Bright and early we got up to catch the 7:45 ferry out of Tsawwassen to Nanaimo. Time for a break for us instead of going to the hospital or carehome daily. We are kind of burnt out. We wanted to come over to get some of our stuff out of storage to use at my Dad's since we're there for the summer.
It was a great crossing with blue skies although a little windy in the middle of the strait. Once we landed it was up to Kristi's office to get a house key and then we did a little shopping before meeting her for lunch. The kids are quite busy during the days we are here so Ray and I are mostly on our own which is fine by us as this trip is mostly about relaxing.
We ordered in Chinese Food so Jason would have some dinner and Kristi would have something to eat when she got home after meetings at 10:30 pm.
Tuesday we went to our storage shed at Ray's brother's in Qualicum Beach to get our leaf blower and shrub trimmer to use at Dad's. Ray and I decided to tour around Nanoose area where we have never driven before and then went into Lanzville for lunch at the pub. Home by 3 pm to relax for the rest of the afternoon. The weather was fantastic and we enjoyed a few strolls on the beach at some of the access points along the way.

The roofers sent notification this morning they're coming to Dad's Thursday morning to start the job. They are supposed to start after July 1st. Oh well, we'll have to move the motorhome as soon as we get home that day. Busy, Busy. The long range weather is good so I guess they'd better get it done. Good thing we were coming home Thursday anyways.
Wednesday we drove around more areas of South of Nanaimo that we've never seen as well as some old favorites, like the beach at Piper's Lagoon. For dinner we met up with our friends Gary and Janice in Parksville at their favorite Fish and Chip place, The British Bobby Restaurant.
Thursday morning we were on the 7:45 am ferry back to Vancouver. Nice to be back in our own "home on wheels", especially sleeping in our own beds. Freya was pretty happy to see us too.
