We had a
great time on the north Island but it is about time to head back to home
base. After leaving Alder Bay last Wednesday,
we spent four nights moochdocking in Tony and Rita’s driveway and enjoyed our
visit with them. One day we drove to
Cumberland and visited my cousin Rozanne and Jorma. We had a great visit then went to Love’s ice
cream where Aileen was able to get an ice cream cone. Both the coconut based frozen confection and
the waffle cone were gluten free so she had no reaction which was a very good
Anne drove down on Friday and we had another intensive geocaching day
collecting 64 caches. Richard and Georgia
drove up from Victoria on Saturday and spent the night. Tony and Rita provided a nice barbeque supper
for all of us just like we used to do at his Dad’s place. A very busy time. Aileen had to cut her morning walks short two
days because of bears that were too friendly.
down to Charlie and Sheila’s on Sunday and Richard and Georgia stayed with us
another night. Richard drove Aileen and me
to our eye appointments in Nanaimo on Monday then they went home. We’re trying to fit in a bit more visiting
while we’re here but time seems to be at a premium.
quite a few photos from the north Island I’d like to share but they will have
to wait as I’m going to load some from our Sunday walk along the Campbell River
estuary trail system.
