Happy New Year 2022!

It’s been a quiet set of holidays for us, but an enjoyable one. A rare white Christmas descended on BC this year, and it has made for some beautiful days and walks in the snow around Salt Spring Island.

The boat has kept us warm and cozy, despite some struggles with condensation and humidity this last week, as nighttime temperatures dropped to -10 degrees C.

And while another pandemic Christmas has meant keeping in touch with family and friends virtually, they are all very much in our thoughts and we all look forward to years in the future when we can gather together in person.

The cold weather has brought some nice surprises, not just the snow on the boat (and a friendly snowman), but the beautiful patterns in the ice on the harbour.

While 2021 has taught us to be patient and flexible in our plans, we are looking forward to venturing further afield in 2022, and hopefully next year ends with Innisfree gently rocking in the breeze on a warm sea.

Happy New Year to everyone and all our very best wishes for a wonderful 2022!
