Our Trip to Hornby Island

This Spring Break we travelled to Hornby Island with our good friends Matthew, Rebecca and their three children, Nathaniel, Hannah and Jeremy. Hornby is one of the many Gulf Islands of British Columbia. We stayed together at a cabin that belongs to Matt’s family. It’s a great cabin, newly renovated with a full view of the ocean.

This is a view from the front porch and the front window.

During our stay we enjoyed several outings, including one to Ford’s Cove. It was a feast of sunshine, nature, hiking, climbing and surprises.

The landscape is sandstone which has been naturally carved, similar to the “hoodoos” in Drumheller, Alberta or even the fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, Turkey.

We noticed that the children were fully entertained and ventured off exploring on their own. At one point I heard Miranda say, “Come on team!”

We were thrilled to spot a sea lion very close to the shore, poking his head up and down. We also got very close to some eagles which landed on a nearby tree and then flew off again.

In my mind there isn’t a better way to spend an afternoon than watching the spontaneity of God’s creation.
