Family Time in Powell River

For Canada’s 150th birthday, my family made our way West to British Columbia for our yearly get together. It’s a tradition that we started after we all grew up and moved apart.  This year we choose to spend an idyllic week at a small town on the upper Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. The week was spent with good food, good company, and lots of memories that will last a lifetime.  Continue reading

Photo of the Week: Canoe

Last week signaled the end of summer, but I am not ready to let it go just yet.  Before I officially say good bye to warm summer nights, walks by the beach, and of course smelly subway stations, I wanted to share this photo of one of my fondest memories of this summer.  Our family got together and rented a cottage by Lake Miskwabi where we spent a few blissful days eating, swimming, and exploring. Spending time with the people I love in such an idyllic setting is the epitome of the perfect summer.  Now I am ready to welcome Fall with her brisk breezes and lovely colors.

Photo of the Week: R & R

I’ve taken the last few weeks off from blogging to spend time with friends and family in Canada.  We made the trip home last week to attend my sister’s wedding.  It was a momentous event, 14 years in the making.  After all the fun and madness, we were ready for  some rest and relaxation by one of Canada’s many lakes.   This picture perfectly captured the idyllic setting – blue sky, clear water and lots of peace and quiet. The days are mostly spent eating, canoeing, and fishing.  I relish the rare vacations where we don’t run around like crazy. Check back next week for more posts on Portugal.
