We had a great time visiting on Vancouver Island. We stayed with our good buddies from Dolphin Tales, Debbie and Lynn Greentree. They very kindly opened their home to us and then held a home coming party for us on Saturday night. It was a lovely get together, held in thier yard with a honest to goodness campfire. It felt very Canadian. Most of our cruising friends from last year's Bluewater Cruising Fleet joined us. It was great to swap stories and here what everyone had been up to for the last 9 months. We found it quite COLD. I had to put on a windbreaker and a fleece to keep warm!

We managed to spend one night with Barry's big sister and got in three visits with his Mom and a couple with his little sister. While we were at Sherran's some chicks were born. Sherran and her partner Doug raise chickens and sell eggs. Georgie had a great time watched the chicks break through their eggs. It was a interesting way to spend Mother's Day.
We would have liked to stay longer but my grandson was calling my name and I am quite anxious to get to Invermere, BC to visit him and my daughter and her spouse.
