Salty Breeze, Sunsets, and Parksville

Our friends, Klaus & Kamla, shared their holiday in Parksville, B.C. this year with Sue & I.  We had a great time.

We met them on the BC ferry in Tsawassen and crossed over to Nanaimo.


The ferry in Nanaimo was met by buckets of rain, but we forged ahead – soon we had left the rain behind. The rain is obviously what keeps Vancouver island so green.


The week went by quickly, visiting, relaxing, reading, road trips most days, kayaking, breakfast every day was a Chef Klaus kreation, and we had really nice break.


Something special about the salty air, and we hadn’t enjoyed it for awhile. The view outside the unit where we stayed was “slammin” (that’s good right?).

Whether the tide was in or out, looking out on Craig Bay was relaxing, and we were fortunate to see eagles, and herons.  I could sat out on the deck and just relaxed another month it was so great but we kept buying chocolate nanaimo bars and another week of nanaimo bars for me and they would have charged me double for the ferry back to the mainland.


A wonderful rest, with good friends. The summer of 2012 has already been special.
