Made It!

Well, we finally made it to our destination - Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island. It’s great to know that we’ll unpack soon … for five months. Today on the ferry we were lucky enough to see a large school of Pacific white-sided dolphins. I usually don’t use the word “frolicking” but they really did seem to be frolicking in the water, despite the chilly, rainy weather.

If you ever get to BC, I recommend you explore the Fraser Valley and Hope areas -- west of Vancouver. This entire area is beautiful, ranging from large, craggy mountains to rolling, layered hills running up against gleaming lakes.

Glad you made it! I'm sure you both will be frolicking all over Nanaimo in no time. Congrats on the safe landing!

Glad you arrived. Gosh that didn't take you that long to drive there.

Feels much longer already that you have been gone...
