The air….aromatherapy with the smell of lilacs salt water honeysuckle
and the light gold at the edges of the day
swathes of green sloping up to robin’s egg blue sky flowers in front of every house, an embarrassment of riches
and of the course the ocean
(succulent Fanny Bay oysters fried up and loaded into a bun at Beacon Landing Pub in Sidney)
how could the food not be different here?
gorgeous grilled shrimp taco at hip, sustainable Red Fish Blue Fish takeout in Victoria
spot prawns from the Satellite Fish Company at the end of Sidney Pier, rich and unctuous as lobster
food embraced by land water and sweet /salty winds.
