This is just a short post since I’m having computer and internet problems, but I just wanted to check in and say… We made it to Vancouver Island, and we’re thrilled to finally be here!
There were some tense moments (okay, some tense hours), but after weeks of “everything that can go wrong will go wrong”, we finally got here despite Murphy’s best efforts.
One thing: Driving the Coquihalla (Highway Thru Hell) in winter is off our Bucket List – we don’t need to do that EVER AGAIN!
Despite the fact that it “never snows” out here, we had four inches of the white stuff on Boxing Day, but at least it’s warm(ish) and the snow is mostly gone where we are. The Island is putting on quite a show for us – we’ve seen everything from a peaceful happy Island:
…to a cranky Island the very next day (yes, those are snowflakes fluttering down in the foreground):
But it’s all beautiful – I have to keep reminding myself that we don’t actually have to leave!
If the computer gods smile on me, I’ll be back to my regular programming next week, but in the meantime I’ll wish everyone a very happy New Year. “Talk” to you again soon!
P.S. I’m on Pacific Standard Time now, so my posts will be showing up in your feeds an hour later. It’s “Island Time”! 🙂
