Last weekend, I was lucky enough to go to Qualicum for a night to spend a relaxing weekend away at the beach. There is nothing quite as calming as listening to the the ocean, especially when you’re falling asleep. I took some photos, which don’t even capture the beauty of it all, but I thought I would share them with you nonetheless!
During the day on Saturday, we did one of my favourite things: foraged for food (well, modern foraging at least). We went to multiple bakeries, checked out the wharf for fresh seafood, and picked up essentials for the evening’s dinner.
We were lucky enough to sample the salmon that was caught by our generous host. Dressing it up with a little lemon, herbs, and olive oil and grilling it on a cedar plank, the salmon was perfect. I brought back the shell above and will be turning it into a soap dish. All you have to do is soak it in bleach for a few days in order to ensure that the ocean smell disappears and it is clean for your soap! Easy DIY!
Have an amazing weekend. I hope you are able to enjoy some late summer sunsets and great meals outside.
