It’s been 15 years since I’ve been on Vancouver Island and it was just as spectacular as I remember and then some.  Back then I was a student on The Island and didn’t really take the time to do any of the touristy stuff since that was “home”.  That changed last week because we really did pack with the whole see-as-much-as-you-can-see thing (and we might have even pushed it too far seeing I have a couple nasty blisters on my feet)!

We stayed at this adorable little place close to the Nanaimo Harbor and didn’t want to leave!  Could you blame us considering this was our amazing view?

Vineet went camera crazy as usual and so we have a ton of pictures clogging up our hard disk.  I promise I won’t break your blog reader by uploading all of them on my blog, but I want to share ‘a few’ 😉

The Old Country Market at Coombs was high on our list of places to see because of the goats on the roof!  Hilarious!!!

Surf shop at a Country Market, also hilarious!!

But the highlight was cold perfection in a cone.  I ate a huge honkin’  scoop even though I am one of the few people on earth who dislikes ice cream!

Homemade fudgy ice cream too hard to resist, YUM!

Next time :: blooms, blooms and more pretty blooms!

And yeah, there was knitting….

    ohhhh an Audrey….. you are killing me, just when I’m all over socks you have to make me want an Audrey. I need to finish my other sweaters first but I do have yarn set aside for one.
