It’s been a rough week here around The Hollow as it seems that I picked up a bit of a bug. And we’re not talking about the delicious, fly-like kind, either, we’re talking about the kind that puts a trusty toad straight into the Lily Pads where he needs to rest for a few days. Thankfully, the worst is behind and I find myself stirring back to life and anxious to engage the world again. And perfect timing, too, I might add… spring has officially arrived here on Vancouver Island!!
It’s been a very busy spring here for us this year, with lot’s of exciting new projects and shoots planned for 2013. For those who follow us regularly, you already know of our Fine Art Exhibition just announced, featuring some of our favorite pieces on display in the Cow Cafe & Cookhouse in the tiny community of Cowichan Bay on Vancouver Island. The restaurant features some of our favorite food on the island, as well as the most wonderful views you could ever imagine. Like this one here.
As spring makes it presence known on the coast now, we begin to look around us with a fresh outlook, searching for really great projects to shoot and share here with everyone. We’ve got a few in the works right now, and some more in the planning stages, so 2013 is going to be action-packed, for sure. As the seasons transition from cold and grey to colorful and warm, one of our favorite pastimes is to visit Cowichan Bay. It just seems to us that no matter how many times you visit here, each new visit reveals a ton of great new items and details to take in photographically.
The first nice days of the year here found Mrs. Toad and I in a remarkable situation where we had a few hours to spend together. Without a second thought, we grabbed our gear and headed for Cowichan Bay. The air was warm, temperate you might say. The smell of budding flowers and emerging vegetation was all around us, and was truly unmistakable. The sea air lingered all around us, enveloping us in a sense of peace and wonder as the soft sounds of the water lapping in the bay gently echoed around us. We really do love this island we live on and find ourselves to be very blessed in living here.
And we so love sharing it all with you, our good friends.
