Good morning. Sorry I haven't maybe been on to your blogs to comment much, I have been trying to catch up. We were away on a bit of a road trip today it was only about 120 mile round trip but along very narrow winding roads and up and down steep bits, on our way to the west side of BC island to the Pacific Ocean and some Whale watching!!! Oh we were lucky, ok the whales were a bit out but we could see them, little Spouts of water let us know where to look! It's was a beautiful spot to be, down side would you believe they had a restaurants with balcony THAT WAS CLOSED!!! Yes closed as no one wanted to run it??? How stupid is that??! Thank goodness we has a flask of hot water and stuff to make a drink. ( we found the last time we could go some miles and not find a coffee stop) so we took a flask this time, we have used it a few times. Any way we then went on along the Coast to a light house out on the point, and walked the 5 km trail which was beautiful.
If you enlarge the photo just above here, to the left of the surf you will see a shape! That's a whale, sorry couldn't get a better shot of it?
This monument was just by the beach, the inscription is beautiful!!! "
" They will never know the Beauty of this place, see the seasons change,
we owe to them, men and women who lie buried in the earth
of foreign lands and the seven seas, dedicated to the memory of Canadians
who died overseas in the service of their country and so preserved our
Now can you see someone standing holding a stop sign on a busy A road to stop the traffic? In Britain? No Health and Safety here that's for sure!!!
Now the last photograph is a sign for my friend Mauren, she asked me to bring her a "Mountie" back. Haven't found one but saw she has a creek named after her, which I think is better than a " mountie" who won't always be around, the Creek has and will be there for a long time!!!
Well we are off out to meet up with another one of Charlies sisters for the evening. Well I could be doing just to have some time to have a meal on our own, but that isn't going to happen, so I will just have to put up with it.
Take care, I will try and look in on those who have blogs when we come back in and I am in the wide awake club.
