Ferry from Vancouver to Nanaimo

All photos taken on May 16, 2022. Driving to the ferry terminal, we wracked our brains, trying to figure out when our last crossing to the island was made from Horseshoe Bay. We thought it might have been in the mid 1990s. When we got home, I checked and determined it was July 1997. ToContinue reading “Ferry from Vancouver to Nanaimo”

the Great Pie Caper

All photos taken on May 14, 2022. No trip to Vancouver is ever complete without a trip to Tartine Bread and Pies on Beach Avenue for a whole sour cherry pie.

Benji’s Training Day

All photos taken on May 14, 2022. Benji, the Wonder Dog here. You can call me Wonder, if you like, ’cause, you will wonder where I am going, what I am sniffing, what I will be barking at and will I come when called. I like to keep my pack of Hoomins guessing. Its whoContinue reading “Benji’s Training Day”

Blissful Beaver Lake

All photos taken on May 14, 2022. Beaver Lake is a restful space nestled among the trees. The lake is almost completely covered with water lilies and home to beavers, fish, and water birds.

All photos taken on May 14, 2022. Just because we had a long bike ride yesterday, did not mean we were going to sit around today. There were still a lot of familiar places to explore, before we left Vancouver. On this day, K and Benji also joined in. To continue reading, please click here.Continue reading “Down by the Bay”


All photos taken on May 13, 2022. We often ask ourselves “When will we ever learn?” with regard to some of the hike or bike options we choose to embark upon in our mature years. Today was no exception, when son B suggested a 50 km (31 mile) ride into the mountains of the SeymourContinue reading “Bikespedition”
