Interaction with guests
I'm usually at home, greeting guests and providing information about the neighbourhood. Another opportunity to interact is during breakfast which is served in the eating area adjacent to my kitchen. At times I am not at home, guests can always reach me by phone call, text or email.
I love our semi-wild backyard, the proximity to park, beach and shops, neighbours we've known for a long time.
Park, beach, restaurants and stores are within easy walking distance. The C-11 Eaglecliff/Snug Cove bus comes by our house, hourly during commuting hours and every two hours mid-day and weekends and on weekdays runs from 5:30 AM to 6:30 PM; on weekends it runs from 8 AM to 5:30 PM.

Happily retired from over a quarter century as secretary of the local community school, I enjoy meeting people and showing visitors shortcuts through our trail network and special places on Bowen Island. I love to swim in the ocean (we are a five minute walk from Pebbly Beach) and walk for pleasure. Lately I have started bicycling again, mostly around the flat parts in Crippen Park or taking my bike to Vancouver, exploring the many bike routes. I am still learning about gardening and what works in our climate. Every plant that survives and even thrives despite pests and predators is a success! In the winter, I get back to knitting socks, trying new recipes and enjoy a slower pace of life.
