Taken on North Thormanby Island looking north up Malaspina Strait. This was in the winter but, amazingly, this rosemary was in bloom in the winter sunshine! I’ve often felt that the dry, fragrant grasses of the nearshore habitats in the Strait of Georgia remind me of the Mediterranean. I loved seeing this Mediterranean plant thriving so happily in the salty air by the crashing waves.
