A Visit to Vancouver Island

M and I went to Vancouver Island for my sister’s internment this week. While there, we said good-bye to my sister while visiting the places she loved on the island where she lived for most of her life.

    1. Actually, that’s the tree’s limbs. It has these sort of fronds growing from the limbs – no moss! It’s a very strange looking tree, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s some kind of cedar. ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. I moved here from Pennsylvania in 2003. I was on my way to California but as I was passing through the high desert of New Mexico, I loved it so much I decided to stay here instead. It was a crazy post divorce turning fifty thing. But it turned out great, I met my best friend husband here. ๐Ÿ™‚

          2. That’s a great story. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love how we can think we might be acting crazy and then everything just goes very right. ๐Ÿ™‚ My M and I had our first holiday together in New Mexico touring Taos and Santa Fe. He had never been before and he loved it.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
