June is the month for roses!

Butchart Gardens has a wonderful rose garden to visit. There are garden tours in all the communities. 

Living on the Island in June

Around Nanaimo - Critters from my window

Twins! There are many deer in Nanaimo - especially in North Nanaimo neighbourhoods.

A calm summer evening

Near the summer solstice the sun appears to set into the sea.

Around Nanaimo - take the ferry to Gabriola Island

The ferry to Gabriola Island leaves from downtown Nanaimo.

Entrance Island from north Gabriola Island

Many of the islands off the east coast of Vancouver Island have the sandstone rocks sculptured by the sea.

North of Nanaimo - "Hornby Island"

This is Whaling Station Bay on Hornby. It's not a grand picture as the tide is out. Yes, there once was a whaling station here.

A forest walk

This is a cool day at Tribune Bay. Look at the August pictures for what this bay looks like when it is warm!

The right hand end of Tribune Bay...

Ford Cove, and the interesting sea-sculptured sandstone rocks.

Cruising is always a joy and new ports are always adventures.

I hope you enjoy the entries, and I would appreciate your feedback.

Thank you to Lynda Thompson, Lovette Kyllo, Kelly Raine, Jamie Robertson and Katie Robertson for sharing their personal photos...... and, of course, Google maps and Wikipedia photos.

From the thousands of pictures of Vancouver Island that I have taken, I have sorted some of them into months. This is a vanity project that I have enjoyed doing!
