Early Spring sings...especially on a beach.


Beach
Mid-March whispers the song of spring-into-summer.

Early Daylight Saving Time encourages longer days to extend even further, the annual Home & Garden Show on Salt Spring makes us want to spruce up our properties, the clean-up the Island committees are getting ready for Earth Day events in April, and we catch every sunny day to unfurl with the season.

Yes, there are still days that hark back to this past harsh winter...but there are many other days, on a beach, observing light dancing on water, protected from any wind, that remind us of the pleasures of summer.

Hold that thought! Catch those moments when you can. March is the hiatus between seasons. Needing to be practical? Clean the windows...invite light in.

March means it's time to dust off the hiking shoes...when did you last meander Ruckle Park?

Take time to remember why you arrived on Salt Spring...and take time in still stripped down March to observe the Island before "real Spring" erupts around us.

Meantime...enjoy your special beach choice and dream your dream of summer...it's waiting in the wings.
