It's still green below

by Linda Wegner on 02/24/19

It's no secret that this winter has been brutal, even here on the West Coast. Perhaps a better way of expressing it is, especially here on the West Coast. We've been buried in snow, and for those of us who have still dared to go out for anything beyond necessary duties, we've been wrapped in layers of clothes.

Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Powell River is a geographically isolated community with access to Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver, only by plane or boat. Yes, our travel options are expensive and somewhat restrictive, but it’s because of that isolation that we have avoided the hectic pace of city life.

Our scenery is spectacular and the opportunities for outdoors activities, abundant. Take a look and avoid being jealous, if you can. The photos above are courtesy of Sean Percy, outdoor enthusiast and scuba diver.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
