We moved up to my brother Charlie's on Monday.  We've been busy as usual.  We went to the Escapees lunch meeting in Nanaimo Wednesday.  Today I finally broke down and paid the money to get a new key for the CRV.  My key had broken loose from the remote a couple of years ago and I've been reluctant to spend $225 to get a new one.  I have spent some time getting the RZR out of winter storage and getting it ready to take out for a drive in the mountains.  I bought an overhead storage bag down south and got that installed.  That will give my camera a dry spot to ride when it is raining.  Last June on our three day ride, the camera got so wet it stopped working until it dried out hours later.
Tomorrow we are attending a drop in BBQ to celebrate my next in line brother Sam's 70th birthday.  Richard and Georgia are driving up today to spend a couple nights with us and attend the party.   That should liven things up for us.

I was riding my bike the other evening when I spotted this Ceanothus silkmoth on a building wall

Quite the setup these guys have

There are a large number of Sea Lions hanging out at French Creek.  The locals are not happy with all the noise they make.
