I love that vibrant sunshine can be just as beautiful when it’s liquid sunshine on Hornby Island.

I love that, no matter where my boots take me, you will always be home.

  1. These pictures show the true beauty of the island! I wish I could spend more time out of the city (Vancouver) and more time on the island! We spent a lot of time in Quadra and Campbell river and it was BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for posting these pictures, definitely made me reminisce and want to go back :) -Kate
