We are in between holiday trips right now. We got back from Manning Park last Thursday and will be leaving early tomorrow morning to head out east on another road trip. I really do love spending countless hours in the car with Mr. Ciavarro commenting on the rocks, trees and water we pass along the way. I’m excited to hit up Revelstoke, because you know, we have this weird obsession with that town.
Vacation time is always a good time to play catch up. We did some gardening this weekend and I actually managed to edit the giant back log of photos I had waiting for me on my computer.
The next Summer adventure I partook in was Ginas bachelorette weekend on Galiano Island. It was hosted in conjunction with her friend Erins bachelorette since they are getting married around the same time and have a lot of the same friends. It was great to get away and explore a place I had never been to before.
This was our road trip crew – Tania, Kelsey, Me, Dawn & Gina.
Its been many many many years since I’ve been on a ferry. Actually, the most recent ferries I took were the ones in Italy.
This is the house we rented on the island. It looked a little better maintained in the photos but it was big enough to fit us all comfortably which is all we really wanted.
The first night we were there we walked down to the beach by the house. It was one of the most beautiful spots I have ever seen. I was expecting sand but instead found giant lava rock. Totally unexpected.
Gina and her maids.
I was obsessed with these holes in the rock.
Such a beautiful spot.
Saturday morning we checked out the Farmers Market which was smaller than I expected. There were quite a few booths selling second hand and random clothing and not as many booths selling fresh produce as I was expecting. Me and all my expectations.
After the Farmers Market we hung out at the beach by the ferry terminal. Some of the girls went swimming, the rest of us just sun tanned.
That afternoon we played a few games including a scavenger hunt which produced these adorable outfits for Gina and Erin. The ladies who organized the weekend did a fabulous job. We ate like queens and had a lot of fun hanging out and chatting.
This was also the weekend my nausea went away, which was beyond awesome. I guess sometimes you just need a change of scenery and a bit of relaxation to get your body to feel better!
