took her out to go flip over the big rocks and look at all the different sea creatures to be found. Crabs, starfish, eels, sea worms, chitons, anemones, sea cucumbers, etc. She was so adventurous and wanted to touch and hold everything! It's special for me to see her being able to experience these things and enjoy being at "the cabin" just like I did each year growing up.
Thanks to my hubby for grabbing the shots of me and Lili! It is nice to try and get myself in some photos every once in a while.
Lierra is at the stage where she is wanting to try and "smile" when she gets her picture taken, but it's a work-in-progress and sometimes the results are pretty hilarious. (I included a few outtakes, you'll see what I mean) ;)
