Canada is 150 years strong - Saturday July 01, 2017

It is hot! Just the way summer should be. Ari and I headed into Ganges town to see what kind of celebrations might be happening. Ari loved the Antique Car Show so we spent a fair bit of time there. Then off to the market which was, as usual, awesome. The crowds were fierce though and we soon decided to head for home and the lake. Along the way Ari tried his hand on the street piano.

Fiesta de Clase EspaƱol - Friday June 16, 2017

We had fun playing Spanish Bingo, eating a lot of great and varied food, drinking wine and Mexican Beer. This is such a good group and we have become friends over the last few years. Alex, who brought the cakes and Jota jota who makes that yummy casserole have been taking spanish at the Wilson Centre at least as long as I have. Sandra, our ever patient and enthusiastic teacher brought her Meatballs dish as well as her sister! Maria and Donaldo came – they are a lot of fun. Donaldo doesn’t speak much English but that didn’t stop him. He has a quick laugh and the two of them are just so sweet. I think everyone had a good time.

where we will be hanging out this summer - Monday May 29, 2017

this is part of the shared beach at SSIRV Park or Saltspring Island RV Park. I joined George there after a most wonderful overnight hike to Mystic Beach with Jess and the boys. More on that. Alma met some new friends at the RV Park and they went out on the paddle board. Both Aris were there for a time as well. What a great weekend. Lots of time to spend with Tera and we talked and talked. and then talked some more. We didn’t head back until today making this a nice 4 day weekend.

A year ago ... off travelling - Tuesday May 23, 2017

I’m just finishing up my photo book on our Portugal, Spain book and doing some pages on Morocco. Although we only spent one day there it was so full of sights, sensations, conversations with so many people and the ferry ride over was a trip in itself.
