Vancouver, BC

First, thanks to Jack and Cindy, they have been great hosts. First at their “cottage” on the Sunshine Coast, then at their home. They made our family visit fun. And not to forget Jude, their wonder dog..

And talk about food… first at the Cactus Cafe with their superb lettuce wraps, then Joey’s Shipyard for steaks and an amazing view of Seattle.

On a sad note, we had been planning this visit for several years. My sister in law Wilma has been ill for some time and we really wanted to visit. We made to the Canadian border in 2020 and 2021, but we’re unable to cross the border due to COVID. And cancer took her away last February so we never had a chance to visit with her. But we were please to see the rest of our family this trip.

Now we’re in the airport, sad to leave but glad to be going home. Until our next adventure….

Sunshine Coast

So now we’ve visited our family in Holland, my brother and sister in Victoria, so now on to my brother Chris’ boys in Vancouver.

Our Vancouver family owns a beautiful home about 50 miles north of Vancouver, on the water, with dock and boats. Recently Jack purchased a nearby island, called Tranquity Isle, which also came with a custom house. The area is called Sunshine Coast because they have more sun than the lower mainland. We spent a few days there with them on our family trip.

This is the season for catching spot prawns. It’s only some 30 days long, so timing worked beautifully. So we went to the docks to get some for dinner. Yum!

Jack took us out for a boat ride to the island and a visit to the area. It’s really beautiful here. Also, Jack and Cindy are excellent hosts. Plus getting together with my Canadian family made for an excellent visit. Thanks everyone!
