Well, I’m fighting off the very beginning symptoms of a cold. Wolfe has it full force, and I -so- do not want to be sick right now. We’re over on the Island visiting my parents and my sister and her family in Victoria right now, and later in the week we’re going to start driving up Island to explore the Island from tip to tip! It always amazes me how big our country is… this “small” Island I grew up on in the North Pacific just off the mainland of Canada is close to the size of England. I live in a big country! The fact that we are going to be driving across it is simply… thrilling!
There are some amazing places to visit on the Island that I haven’t been to since I was a teenager, or younger. Some phenomenal beaches, places where surfers sometimes come from far away to ride the waves at certain times of year. Gorgeous places like the area in and around Long Beach, so much stunning nature in Canada, starting with the Island, my own backyard where I grew up, Ocean, woods, old growth rain forest… but right now, we’re going to be in town for just a few more days… dropping off passport applications in preperation for crossing the border much later in the year. Looking into getting a strong box built for the camper to lock in our laptops and cameras and papers. And other odds and ends. Not to mention that when we cross back over onto the mainland, I have to get my remaining two wisdom teeth pulled on the 1st of May, and then a visit with my psychiatrist on the 3rd, drop off a few things into storage that we don’t seem to need in the camper after all. Then, I think when we will finally be heading East across the country, I think that excited feeling in my belly is going to really swell, when there are no more loose ends to tie up here, and there is no set date to be anywhere or do anything until my lap band surgery in July, it is going to be…. like flying free.
