Back in Beautiful BC – Bowyer Island

We arrived back home the evening of July 19th. It’s such a pleasure to travel only one day with a one hour time change. We got busy visiting right away with family and friends.

July 23rd was the kick off to our 3 1/2 week road trip (named the rum tour with more on that later). We met up with our friends Don and Pam from Hillsboro, OR and headed to what has become our annual trip to Mike and Jikky’s place on Bowyer Island. We filled the day with walks, fishing and a cocktail or 2.

We caught enough prawns for the 6 of us for dinner and Jikky caught a Green Ling Cod that we released. The weather was hot and the water calm. The most beautiful place in the world in summer.

Back at the dock it was time for a dip in the ocean. As usual the consensus  was it was warm once in.

Now it’s serious cocktail time and out comes the rum,,,,,,, (again, more on that later)

There is some serious conversations going on at this point and we all love to argue about everything and anything. We all pitched in to make a fabulous salmon dinner.  Then a little deck dancing. Another FANTASTIC time at Mike and Jik’s island. Til next year!
