Saturday is usually soccer Saturday and today was no exception..I was up at 7 am to watch my Brother's team Hull play Stoke in the English Premier league...it was cool to know that as I watched 4 members of my family were in attendance at the game unfortunately they did not get the result they wanted as Hull lost 0-2!!!!!!
I then just happened to watch another live game whilst munching on home made fresh blueberry muffins that Heather just pulled out of the oven.
Did some more final trip preparations before taking Boomer out on his last long walk!!!
This game was of particular interest to me because of the referee...
I watched emerge as a great Junior Ref and then progress to the senior ranks.....I always see him when I come to Nanaimo and he is a great young man and is now one of the elite refs in the province and I am very proud of him!!!
These two were resting on the neighbors lawn!!
I have watched Heather and Kirby's three boys Ben, Alex and Zach from young teenagers to fine young men all doing so well in their varied and engaging lives!!!
Heather and I then went home and watched a good movie.
So tomorrow it is time to start the long drive back to San Miguel although I only go about 60 km tomorrow!!
I am meeting my old friend Sara she lives in Duncan which is still on the Island and we are going to a matinee production of a Norm Foster play, he is a very funny Canadian playwright and I have seen some of his plays and they are a hoot....afterwards Sara is cooking dinner and I am staying the night there before I drive down the next morning to Victoria to catch the ferry to Port Angeles...so stay tuned for the final segment of this amazing journey!!
