Holiday Part 2...
Holiday part 2- Thanks to better weather and in better health, we took off last Wednesday for Vancouver Island to stay with my sister and her husband in Nanaimo. We have had so many good friends from Vancouver move to the Island lately that we spent the first 2 days visiting 3 sets of family friends in their new homes! It really is astounding the amount of land they have- big wide fields, talk of goats, chickens and livestock, these great little barns and tree houses for the kids to play in... well, needless to say, we felt a little jealous!
Back in Nanaimo, we went crab fishing with some good friends that were holidaying from Alberta, and although none of our crabs were actually big enough to keep, the mama seal and her baby that came up to the dock to say 'hi' made it all worth while in the end!
