Roses from The Humble Bungalow.
Cottage holidays are new to us and we are both enjoying the slow pace.
We eat simple meals, walk, swim, explore the island and read our books.
The Saturday Farmer's Market is super popular...
Wonderful fresh produce from Raven Rock Farm and there is a stall run by a French baker who makes delicious pain au chocolat and breads.
Another stall is run by a meat pie chef who is also involved in catering local events.
There are stalls with crafts, jewelry, pottery, leather goods, teas, jams, and more...
There is a line up before the 9:30 start with eager shoppers and their array of beautiful baskets.
The view from our deck of the Arbutus trees and The Salish Sea.
Lunchtime and salad makings from the market.

A glass of rose from the local Sea Star Winery.
Keeping cool on the deck with the gentle ocean breeze.
The candle holders are a vintage modernist design by Timo Sarpaneva
glass fish floats and a yellow David Austin Graham Thomas rose
atop an IKEA tray on the cottage dining table.

Thank you for stopping by

or rather The Quarter Deck Cottage!

Hope you have a weekend filled with good things.
