November 04, 2021 RAIN!!

Once again we didn’t do the right research.

We wanted to be as warm as we could, Kelowna was not the place the Island is.

What we didn’t research is the amount of rain, pouring, relentless rain that falls 🌧🌧🌧🌧🌧🌧🌧🌧 on the Island. This is next week’s forecast

Wake up to this, after a no sleep, rain pounding on Bailey. So loud!

Walk to the creek, flooded, again

Out of total rain frustration we bought a canapy so at least we can have a propane fire during these crazy rain days!

No sooner do we get it set up, in the rain – the sun comes a peekin!

Looking out Looking in

We are loving it, great investment

11/05: 🌞is a peekin, again 🙂 Doesn’t last long but we take what we can get.

In Nanaimo we get to duck! Duck #54

11/07 – Turn back the clock day! Click here for how this craziness began

Win 1!!! Jackpot!

Win 2! Coffee with Ryan’s in the bestest rain place in town …

Win 3! International Merlot Day

Having nothing to do with nothing: Our new shower squeege makes me smile

November 01, 2021

Nov 01 – We figure to not go stir crazy with all this rain we must embrase the day! Off to Duncan famous for it’s totems! Allan, our photographer of the day, took photos of all on the tour.

These are the highlights…

This is Duncan’s Provincial Court of British Columbia building. Pretty funky 🙂

Biggest totem in town!

There are some very cool towns in Canada

End of October, 2021

I’ve been slacking off, feels like a long while since I’ve added to Bailey’s blog but here I go again summarizing the end of October.

Oct 22 – Today’s trip… Chemainus town of Murals, sadly it was pouring so didn’t take many photos.

10/23 – Kelowna last year, Ladysmith this year

Sun is a peeking!

10/25: Our drive to Victoria, actually Langford, to celebrate Megan’s birthday, Yep, rain, rain, rain.

Present opening time!

Kyle’s not a fan of hot sauce, we gifted Megan with 2 hot sauces. Allan’s favourite from Freddies in Kelowna and Mum’s. Mum’s has 3 flavours: Timid Hot, Sorta Hot, Darn Hot. It was the Timid for Kyle. We had them open at the same time…

The Rage card game is a hit!

Who looks happier with the ear muffs? These heat up using a USB.

Kyle & Megan bought Allan a funky wallet a while back. Somehow, in one of their clean ups they put it away and didn’t find it again till now. Gifts for all on Megan’s birthday LOL Allan getting a tutorial.

We were going to go to Megan’s favourite Italian restaurant in Victoria but it was pouring so hard we ordered in. Indian, delicious! We had a super fun visit, even let Megan win at cards.

October 26 – back in the park we take a walk. The stairs that were able to be used prior to us leaving are now under water.

The creek is not happy

When I posted on my FB page Susan, an informed friend taught us…“Amanita Muscaria! AKA Fly Agaric. The reindeers search for them near pine trees and eat them for an experience. It is said that’s how Santa’s reindeer fly. Notice they’re red with white, just like Santa! They are very potent.”

We found this mega leaf!

The next day, 10/27 the water receded

Missed checking on the 28th, this is what we found on the 29th. A salmon, we wanted to see them, forgot to add we want to see them alive. Wonde how he got there.

October 29, finally a break in the weather. We have our friends, Debbie & Donny along with Lucy, the pup, for a fire and visit.

They are as equally, unimpressed with the weather ie RAIN here.

Oct 30th – mostly cloudy but a bit of sun. We’ll take it.

Back at the creek stairs, what happened to the salmon??? Gone!

Halloween, offering adult treats!

Kyle & Megan’s 🎃 costumes! 🙂
