My daughter came for another fun visit last weekend. She’s a blast to spend time with and things are always more fun when she’s around. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw her in my stories, dancing down the aisle at the theater. Living so far from her is sad and times like this remind me of what I’m missing out on… regularly.
We met my sister-in-law and brother for an early dinner at the Cview Restaurant, in Qualicum beach. It’s got a wonderful menu and great views of the ocean. I’m still trying to figure out what was in the sauce I had on my chicken. Do you do that? Try to recreate things you’ve tasted at a restaurant?
My daughter didn’t expect us to be going out so only brought super casual clothes. Luckily I’d done my laundry so she borrowed my maxi you saw here. Since she was wearing that, I wore my leopard alternative. I shared this with you a couple of weeks ago. I fully intended to wear it as a nightie but your comments made me rethink it. No one knows the difference, so, for now, it’s a dress.
The next day we hopped a ferry to Gabriola Island. It’s filled with artists and galleries. Being the seasoned traveler I am, I decided our first stop should be Malaspina Galleries.
Malaspina Galleries turns out to be a rock formation. My footwear choice wasn’t the best for climbing on rocks but I didn’t turn an ankle which I consider a
miracle success. The wind was intense so I was happy to have this jacket in the car. I bought this for our cruise last month and am shocked by what a valuable piece it is in my wardrobe.
We’ll be pulling up stakes and taking the ferry to Vancouver tomorrow. We’re spending a few days with these two before we start driving south. My daughter has some fun adventures planned for us which I’m looking forward to. Mostly, I’m just looking forward to being with her.
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
