Sep 15, 2010 - Bear Lake

The sky was overcast as we left Port Renfrew this morning and stayed that way all the way across the island. The road has only been paved in the last couple of years: most of the maps I’ve seen still show it as a logging road, but it’s a good, paved highway, not lined, but two-lane most of the way. You meet enough logging trucks to be reminded where you are, but everybody seems pretty good about keeping to their side of the road. We enjoyed the drive. It’s pretty, forested country passing by several small lakes, creeks and canyons, and...

May 5, 2006 - This is a holiday?

Poor Dave...It's day 2 on Bryan's roof. He's looking tanned! We moved 30km today, from Parksville to Lantzville. While Dave slaved in the hot sun slinging shingles, the kids and I hit the park down the road, turned the hot tub into a great swimming pool, and chased rabits. Peter has been crawling for 4 days now instead of dragging himself around the room. He can really motor. Today I discovered how many rocks he can fit in his mouth - the most I managed to get out was 4 medium sized boulders. We will check the diaper tomorrow to see if any...
