Three weeks of being on the road, and there’s nothing so nice as to sleep in one’s own (king sized) bed.
We left Vancouver Island and hopped on one of the new ferries (Coastal Renaissance) back to Vancouver.
It had a great gift shop, though – found a fabulous Fall coat!
We got to spend some quality time with Ande; had a great supper our first night at Jackalope’s. The brisket was unbelievable.
She and I had a fun girls’ day on Saturday. We hit up John Fluevog store, of course. Our favourite Fluevogologist Allan was ever so helpful. At my count we tried on 18 or so pairs of shoes/boots. Three pairs came home with me.
The other two pairs were another pair of demi-boots, but with a finer/dressier heel, and a cute pair of lace up flats. We had Five Guys for lunch, then more shopping, more eating. It was fabulous. I’m sorry we don’t live closer together.
We spent three nights in Kelowna visiting the boys (I didn’t take any photos, but I think Bill has some on his phone – I’ll check tomorrow). I did do some work on my vacation, but only to make sure I didn’t drown under the onslaught of email upon my return.
By that time, we were all ready to head home:
And in the three weeks we were gone, I only knit a very little bit. The weather was great, so we did lots of walking and exploring in the van. I went to some favourite yarn stores and stocked up on sock yarn and some yarns for a few sweaters I’d like to make over the winter.
So now it’s back to work until October 31. I went back to Crossfit last night, then did derby skating for two hours. And went back to Crossfit this evening. My quads are so sore. Having a complete break from everything for three weeks was great, but coming back is a little painful.
