Weekend Reflections; Shadow Shot Sunday 2

I tried to divide these pictures up for use in two different memes but couldn't, so I'm posting them to Weekend Reflections and also Shadow Shot Sunday 2.
They were taken during and after my visit with family and friends on Pender Island, in BC's Gulf Islands. Some were taken from the deck of the ferry, Queen of Nanaimo, which had to stop to unload and pick up passengers at Mayne Island and Galiano Island on its way to the mainland terminal at Tsawwassen, BC.

It was wonderful to stay in this lovely room, with such a beautiful view,
and with the flowers on the deck reflecting in the fireplace.

The shadows of two people can be seen on the foredeck. I'm the one on the right.

These are super shots, I'd love to live there! I would probably never move away from the windows.

Good thing you get to came back on occasion to get a fix of the west coast you love so much...:)

This looks wonderful - the trees and rocks keep the really big crowds away, like you would find at a sandy ocean beach Water and pines seem more peaceful, and the boat ride, and that room - what a view! That is relaxing in both looks and character!

What a lovely spot! Great shadows and reflections!
We never got there when we were in B.C. a few years ago - another place now to add to our list when we return!

I've really enjoyed your BC island posts; wasn't really aware of how great they are -- another place to add to my wish list!
