^^ goodbye Vancouver! ^^
^^ as long as he was spared from the windier side of the boat, the kid was excited and running around like it was a playground! I was the on the other hand feeling woozy just looking overboard ^^
^^ hello Gibsons! ^^
As stated in my last blog post, we stayed at the Painted Boat Resort Spa and Marina, it was an AMAZING place to stay and a wonderful gift after a long day of being cooped up in the car and feeling car sick after all those windy roads between Sechelt and Pender Harbor!
^^ this is the view Max and I woke up to on our first morning! We heard frogs all night - no car alarms, no hustle and bustle of the city, just the sounds of nature ^^
^^ our first morning, the resort sent us a beautiful continental breakfast for 3 - smoked slamon, milk, yogourt, strawberries, pastries, muesli! Healthy start to a fabulous sunny day ^^
^^ husband managed to find people of the commercial fishing industry
and reminisce of the olden days. Beautiful Pender Harbor Marina ^^
^^ i think we were 1-2 weeks too late for Blackberry season! We did manage to find some plump ones, Max loves them..even the reddish ones which are so tart! ^^
^^ when you barely have any clothes on for most of the day, you know you're on vacation ^^
^^ Ethnic fare at Daphne's, downtown Sechelt ^^
^^ local entertainment during the Sechelt Night Market. Max really enjoyed their music ^^
^^ you definitely aren't in the city when a family of deer plant themselves on the resort lawns and eat grass peacefully amongst the humans ^^
^^ our final day's breakfast and first thing in the morning family shot (cheers for self timer!!) ^^
Thank you again to the Painted Boat Resort Spa and Marina, and towns Pender Harbour and Sechelt! We had a fun and relaxing time, were well fed, and simply entertained - you shall see us again soon!
