time for r & r

It's vacation time! Dan and I are headed to Vancouver Island, Canada for a week.  We own timeshare and traded into a resort in Nanaimo that's right on the beach.  I've been to Victoria many years ago to the Butchart Gardens, but didn't have the opportunity to explore the island.  We'll be doing lots of exploring next week.

See Victoria on the southern tip of the island and Nanaimo is north of it, part way up the eastern coast. We also plan to visit Tofino (Lorinda's recommendation) over on the west coast.  Lots to see!

AND, the coolest thing ever!  I'm getting to meet a couple of my blogging buddies:  Jenn of Just Add Water Silly who actually lives in Nanaimo (what are the odds?) and Lorinda of Everyday Endeavors who lives in Victoria.  I'm SO excited to meet these talented ladies and talk art and life and just hang out for a bit.  Dan....well, he'll have to find something else to do without me for awhile!

I won't have computer access, so will fall woefully behind in blog reading, but will be eager to catch up and see what everyone has accomplished while I'm gone.

  9. We love that area! We have family on Gabriola Island (a short ferry ride from Nanaimo) so have spent a lot of time there. I tell my family if I ever have a nervous breakdown, they are to take me there to get well. It is a beautiful, soothing, interesting place to visit. Have a wonderful time.
