January 1-15, 2022

January’s weather is anything but stellar, so far.  Rain, snowstorms, tsunami warning, and very little sunshine.

Some of the highlights…

January 06th, wake to a crazy amount of snow for the Island  



Poor Bailey and Bob!     

And then there is this course! January 09 – A day of sunshine!   Off to Neck Point Park for a little dip and hike 🙂









Then off for our first hike with our Christmas present walking poles from Kyle & Megan

Beautiful scenery and glorious sunshine

Such hard hiking deserves our reward! Yum!Look close at the following 2 photos….   BUBBLES, big bubbles

Here on the hill, in the white hat is the Bubble Lady.  She’s hold a bubble making wandLook at these hardy souls, not even wearing scuba gear.  BRRR

Here’s Allan ready to soar with the bubbles…

A few more bubbles and a bird flying to check them out (click on photos to enlarge)Home to a fire to wrap up this, beautiful day

January 15th – D’rive back from our Kyle’s visit!  Rainy, foggy

First photo is from Kyle’s deck, fog galore, then rain, rain

Every visit I want to stop at the Malahat lookout but the weather never cooperates.  Today we stopped to these images         

Absolutely breathe taking…  what is that 2nd blue planet?

Home to a fire, the best way to end a day!

Today’s funny (or is it funny??)


January 01, 2022

We made it to 2022. It’s not looking like it will be much better than 2021, covid wise. Let’s all hope for the best.

Poor Bailey, poor us for having to navigate the stairs! I’m concerned about chipping away as it may break something in the steps.

Melt soon!!

We are kicking around various BC destinations for when we leave here, no solid plans yet. It is always an adventure.

For now, let’s just plan today! Allan comes up with a visit to a museum Debbie told us about; Hand of Man Museum. We are not huge museum people but this one sounded interesting, and it’s open 365 days.

How can one person accumulate so much stuff!

While roaming we encountered the founder Jim Shockey. Quite the guy, he spoke of how having such a museum had been his dream since he was 10 but realized it was out of his grasp as they were poor and lived in a trailer park. This is proof, again, never give up on your dreams.

We had no idea who this is. Turns out he is “a Canadian outdoor writer, a professional big game outfitter and television producer and host for many hunting shows. Born: December 20, 1957″. He is pretty interesting.

It was a fun visit and may require a return visit.

For certain, if you are in the area this is a must see!

Cheers!! 🍷🍷🍷
