This will be my last post for July, where did it go?? It has been a very exciting month for me with the arrival of Ramona Valeda I have spent the last few days trying to get to know how she functions. This is also my last week with Ken before his family returns on Sunday. We have had a wonderful time together he is a special man and he was so easy to be with. Just snapped this picture from the bottom of the garden, couldn't really capture the colours and formation of the clouds but still beautiful. Hope you all enjoy the next few days of sunshine...

Thanks to my nephew Andy, I would now like to introduce everyone to the newest member of the Pearson Clan. Her name is "RAMONA VALEDA" which roughly translated means, wise protectress who is strong and healthy. The motor home is very plush and will send some photos of the inside later today. Looking forward to continue my journey of a life time with Ramona Valeda in the fall. Thank you all for the best wishes....Les

Welcome to the newest addition to the Pearson Clan, name still to be determined.....Had a great day thanks to a very special friend who volunteered to drive me down to the dealership in Everett (5.15am ferry!!!!) No problems at either border and the only glitch was the ferry I was in line for was full, so had to wait an extra couple of hours . I am very excited and the motor home drives very smoothly I just got some what overwhelmed with all the instruction manuels that come with the unit but with good teaches and common sense should be able to master it all. Thank you to another good friend for being with Ken today, boy what a day, more stories tomorrow...

Just a great day....

Ken's 73rd birthday party.....We had a great deck party this afternoon for Ken and I think he had a really wonderful time. So nice to have good friends over and to be able to sit on the deck overlooking the ocean, seeing the mountains across the straight and celebrating a birthday. Thank you to all my friends this afternoon you all made it a special day and one Ken will remember, thanks.....

Having some fun here with Ken...this morning he went and got a hair cut and his beard trimmed and he looks great, just had to have him pose here. His eyes are so full of fun, decided to have the afternoon off and watch a soccer game on TV ( yes the big 52 inch TV!!!) So I had plain chips and ice tea and Ken had salt and vinegar and root beer, we were like a couple of kids playing hookey!!!!!!

Good evening, what a hot day here on the island I think many towns in B.C. had record high temperatures. The first photo is of "bambi" staying cool in the front garden here this afternoon. The other photo is the "2 amigos ". Ken is on the right in the shades and Uncle Bill. Ken is the friend I am staying with and his mother and Uncle Bill's wife were sisters. Ken is going to be 73 on Saturday and Uncle Bill is 93 years young!!! Today was grocery shopping day for Uncle Bill, picked him and took him to the supermarket and away he goes on his own with his wagon, gets his stuff and he is done. It was fun being with them they tell some great stories.....Watching world cup soccer on tv tonight, I am getting spoiled, Ken has in his living room a 52 " TV...Will soon be tuesday and motor home pick up day. Have a great evening everyone and stay cool...

Good morning this is the view from my bedroom balcony window for the next month.....I am now staying with my friend Ken whilst his family take a motor home vacation through Canada and the USA. The home is lovely and nestles on the ocean and the view of the mountains is spectacular and eagles glide by most days. Finished the weekend of soccer games yesterday and now a little rest. Next week will be the arrival of the motor home and another chapter will begin....
