Li's Blog: Early Spring sings...especially on a beach.

Early Spring sings...especially on a 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's waiting in the wings.

We are all hoping that DST becomes a thing of the past.  Nature naturally brings lightness as Spring is on its way, and darkness as Winter approaches.  It was already light at 6:30AM before the nonsense of "spring forward"!  LOL A

Hello Li - Sing It and Sing It Out Loud - well, you can I choose to hum a familar tune as not to annoy anyone.  I never thought of March as a bridge month because each day can bring so many new adventures.  Enjoy!

Nice to read your Salt Spring Island post; you introduced me to SSI a few years back, and I've been a fan ever since. Some day I'll visit.

It's a lovely picture that shows how beautiful Salt Spring Island can be.  It won't be long and summer will be here.
