Snap 1

This week I’m sharing single snapshots from our busy summer that has come to a close too quickly.  The best part of summer is having family together.  We were thankful to have all three kids home at once.  Don’t they look great?

Canadian Signs

Here are some of my sign pics from Vancouver island.  It was fun to see some new types of roadsigns and other items of interest.

This qualifies as a “sign” because it was on the street pointing the way to the Whale Watching day trips, which we joined.  We had some great views of whales but I don’t have them uploaded yet, so perhaps will share them later.

Tofino and Ucluelet

We really had fun exploring the areas of Tofino and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island.  We saw some gorgeous sights.

We came across this funny driftwood that looked like a face.

We also explored more tidal pools.

Chris is always looking for great restaurants and we found them.

It was so nice to experience another great adventure with one of our kids!



Chris and I took a few days off to go to Vancouver, British Columbia.  He was interested in seeing an area called Tofino, so we took a ferry boat over to Vancouver Island, rented a car and spent a couple of nights there.  The beaches are beautiful, such as this sandy one.

There were several wind surfers in this area.

The food in this area was great too!  This is a fish taco.
