Visiting Auntie Helen and Uncle Butch

Mom, Dad, Jonny, and I went to visit auntie Helen and uncle Butch in Courtney. Auntie Helen had just had her second surgery to kick cancer's ass and it was successful. YAY! Auntie Helen is a super healer and a trooper. She has a great attitude and is very spirited. It was hard to believe that she had just been operated on. She looked and sounded great. I pretty much expect her to be running around by tomorrow.   Before we left on our little adventure to the island I needed to get some long pants and bigger sweaters to fit my huge body.   Jonny did a great job helping me shop again.

You get monkey nuts and can throw them on the ground.   Annina in front of the Parliament buildings.   Annina and I had a Dairy Queen blizzard - she got the biggest small I have ever seen. She wasn't able to eat it all. We watched a crazy teenage girl across the street at the bus stop while we ate.   Long Beach - we really lucked out with the weather. It was so nice and sunny. Richard met us for a surf. It was good to see him. 








 I got one good shot of Annina!   Don't forget... this is the size of the wetsuit you were wearing Annina.. just in case you want to order one on the internet for the standing wave ;-) 
 Annina and I ate at Shelter in Tofino. It was super fancy and $$. Everything in Tofino seemed $$. Jonny was sick back at th…
