Last weekend I ecstatically walked three wild beaches in Tofino
with my dear friend, the well-known Canadian poet, Christine Lowther.
We borrowed Chris's landlord's dog, Meneena,
who was very glad of the outings.
There is nothing happier than
a dog on a beach.
Tofino dogs are all lucky dogs.
Me and my camera, enjoying the view
The waves are wonderful this time of year.
...and the skies and colours are ever-changing.
It is truly magical, a power place.
Driving home through the mountains, at the top of one of the passes is this lovely, still little pond. A quick look, then through the mountains and home, restored to myself in soul, mind and body.
