October has not had a great start in either the book review or the book reading department. I've completed 3 books and DNFed 2 others and am contemplating abandoning a current read. In an effort to break the cycle, I'm sharing a bit of what I've read so far as well as some recent life… Continue reading Mid-Month Check-In and Happy Thanksgiving!
We have just returned from our semi-annual camping trip to Keats Island. It was a hit all around. Pearl cried when it was time to leave and is already full of plans for next year. This was her third time, Rose's second, and I don't know what number for Peter and I. (Though I do… Continue reading Keats Island 2019

Some lovely friends gifted us this sweet Deuter child backpack (the Kid Comfort III, if you're interested). Now that Pearl's six months and… Continue reading Big Fir Hike
A year ago, I was swimming in this river: But summer locally is not too shabby either: This past weekend, Peter and I explored an area neither of us had previously been to. Francis Point has been a Provincial Park since 2001. A trail takes you along the water and through the trees. Walking through… Continue reading Hike at Francis Point
