I do NOT know when I wrote this! Probably before 2008. Not before 2007. I think it was when the boys and I were visiting friends I had met online. Here is the unedited text: The sermon was about the Martha and Mary story where Jesus tells Martha that Mary has chosen the better path… […]
Last Thursday, Mother and I drove up to Port Angeles (again) and took the MV Coho of the Black Ball Line to Victoria (again) and began a short excursion that included Salt Spring Island (again) and Courtenay/Comox (again) and the Saanich peninsula (again). It’s something we enjoy, places that are beautiful, laid-back, filled with kind […]
Summer is almost gone, in our world. Astronomically, we have at least another month. Realistically, two weeks. If we are lucky, an “Indian Summer” in October for three or four weeks before the clouds close in permanently and the rains wash all the remnants of sunlight away. A week ago, I was in “Beautiful British […]
This has been a lovely vacation. Hard to write posts on the ipad, must remember to bring a keyboard next time! Hence, the out of order posting, and the posting of this the day I got home instead of while on the road yesterday. It was written while waiting for the ferry, when I didn’t […]

Took the elder stidkid with me this past weekend to give him a chance to visit friends and see the sights of Victoria, British Columbia, in the winter. Unfortunately, the same snow that hit us hit them also. So we were unable to meet up with some of our friends. We did however get to […]
Yes, it took four days for me to post the last of the pictures from the trip. I will post my recollections later. The new week is upon us! And we have just bought a new washing machine… The pictures are at the post titled: Picture Postcards.
On July 3, we began our trip in Victoria, the capitol city of British Columbia. We finished up in Vancouver, Canada’s international city in the West and crossed back into the U.S. just east of Blaine, Washington on July 10. View Larger Map
I wanted to put up a bunch of pictures, but I am not really into writing a long travelogue today. So, here are a few of the prettier and more memorable pics from the trip to Canada. Sorry about the blurriness in some… my camera lens had a smudge on it that wasn’t apparent until […]
