Chicken Surf 2010

On the way to Richie's house we stopped at McDonald's to get him some cheeseburgers. There are no fast food places near his home. Port Alberni is the closest place for crap food.

Below is Emma pointing as a good picture poser should. This is in the Cinemocha? where we ate breakfast the morning of our surf. I had hot chocolate and a banana, chocolate chip, oatmeal muffin. Yum!
We tried to rent wet suits at this place but it was closed. It is hard to get used to island time and not being able to get anything you want when you want it. (Like Reactin!!!! ) This surf shop had cool stickers on the door but no sign to tell you what its hours are. Maybe they don't have set hours?
Jonny in the navigator seat. It is a hard seat to fill. Emma is the number one navigator.
Gay love on the beach shots.

Emma is trying to budge the seaweed. No luck.. it is stuck! Pop them with your feet and release the stink!

Yum! Look at our beautiful beach view. We are the only ones on the beach... I think.

Otis the cat tried to kill me. Stores in Ucculet wouldn't sell me Reactin because the till was closed.. so I died the first night... the second night I slept in the truck... I couldn't even breathe.. even with the Reactin.
Dogs chilling on a truck.
I had two toques in here.. one for me and one for Emma.. from Auntie Shirley.. now where did they go???? (thanks Luke!! He found them on the road in Courtney frozen to the road. It is dark in Courtney... I must have dropped them when we picked up Emma)
This is so comfortable. I could wear this suit all the time.
I love a good tail gate party.
Let's GO!
I am going first!
Bye Richie!!
Girlie surf!! Let's hug first!!

WOO HOO!! I am in the water!
The water is clear and pretty!
Are you cold yet?
Can you feel it yet? No... you?
I can feel it in my bootie!! (not Booootaaay Jonny!)
I am still warm. I love sun!
That was awesome!
Half a Jonny.

JAX Beach Summer School 2018

Our summer adventure began by leaving Frank Hurt a week early, the same time as the students. We drove to Bellingham and stayed at the hotel by the Slo Pitch. We had snacks and went swimming. Step one: Get through the border was done. The next mission was to make it through the Seattle traffic. We also stopped off at Bellis Fair and got a new hat for Big Boy as he left his in grandma's basement before we left. 

 In Seattle we stayed by the airport and found Angle Lake. It has a beach, BBQ spots, a play park, and a water park... and washrooms. I didn't have my suit on this time, because we thought it was just a water park, but next time, I am jumping in. Big Boy didn't want to go in without me.

We watched the weather forecast closely to make sure we would have some nice days in Seaside. We had until Friday to cancel. The weather looked good until the day we left so we went for it. The morning we woke up to leave (Tuesday), the weather app changed and gave us two bad days. Too late now! Off we went to Seaside. Carrie was already on her way but we did get an earlier start that I thought we would. We left at 7am. Here is the boy before we left - sad faced and with Bear. 
The City Center Motel. We were in unit 1 beside the pool. This was a great unit for us. Number 6 on the other side of the pool looks nice too. I thought we were going to miss having the little cottage one - but this was much nicer because the boy could have his bath.
Tuesday, we arrived and headed straight to the beach to play. We did wave jumping, beach bowling, and we made some roads and tunnels. Christian found a buddy his age and they had a great time chasing each other and playing.

Carrie found us! She …

End of Summer Adventures aka: Running Away from Project "FIX THE PATIO"

Bellingham  Well, this sucks... they are jack hammering outside our patio door. We better run away. Where can we go? Let's go to Bellingham and then back to Seattle and go swim in that lake again. 

Seattle  It was super hot the day we got to Seattle... we decided to wait to go to the lake until the next day... and it started raining?! One day we will spend the day at the lake and make a bbq. We did the second best thing and took the train to the city. Christian loves the train. 

Whistler  We came home and got a nice bamboo fence to block out the views, bring us some shade, and give us some security.

But.. the drilling continued on Monday... and got closer! Off to Whistler.
