The Galiano

For my cousin Susan. Our grand-parents were siblings and they lived in Spotlight Cove on North Galiano Island on the West Coast of Canada. Our parents grew up there. Our family lived on Galiano through two world wars and the great depression and into the early 1980s. We all hold fond memories of this special place.
