A Hot Summer on Bowen Island

I took last week off from work and my residency and spent a few days on Bowen Island with Boris and his family. It has been unrelentingly hot the last few weeks, and it was good to spent time walking in the forest, splashing in the ocean, napping in a cool place, and reading.
