They Might Be Giants


Trees. Lots and lots of trees. Big trees. Cedars. Firs. Arbutus. Spruce. Trees are the dominant physical characteristic of Gabriola. If you're outdoors, you're looking at trees. Unless you're at the beach looking out at the water. Even then you're looking at trees on another island. I was having a conversation the other day with a handful of friends, some of whom were native Northwesterners and some from the prairie provinces. The people from the prairie said they had trouble getting used to the trees, especially the largeness of them and the fact that they can create a slightly claustrophobic feeling. Well, all this talk about trees got me thinking that maybe I hadn't really showcased Gabriola's forest on this blog. But when I scrolled back through my posts, I saw trees in nearly half the images! So I guess you get the picture.
