As you can imagine, it has been a few days getting good, old Euri unloaded and unpacked. I am a bit of a serious pack rat when it comes to travelling and tucking little things away, here and there. So much so that I even surprise myself when I start unloading and I keep finding mementos, books, shells EVERYWHERE!! It wouldn't surprise me if the gas mileage greatly improves now that Euri is unloaded!! Sheesh!!!
It has been SO nice getting back to our own place and especially our own BED!! It was funny, trying to get used to where we put everything in the kitchen, where some of the power cords for the computers and phone went. And just how did that TV zapper work anyway?? It was a bit like Christmas. Oh, up until the part where we had to figure out just what food we needed again. The house was, basically, left totally empty. There was just one or two cans of sauce and a bit of flour and sugar in sealed containers. Wow, the grocery store and Costco certainly liked us. I am expecting a call, any moment, from them to see why we have not been back!!
Just a brief overview of the past days, here are a few pictures. We haven't gotten out for any good walks/exploring but that will come this week - promise!!
A lovely sign for us by our friends, Bob & Danna!!
On the ferry ride back to Vancouver Island,
the beautiful Howe Sound.....
Cruising, BC Ferries style.....
What a picture perfect sailing day!!
Patio area all set up....
Susann & Lacey's (our landlords) new dog, Torry
(I think her pool is a tad too small!!) She doesn't like us, yet.....
Homemade chocolate chip cookies!!
(No, it is NOT possible to put too many chips in them!!)
Hold it, several are missing!!
Our infamous RoadPro crock pot stopped working.
Doug (my in-house handy-man) found a burnt wire. He "thinks" he has got it fixed!!
Little visitor at my sister's feeder today. It took a while
and several glasses of wine to get this awesome shot!!
Somewhat settled here now. Ready to take on a bit of island exploring. First thing though, we have to get our little black VW beetle, Felix, up and running. The battery was dead as a door nail when we got back. Doug jumped it and we ran it for over an hour up the highway. When we got back, he shut it off and it was dead again. It may need a new battery. We will jump it again and run it down to our favourite mechanic at Bavarian Auto Imports here in Nanaimo on Monday for a look-see!!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We are basking in the beautiful sun and heat here in the Vancouver area. We love, love, love it!!
Thought for the Day: Choose to see the good stuff....
