Sometimes the ideal weekend getaway is one that is not too far away from home. Bowen Island is such a place. A short ferry ride from Vancouver and suddenly you’re on “island time”.
The better part of the weekend was spent staring at the ocean. My favorite past-time: contemplative photography.
It didn’t take very long before some of the islanders came to welcome us to their little piece of paradise.
Before we took the ferry back home, we strolled around Snug Cove. They have quaint little shops, cafés, restaurants and an ice cream parlour. The weekend ended with one scoop of black cherry cheesecake ice cream for him and espresso flakes for me.
