Chester has definitely warmed up and is back to his former tricks...
a few more snapshots from our holidays.
Port Browning Harbour on Pender Island.
Mr. HB and I have been going there since the 1970's
when it was called Scot's Lair the bagpiper would play the pipes at the raising and lowering of the flag right atop this rocky outcropping.
The Marina is close to the Driftwood Centre which has a fabulous book shop, a gift store, pharmacy and a well stocked food market...
basically all the things we might need are a 10 minute walk from the boat.
This horse saw us walking by the fence and came over to say hello.
After checking us out it proceeded to munch on some dandelions.
The view from our walk along Razor Point Road.
This windmill was beside a farm stand that sold veggies, jams, wool and eggs.
We walked briskly for an hour in the hot sun to visit the Sea Star Winery.
I had worked up quite a thirst and the wine was chilled!
a lovely glimpse of the ocean from the top of the hill
There was a food truck from the Hope Bay Bistro on site and a Farmer's Market with veggies, breads, jewelry, pottery, flowers.
An acoustic guitarist played while we dined...
I had tasty fish tacos for lunch with a glass of wine.
The Ortega is especially nice for al fresco summer time dining and BBQ's.
When we pack for our cruising holidays on our SeaRay
we plan ahead and bring lots of books.
One of the luxuries of being away from our usual demands and routines mean that we can devote a good chunk of time to reading.
There are no distractions like TV or the Internet as WI-Fi coverage is spotty and unreliable.
Colm Toibin's Nora Webster is a gem...I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Jude the Obscure
I have another couple of instalments of the holiday snaps coming up...
with so many photos I need to break them up so that they don't bog down the Blogger site!
Hope that your week is a good one.
