I miscalculated the weather for this trip, which surprises me because I know the PNW weather all too well. We awoke to cool weather and drizzle on Saturday which hung around all day. My linen was of no value and I found myself wishing for a nice warm sweater. Luckily I’d left a jacket and sneakers in the trailer which I hope I won’t need too often. If you read yesterday’s post you’ll laugh at this outfit because I blended right in:) I have owned this Northface jacket for close to 30 years…the sneakers are newer:)
We met our daughter and her friend for coffee in downtown Gibsons at a cool little coffee shop where I had my first doffle. Yup, just like it sounds these are a donut and waffle combo that isn’t on any weight loss program I know off. No matter, this is a vacation and these calories don’t count, right?
After tanking up on caffeine and sugar we headed up the coast to explore. Our first stop was Roberts Creek, halfway between Gibsons and Sechelt.
The tide was way out so we could walk the shoreline. It’s a gorgeous, windblown spot with bright purple starfish hiding between rocks waiting for the tide to come in.
My husband surprised me by scratching our initials in the sand.
I am standing on a rock here…my husband is 12″ taller than me.
We explored a few other spots then headed back for lunch at the Wobbly Canoe. The place was jammed and for good reason. The food was amazing. I had my first fish taco of the trip and I know it won’t be my last. I could have opted for the salad but it didn’t seem like the right thing to do on a rainy day so I had the fries. Doffle and fries on the same day is a dangerous combo.
The obligatory selfie on the beach.
We’re eating out a lot here and finding the restaurants fantastic! I usually try to order what I can’t or never make at home. I could worry about my weight on this trip or just enjoy myself. I’ve decided to up my walking and worry when I get home.
Do you worry about your weight on holiday?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
