Canadian May Long Weekend…

Rain, rain go away….and it did!  Pulled, tugged and cajoled our new trailer to Rathtrevor Provincial Park this past weekend to enjoy what this beautiful province has to offer.

Friday was a bit wet and Saturday too but with the Oceanside literally 100 meters from our campsite and no Wi-Fi it was peaceful.  The only real yelling and swearing besides the kids playing was a couple of youth who were angry at their parents for bringing them to a place where there is no Wi-Fi, after all how could they (see my earlier Facebook post)

We were excited to have Delphine, Frank and the kids over for a BBQ on a very sunny Sunday.  They supplied the main course and we supplied the marshmallows, sticks and funny observations.  In four hours we were able to have a great meal, hike, explore the beach at low-tide, fly kites and re-connect with the usual family jokes and funny happenings with the kids and dogs…..makin’ more memories, thanks you guys!

Tough little bloke…

Jack still has it.  11 years old and still takes 2 assistants and the vet to trim his nails…and all that coming off an ankle injury. Tougher than any sports celebrity we know…

Skies grey but the day is not….

Off to Vancouver and a few errands on the way….walk dogs on ferry, some shopping (order 20th anniversary ring for Tracy) same jeweler that has made her other rings, find motel, try shawarma and falafel for the first time – ever!

Jack, there's a good looking post over there...
