The beach meant warm sun on my back and shoulders and soft warm sand under my bare feet. The welcome sound of the water lapping on the shore and waves breaking over the rocks. Happy surfers laughing and sharing stories of great rides and wipe outs. Beautiful young people catching some rays. Dogs making friends with other dogs and allowing themselves to be petted(with permission from their owners, of course). You get the idea.

Halibut steak at the Schooner Restaurant. It was stuffed with crab in some kind of sauce and cooked to perfection. Served with basmati rice and seasonal veggies. Generous portions. A deep-dish blackberry pie with handmade ice cream for dessert. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

Sitting having sushi on the deck of a restaurant watching the harbour and planes taking off and coming in. Hearing the waves splash on the shore. The quietness of the evening. The excitement and relaxed nature of staff in stores.
