Prompt #26: PHOTO

“Post a photo of your favorite place and tell us what you love about it.”

Kayaking Canada’s Saturna Island

During our honeymoon in British Columbia, Canada, Jodie and I rented a kayak. For a few glorious July hours, we paddled around the southwestern corner of Saturna Island, part of the Southern Gulf Islands near the Canada-U.S. border.

Being on water is a favorite activity of ours. We never kayak as much as we want, but we do what we can. On this day, we packed a picnic lunch and made our way past pitted stone rock faces, beneath a somewhat cloudy, then blue sky with a slight breeze. Perfect paddling weather.

An otter surfaced near us, dived back down, and came up again—then jumped, as if to say, “What the hell are you still doing here?” Then it was gone, swimming away to our laughter.

Saturna’s public beach made a good stop for lunch. Snacking on bread, cheese and apples, we looked out over the waters between the islands, taking in the green of the trees, the golden sunlight on the water, the birds swooping overhead. Had we been on the island at a different time, we could’ve walked up the road a couple of kilometers to Saturna Island’s winery, but that will have to wait for another trip.

And on that next trip, there will be lots more kayaking.
