Rainbow experience bright

A warm welcome for a visitor to the Raft Cove gathering site.

Dear editor,

My mother went out to Raft Cove last week to take photos of the Rainbow Family and see what damage they had already made.

What she found was the same beautiful, clean beach Raft Cove has always been, with notes telling people to clean up after themselves by taking garbage, etc., with them.

There were 80 beautiful people out here who welcomed her with open arms regardless of what she was there for. They eat food that is supplied through boats; she was invited to stay for the entire day, and she did, and had lunch and dinner with them that they provided for her.

I truly hope they are able to enjoy the beauty of British Columbia in a location that provides enough space for them.

Good luck Rainbowers!
