Family Visits

We're back from our mini-vacation on Vancouver Island. My husband and I spent a couple of days in Nanaimo, mostly visiting my relatives. I saw my dad, and completely forgot to take any pictures even though I had my camera with me. We did remember to take a few pictures of my brother and his daughter. This is about the only one that turned out though. We were about to board a little "ferry" boat that takes passengers to the Dinghy Dock Pub, reportedly the only floating pub in North America.

After dinner we went for a walk on Protection Island, the little island near the pub, and my husband captured this lovely picture:

I've just returned to your blog to read the archives, and wow! I'm amazed at all the things you make. Goodness. You are extremely talented and extremely busy. I used to embroider a bit, and plan to do so again once I retire, but would never aspire to your productivity. However, I shall enjoy seeing your future achievements too.

No I didn't visit "Mad About Ewe" or any other fibre shops while in Nanaimo. I had time, and my husband offered, but I'm not a "Stasher" and at the moment I have several projects lined up already. I didn't see the point in being tempted.

Yes, I know. Strange behaviour for a knitting fanatic.
