A quiet day on Cortes



 
It rained heavily over night, that is excellent for the beans and peas I planted a few days ago. Cortes gets very moody when overcast and the West Coast Mist puts a mysterious cloak over the trees. 


Our neighbours Ruby and John brought us two beautiful mushrooms. They grow in our driveway, we would never know that they are eatable.



The first settlers must have were courageous creatures. I am currently reading Destination Cortez Island by June Cameron. Her stories about Cortes in the early 1900 are fascinating. At Mansons Landing settlers built the "Big House" which served as shelter, lodge, supply storage......


They were eager to belong to a community, in the 1930s they built the Gorge Hall Community hall.
