I could hardly say I've lived on this island. Throughout my time, I've learned that living here is complex and varied, that it would take years to fully understand, that I don't even fully have any right to write about it.
I can only say what I've experienced so far: great generosity, beauty in so many forms, a supportive community, long walks, brunches, crazy sunsets, and many new friends. I've gone berry picking most places, to salmon seines, homestead brunches, happy hour on the beach, and also many moments of quiet.
It's difficult to fully describe or express, and I feel I won't really be able to until years of being here.
I hope everyone else is enjoying their summer <3
