Salt Spring Island Polaroid Diary

Days two and three on Salt Spring Island I decided to capture with the help of my iPhone's Hipstamatic app for some low-key retro-ish prints. As most of you know, I try and go every year on the boat and have been going for 28 years... it is my second home in a weird way. So I figured, might as well capture it differently than usual...

Ever-present sheep

And orchards

They do cross near the signs!

Taking the zodiac to the creepy lagoon

Taking the motor up because of the creepy, close bottom

Rowing past hidden ledges of starfish

Dead trees

Beautiful pictures, just beautiful!

Question: What's your favorite red and white wine, if I may ask? :)

Erica - Hmmmmm, that's a toughie! I mean, really I don't have an answer lol.

I could tell you that my favourite types of white are Chardonnay (Australian or from BC), slightly sweet Gerwurztramainer or Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.

Reds would be Shiraz or Malbec or grenache, or maybe a really good Pinot Noir. There's also a lot of reds in which I know what brand or make it is but the grapes are unfamiliar to me.

I love that app. It makes the pictures look like you've had them in a box for years.

Anyway, great pictures, as per usual. I like reading your travel blogs as much as your concert adventures :).
