“Striking a Pose” Challenge 2016

One of the highlights of our trip to the East Coast of Canada last summer was taking photos while striking a yoga pose at various locations on our month long holiday visiting the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec. Even M. got into the challenge and when we arrived at […]

Costa Rica – Crocs and Ceviche!

After year’s of being invited to stay with my childhood friend Deborah and her husband in Costa Rica, I travelled there at the end of January for a 10 day vacation. I won’t go into why M wasn’t with me on this trip, just suffice to say make sure your passport hasn’t expired before you […]

Our Knight In Shining Honour!

On May 23rd M and I were invited to attend an award ceremony at the Flesherton-Markdale Legion in honour of his Dad’s military service during the Second World War, in particular the liberation of France from the Germans.  This week the story was all over the local newspapers on the Bruce Peninsula and here is copy of the article and photo that […]

Fishing off the West Coast of B.C.

When I was looking for some fresh fish  in Walmart (ok maybe the wrong store), the cashier told me that all the fish in Florida are previously frozen even when you see them nicely laid out in the display cases of the local Publix grocery store.  Hmmm !!!  So I need to find out what […]

The Sundial – St. Petersburg, Fl.

Yes, it was a gorgeous day here in Florida yesterday with temperatures in the high 70’s.  M and I decided to ride our bikes into town and check out the new Locale Market that just opened at the Sundial this week.  The Sundial is a new high end mall in the centre of St. Pete’s […]

September Long Weekend 2014

Here we are and it’s September 1st, our first labour day weekend at the cottage and another Canadian summer has come to an end (well at least for anyone with students going to school).  But this year we don’t have to pack up our things and head back to BC.  It seems strange to see […]

Weekend at the cottage!

So all you BC’er’s must be getting pretty tired of all that great summer weather you have been having.  What M and I have noticed is that when the weather is hot and sunny in B.C. then Ontario’s weather is the opposite and this year is no exception.  Everyone here has been moaning about the […]

Day 11 – Tallahassee, FL to St. Petersburg, FL

My apologies for taken such a long time to post anything about our last day of driving on our road trip from Victoria BC to Saint Petersburg, Florida.  So we left Victoria, BC on March 25, 2014 and arrived in St. Petersburg on April 2, 2014.  Our last day of driving was probably our shortest […]

Cottage Visitors

Last week we had four little visitors knock at our door.  When we went out to see them, they were all cuddled in behind our BBQ and cheeping like babies.  They are very cute and remind me of Lucy when she was a puppy.   Right now these cuties are small enough to hold in […]

Day 10 – New Orleans, LA to Tallahassee, FL

Yesterday I was having trouble walking as my big toe was hurting, but today I woke up with a swollen foot and big toe so after breakfast , I went to see a local GP in New Orleans and was diagnosed with Gout.  This has really cramped my ability to get around as my left […]
