What a beautiful day it is. The north breeze is blowing. And my marina view is awesome. I'm staying calm and peaceful. I choose to live a life happy. Bloom where I'm planted!  #beautifullday #july #holidaymonday #longweekend #julylong #canadadayweekend #marinaview #lifebythesea #violaflowers #viola #violetfamily #gardening #mybackyard
Thank you all for your love and support of my photography. I'm going to be stepping back from my social media and photography for the summer. I'll still be connecting with you, just not as frequently. Love from @graceupongrace.photography #love #thankyouforthelove #thanksforyoursupport #gratitude #summerbreak #lifechanges

World Ocean Day is celebrated to honour, protect and conserve the world's oceans. For me it gives me such peace, if I'm sitting or walking on the beach, or sailing the big blue. I love the sea. 🌎🌊#worldoceanday #worldoceansday2018 #june8 #oceanlover #ocean #oceans #oceanday #happyoceanday #respecttheocean #beresponsible #saveouroceans #sealovers #sea🌊 #waterislife #saltwater #protectouroceans #plasticfree #pacificocean🌊 #pacificocean #islandlife #beresponsible #oceansofinstagram

We live in a beautiful forested island. But right now 8 hours a day for weeks, I hear the chain saws, trees crashing, bulldozers moving the fallen trees. It has changed the wind protection that we had in our marina. I'm not sure what the business plan is, but it all comes at a cost to the environment.  #stopcutting #stopcuttingtrees #lookaftertheplanet #nature #explorebc #bc #lookaftertheenvironment #earthawareness #savethetrees #savetheworld #savetheplanet
We've had a weather change from our warm dry spring to cool, windy and rain. But the gardens, wells and the forest are all loving it. I'm loving to go for my walk early without the rain but the wind is blowing. I'm all good. #windy #coolday #rainydays #weneedtherain #islandlife #quadraisland #explorebc #bc #vancouverisland #vanisle #westcoast #westcoastlife #westcoastbestcoast #getoutside #pnw #pnwbc #pnwnature #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephoto #bythesea #seashore #driftwood #driftwoodbeach #oceanview

The studio tour was fantastic. From quilts to pottery, wood, antler, stone and metal sculptures/carving. So many creative people on this island. The last stop of my day was @islandblissfarm  and Periwinkle Cottage.  The cottage is amazing, it's on a working homestead, thank you Carol for your hospitality. The cottage showcased the beautiful water colour paintings of Helen Lee. #studiotour #quadraisland #perrywinklecottage #islandbliss #watercolour #art #artsy #artist #islandlife #details #explorebc #explorequadra #bc #vancouverisland #vanisle #tourismbc #pnwbc

These wildflowers look stunning against the evening sky.  In a place where there's deer roaming everywhere gardening is an issue. Unless you let nature choose. #wildflowers #daisy #foxglove #wildflowergarden #deerfriends #westcoast #westcoastlife #vanisle #vancouverisland #amazingvancouverisland #quadraisland #explorebc #bc #pnwbc #pnwnature #pnwflowers #nature #naturelovers #sundayvibes
Yesterday and today is the studio Art tour on Quadra Island. Studios and artists open their doors for us to get meet them, see their art and find out what inspires them. It's been amazing so far. There's a huge range of art. From carved antlers, metal/wood work, beautiful stone sculptures, pottery, glass blown pieces, quilts and a huge amount of art on canvas. Along the way some beautiful gardens. Some cultured and some homestead. #homesteadgardens #rosegarden #studioarttour #quadraisland #quadraislandstudiotour #vanisle #amazingvancouverisland #vancouverisland #explorebc #bc #homestead #pnwbc #pnwgarden #pnwnature #bw #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography

What a lovely view this is. Camp Homewood, on Quadra Island is getting ready for the season. Where you can go to ranch camp to enjoy horseback riding, and horsemanship at the harbour site. So that will mean water fun too. Or one of the other camping experiences they have available. Like sailing or woodsman camp. The setting is beautiful, lots of fun and there's something for everyone. #camphomewood #horsecamp #horselovers #horse #horselove #eatsleepride #gotocamp #christiancamp #summertoremember #summercamp #quadraisland #westcoastlife #westcoast #explorequadra #explorebc #bc #vancouverisland #vanisle #getoutdoors #pnwbc #naturetime #enjoynature #creatememories

What I loved the most about my backyard was the sound of the little creek trickling into pond. The activity of the pond was amazing. From the gold fish, dragonflies and the herons. Reeds and grasses to the water lilies. #pondgarden #pondlife #waterlily #lily #waterlilies #lilypad #flowerphoto #flowersofinstagram #aquatic #botanical #bloom #floral #throwbackthursday #throwback #gardenmemories #westcoastlife #westcoast #pnwbc #pnwgarden #pnwnature #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #botanicalart

I went for a visit out here a few days ago. I can't believe all the flowers that are coming up. The heron looks right at home checking out the pond. I love it. #garden #gardening #wildgarden #westcoastlife #westcoast #naturalgardening #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #pnwbc #pnwnature #pnw #pnwgarden #bc #explorebc #getoutside #gardener #heron
I love spring when the flowers just keep coming. And the colour of these columbine are stunning. Oh the beauty of nature. #columbines #beautyinnature #aquilegia #woodlandflowers #flowersofinstagram #flowers #westcoastlife #westcoast #pnwbc #pnw #pnwnature #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography  #bc #explorebc #getoutside #hellobc
Chives. They improve the flavour of carrots and tomatoes. A good companion plant. We can also be good to be around. Be a good listener. Be honest. Be loyal. Be supportive. Be a good friend. #companion #goodfriends #beafriend #listen #behonest #beloyal #bebeautiful #chives #chiveflowers #herbs #companiongardening #culinaryherbs #perennials #gardening #gardeningseason #
The flowers and herbs are all coming out at the marina. I'm glad this is a share garden with my fellow boaters. Rosemary, chives, sage, thyme, peppermint, lavender, tomatoes and a variety of flowers. #flowersofinstagram #poppies #poppiesofinstagram #marinalife #marina #sharegarden #takewhatyouneed #boatersworld #boaters #boatlife #vancouverisland #vanisle #bc #explorebc #explore #westcoast #westcoastlife #pnwbc
