Where are we?

Monday, June 10, 2024

Jeremy and I went fishing at Point Holmes it was around 8:15h. The weather forecast calls for increasing wind late in the morning.
We are using the down riggers for the first time. You have to use those if you are fishing for salmons.

The wind picked up earlier than expected. We are back at the boat launch by 9:30h.
Jeremy caught a small ling-cod. It was too small to keep.

Tuesday, June 11, 2024.

The wind even picked up more through the night. I even had to close the awning in the middle of the night.

Michele was not lucky today. She was out shopping at the local thrift stores when a power outage happens in the city. Many thrift stores and groceries stores were closed.

This is what happens when you leave your daughter without supervision while painting, even for a minute or two. She ended up with blue hands.

I mentioned earlier that we bought a prawn trap. Here it is.

Jeremy and I went for a walk at the Comox Marina to check out if we could fish from the docks.
Yes, we could.
Can you see the seal sleeping in the water?

Here he is.

We are having supper at Jeremy's place. We are having salmon.
But first, some action on the trampoline with Natasha.

Wednesday, June 12, 2024.

Jeremy is mountain biking in Cumberland.
I went with him, but it is hiking for me. A short hike to the China Bowls.

Jeremy is riding on bike trails. I am walking on a gravel road.
I see a lot of flowers by the road.

Perseverance Creek.

We are at the entrance of the China Bowls, looking towards the bridge.

The China Bowls were created by erosion.
The name China Bowls comes from the creek was once named China Creek.
A few photos of the bowls.

After the China Bowls.

I hiked 5 km today.

Michele has physio today. She is not feeling much better. The physiotherapist gave her more exercise. He wants to see her in two weeks.

Natasha is with us tonight.
We are having fun with bubbles.


It sure seems like we only eat Tacos when Natasha is with us!

You have to keep the routine, brush your teeth before bed.

Grand-maman bought some wall-stickers for her bedroom.

Thursday, June 13, 2024.

We have a busy day ahead of us today.
First, we are going for a hike at the Hole In The Wall.
Grand-maman keeps Natasha busy as we drove to the hike location.

It is a nice trail.

A banana slug on our path. Yes, they are that big.

Here is the Hole In The Wall.
At one time, a large water pipe was going through this wall. Once it was removed, erosion took its course and made this big hole.


Rogers Creek.

It is impressive to look at the rock formation.

Natasha enjoys the water and the sun.


Walking uphill to get to the car.

We are parked at the Coombs County Candy store. It is time for a treat.

Our next stop, the village of Coombs.
A quick stop at the local Dutch store.

The classic wooden shoe...

We made a stop at the Square and the statues for Natasha.
She is trying to look like the Buddha.

This is one hard saddle.

A good lunch at the local burger joint.

Natasha has ice cream with her lunch.

Now it is time for the Goats On The Roof.

Natasha is worn out.

We still have another activity to go too.

A little colouring before we go look at the butterflies.

They have a lot of butterflies flying around.




They also have orchids.

A Monkey Tail Tree ???

They have a pond with some turtles. The water is not very clear and we cannot see anything.

It sure was a busy day.

Friday, June 14, 2024.

It was a lazy day.

Saturday, June 15, 2024.

Michele finally went to all the thrift stores. Me, I worked on the next update for the web page.
Being Saturday, Natasha is having a sleepover with us.
But first, she went to a birthday party at the splash park. Jeremy said it was very cold.
The weather forecast called for rain, wind, no wind and more wind in the morning.

Michele picked up Natasha after her nap.

We played at our playground.

We had a good supper.

A good desert.

She ate so much for supper, when he snack arrived, she hardly ate any.

Story time and bedtime after.

Sunday, June 16, 2024.

Jeremy got up early to go fishing. He caught this fish.

After fishing, Jeremy came to pick up Natasha, She gave her father his Father's Day Card.


The trailer is sure quiet when Natasha is gone.

Michele and I went for a walk to Point Holmes.
Who are these three people?

Just some birds who look like they are cold.

Until next time.

Life is good...
