Reflections and images from my travels

Here I thought I had signed off. One last full day in North Saanich before I head off to Pender Island.

Boy, did I sleep last night! I guess I needed it. I got up at 9:15 AM. Late for me. I had a really relaxing morning with domestic chores. Cooking a from scratch breakfast, coffee on the deck contemplating life, last minute laundry and even cleaning out the kitty litter box! You are welcome Pat (actually she requested it). Pat is away golfing in Comox for three days. I did not realize that cats are very fussy and will not use a litter box if it is dirty. Who knew!

The afternoon was spent walking the boardwalk in Sidney and admiring the views and all of the sculptures adorning same.

I then took the scenic route by vehicle (what, not bike!) of North Saanich. It really is pretty here. I passed an amazing church originally built in the late 1800’s and had to stop to take a few photos.

I then stopped at Roost Winery and Bakery for a latte and the best peach pie I have ever had. The server said “with whipping cream and warmed?”. I told her she was telling me all the right things!

I did a bit of grocery shopping in Sidney for a from scratch dinner (pasta tonight). I also got in touch with my friend Dave who also has a cabin on Pender Island. I got the directions and will stop in for a quick look, but, I promised him I would not squat!

I returned home (ha, like it’s mine), enjoyed dinner and then a hot tub with my good friends Port and Haagen-Dazs! The night ended looking out over Cole’s Bay from the deck with a crescent moon above. Life really is good!

Off to sleep and dreams of Pender Island.
