Whew… I’ve never been more reluctant to return home than I was today, but here I am none the less. Sunburnt, bug bitten and more content than I have been in months, I’ve been wandering the north central island from Courtenay to Sayward, Comox to Cumberland and everywhere in between. Based out of a home high on the alpine slopes of Mt. Washington, it was easy to fall even deeper in love with this very unique part of Vancouver Island as the kids and I discovered ( and re-discovered, in my case) just how precious and pristine so much of this province still is.
Full story to come sometime this week, after I catch up on laundry, cover all my black fly bites in calamine, and contemplate how BC ferries can justify charging $3.10 for two slices of toast, when I can buy an entire bloody loaf for that price… and that isn’t the only BC Ferries story I have for you – just wait.
