A few scenes on and around Bowen Island from the previous few days. Rain had been forecast for the long weekend, but we mostly had poofy clouds and blue skies.

The rain was saving itself for today, and I’ve been enjoying the return to sweaters, long pants, and boots. I love the fall season.

The extra days away were just the thing to recharge Boris and I. We were badly in need of a vacation.
