I live on a northern gulf is. between Vancouver Is. and the west coast of B.C. My farm is located on a ridge overlooking a wetland reserve and Baynes sound facing Hornby Is. There is hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing in season,swimming and bird watching. Mt Washington is 1 hr away. I have two border collies and a parrot. Duties include gardening maintaining my chickens, some carpentry and chopping wood. It is small and rural and friendly. My house is constructed from recycled materials and at times referred to as Hippy Gothic. This is life in the slow lane, serene and natural beauty abounds. The summers are warm and dry. When the herring spawn in the spring, hundreds of sea lions, bald eagles and occasionally Orcas, can be seen. The swimming is great in the summer in the sea and the lakes. In the spring this is one of the best on the coast to see the Herring spawn and the hundreds of Sea lions, Eagles and seabirds all feeding on the fish. I am biased but this is one of the premier beauty environments on earth P.S. It does rain in the winter in a temperate rain forest and that is why there is more biomass here than in the Tropics.In the summer the climate is Mediterranean bur rarely over 30 degrees . We have two lakes for swimming and the ocean is grand.The pace is slow and the people friendly.Its summertime and the living is easy.As the summer fades the rains will come and it is welcome after our long hot summer.The wood stove is warm and welcoming. And now the snowdrops are showing and renewal will begin, and soon we will enjoy the garden again.The Spring is the best time of the year for me.
