It was a great concert last night, the audience was overflowing and so very appreciative. It was a lovely little church by the waterfront, though unbelievably hot at the end of a sunny day!

The audience was very attentive and the acoustic lent itself to playing very softly, so I could employ the guitar’s full range of dynamics. I had a standing ovation at the end which finished off a lovely evening with a lovely group of people. The people on Mayne Island are such warm people from diverse backgrounds, and it was a pleasure to meet them afterwards at the reception.

I am off to Pender Island on Thursday and then to Victoria.

Here I am on Mayne Island in British Columbia, living in a forest and only a 10 minute walk from the sea. I am being very well looked after, and looking forward to my first recital here tomorrow evening. There are hundreds of beautiful birds here – my first time seeing a humming bird!
