Winging it to British Columbia

Categories: British Columbia and Out and About.

By the time you read this I’ll be finishing the packing and last minute details and by early week we’ll be heading for the airport to board a plane to British Columbia.  We are off to visit our family out there and take in more wonderful sights and create more wonderful memories of time with our family.

We look forward to visiting some of our favourite places.

Visiting the Esquailmalt Lagoon where you can see lots of water fowl, the bar headed goose and the black oyster catcher are a couple of my favourites to see.

We are hoping to see more of Hatley Castle, the Royal Roads gardens, the provincial government buildings, the night market and the lovely beaches.  We’ll get to explore a new neighbourhood as our family recently moved to a bigger house.  I’ll be collecting more driftwood and stones to bring home.  I made spinners with driftwood last year but have something different in mind for this year.

We try to go at a different time of year each time.  So far we’ve been at the end of June and beginning of July, November, and the end of July.  Now we can add September to our list.  We travelled twice by train and this will be twice by plane but either way the scenery is spectacular.

I’ll be sharing lots more when we return.  Of course the best part of the whole trip will be seeing our family again especially seeing how much the grandkids grown in the past year. While we are there I’ll be able to take our grandson for his first day of school.  Last year we made garden flags and I’ve got a craft all planned out for this year.  I can’t wait to get to the beach and start collecting.

Stop by Mosaic Monday and see more wonderful mosaic images that others are sharing.  I’ll be back sharing at the end of September.  This week the mosaic images were created with PhotoScape and Picasa using photos from our previous trips.
