Mr. HB and I took a wee bit of time off to gunk hole in the Gulf Islands aboard our Sea Ray.
The weather was stupendous, the food delicious, the pools warm and the books divine.
I bet you never even noticed my lack of posts I was totally offline...MIA.
Gowland Point Beach a 30 minute walk from Poet's Cove at Bedwell Harbour, on Pender Island.
Our summertime custom,
which quickly became a habit was to sip a cocktail, nibble some food and play crib.
Do you know what this is?
I gained 5 pounds even with the swimming and walking so will be back and vigilant on the WW points system and pounding the pavement when I can see above the pile of laundry in the basement!
It's a car stop...with no transit on the island and one taxi this is how the non walkers get around.
No need to hitch hike just stand and wait for the next car to stop.
Darling daughter and I did this a couple of years ago and were picked up by the most eccentric woman I have ever had the pleasure of conversing with...
oh and her very shaggy wet and drooling doggies shared the back seat with us!
There were a few wildlife sightings at dusk.
Some seaweed encounters...
A fascinating read which BTW is the third book I have read in 10 days!
I wish that I had invented Zip Loc bags...
they are a galley slave's best friend.
Our salmon is marinating in garlic, diced ginger, green onions, soy sauce and a pinch of sugar.
I usually use maple syrup but had none on board so I had to be creative.
"One Pot Wonders"
are the name of the game on board with one burner.
We are fortunate enough to have a microwave and a BBQ.
I try to keep the meals simple.
My pedicure is still intact but many of the crystals have fallen off my flip flops...
(too many salty beach walks)
I will be replacing these before next summer.
We celebrated Henry's first birthday this afternoon and he is the most adorable blond boy in the entire universe...
I am feeling very mellow despite the fact that I am dealing with a mountain of laundry.
But you all know how much I LOVE doing laundry!
and dishes...using pure linens.
Will be back in jiff...
thanks for stopping by.
