(Julian's newest novel did not disappoint, both Mr. HB and I enjoyed it)
We spent our days aboard our boat relaxing, reading, eating simple meals and walking and exploring the Gulf Islands.
I have to lose some weight as a result of too much rich food and wine...
I will be organizing a series of blog posts on how I plan to lose 10 pounds.
Perhaps you'll follow along on my journey...
There is a pile of laundry downstairs...the machines are going through their cycles as I sit here in the Humble Bungalow kitchen with my cafe creme typing this post.
The cats seem happy to see us...lots of meowing and purring.
They were left in the capable hands of a friend who has been taking care of them for our holidays for several years now and knows them well.
Chester seems a wee bit put out that we left him for so long and he is giving us the cold shoulder. I hope he forgives us soon, but thankfully Pepper the elder cat is her usual affectionate self.
Beach combing is one of my favourite things to do when we are out on our boat.
Sea shells and beach glass are often found along the shoreline.
A very large barnacle which we use for our coins...
showers, laundry and ice at the Marina's call for coins.
Loonies and Twonies
kept handy inside this vessel.
The view going through the gap between North and South Pender Islands.
Jude the Obscure rose was a stalwart on the trip...
even fading in the heat
the fragrance was a welcome reminder of our Humble Bungalow Garden.
Stay tuned for more holiday snippets and snapshots.
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
Hope that your summer is ticking along nicely.
