(I was wrong - most of this actually happened in July.  Sorry)


Nara In Her Strawberry Outfit
My mother was hosting a number of relatives over the summer, but one week had a particlularly large confluence - my Aunt from Ontario and two of my Dad's cousins (and their wives).  How do you help out?  Come over and visit at the same time!


Botanical Beach

Tide Pool On ShoreHelen And Nara At The Beach
Botanical Beach is one of my favorite places.  I've been to Botanical Beach for day trips and I've also stayed in near by Port Renfrew for a May Long Weekend.  How is botanical beach with a 6 week old baby?  The walk down to the beach was fine (we use a soft carrier) but the baby doesn't like sunlight (you can't put sun screen on a new born and they do burn easily).  There was lots of good cover by the side of the beach so we took turns with the baby.


There are at least two different modes for exploring Botanical Beach - either the taster plate tour or the in depth look.  For people new to Botanical Beach you want to see everything.  If you have been here before, you start to look for details that are different.

My Mom's tour of the local sights includes a day trip to Salt Spring Island to see the farmers market.  For lunch we decided to do a picnic at Mount Maxwell - where I proposed to Helen.

There is a fantastic view up here but of course we ruined it by putting people in front.

 Lion King

Four Generations
My Parents and Grandparents had tickets to see Lion King!  Of course they can't come to town and not see the Baby.  Their show started at 7:30 pm and we got their hotel about an hour before they had to leave.  Nara was initially sleeping but with enough handling she eventually came around and said hello to everyone!
