“I’m going to buy an island and take you there. A ship will come once a month with supplies. The rest of the time it will be just the two of us, wearing leaves and eating exotic fruit and making love on the beach . .” -Lisa Kleypas
I suspect most of know that’s not exactly how island life is in the northwest, well, except maybe for that ship thing….
What this island community does possess, is a deep respect for the fragility of our natural world and our responsibility to insure that it remains a haven from the relentless pace of development. People who live full time on these islands, cannot imagine themselves living anywhere else. It’s the beauty, the connection to nature, and the deep commitment to making their island a special place to live for themselves, friends, family, visitors and the animals whom we watch with joy and wonder.
If you are looking for a special place, a quiet place, one that tugs at your emotions as you stop to watch the setting sun across a calm inlet, then maybe living on an island, even if it’s part time, is right for you.
