I’m In/On Retreat

Monday I came to Quadra Island with 5 of my co-workers for a retreat. I won’t be going home until Friday. We’re at an amazing lodge call Tsa Kwa Luten on the ocean. Sigh, It’s only 6:30 am Wednesday and I awoke to the bark of a sea lion just down from our room. We got here on Friday in time for dinner and the food has not stopped but we did on the drive up and bought snacks (mine are healthy – peanuts and Thai Chili rice cakes). So far, I ‘ve had a greeting circle, massage, acupuncture, “Me-ness” workshop and 8 opportunities to be fed. So much food! We are so spoiled that the afternoon snack Tuesday was cheese, crackers, tiny spinach quiches and ribs. Yep! ribs.

The atmosphere is amazing and island is far bigger than I thought it was. I’m going to make this my walk day and go see the petroglyphs, the sea lions and if I’m lucky, the “Little People” of the forest and glen. I WILL  burn calories.

Thanks for listening, I would write more but the bald eagles are distracting me.   ;D   Diane

The evening view from my balcony. Sigh!
