Sunday (May 19) Steve decided to throw a fishing line in the water off the dock while breakfast was cooking. (Deb's photo)
We made it...what a view!
At 3:00 it was time to head up to the deck so Deb could put a pork roast on the barbecue...dinner would be a little earlier than usual so that Kristi can get home early this evening...
We watched a movie...'Going In Style'...it was good and we even managed to stay awake!
Deb and I took our second cups of coffee outside and sat under the gazebo with the radiant heaters and fire on and a warm blanket over our legs...awesome!
It was going on 11:30 by the time we had the truck all packed up and ready to go. Thanks for all your hospitality, Deb and Ray...we had another fabulous time!
Our drive home was uneventful...busy on the road, though, with the holiday weekender's also heading home. But we experienced no accidents along the way and traffic moved smoothly, only slowing down through the Goldstream area of the Malahat drive.
We did make one stop...in Mill Bay to fuel up the truck. The cost is cheaper up there than it is in the greater Victoria area. We paid $1.37/litre for diesel (that's about $5.19 Cdn or $3.86 US per gallon for all of our US friends).
Once home, we unpacked our suitcases and with everything put away, we chilled in our chairs for the rest of the rainy afternoon.
Tuesday (May 21) was not very exciting. We both puttered the morning away and then went into Sidney. Steve took care of a couple of errands while I did some grocery shopping.
The sun had come out by late afternoon, so Steve decided to do his power walk down to Island View Beach and back. I finished watching the final PVR'd episode of Outlander and then walked down to the beach to meet him.
We sat out in the sunshine for a bit and then headed inside for dinner and our usual evening of TV.
