Monday 29th June 2020...Day 132!!

A beautiful day and as I have decided to stay off the courts until next Monday Boomer and I went for a 

long hike here...





It is just over one hours drive and we found the trail head and it is 6 km one way along beautiful forests..









Mostly by the river...










Boomer always finds the biggest stick he can...








The trail ends at Nymph Falls which are just spectacular...








Lunch spot..





One brave man...





I took this shot to show you..this lady was very pretty and most of her body that I could see was covered and I could only think to myself that my two little tattoos were not only painful but expensive...I wonder how she felt!!




Looking down river..









Back up stream..





It was a wonderful day out in the fresh air...Boomer enjoyed being off leash the whole time and even managed to get into the river!!





Tonight from my bedroom window...





Stay safe and healthy!!

Sunday 28 th June 2020..Day 131!!!

Woke up to very windy and cool conditions and I won’t tell you what I did this morning...⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️

By noon the wind had died down and the sun came out and it was lovely and I took Boomer down town and we did the 8 km Sea wall walk....

Enjoy the photos.....




Love this one





The Croatia flag on the left...good memories..


The mountains on the main land..

A working harbour..





















He was on leash but still enjoyed himself.....

This was going to be a funny comment saying this is just a bridge...





And I was going to say no not any bridge but the Pearson bridge....

Then I Googled  the Pearson it is named after and read this...


George Sharratt Pearson

George Sharratt Pearson (April 27, 1880 – August 24, 1966) was an English-born wholesale grocer and political figure in British Columbia. He represented Nanaimo from 1928 to 1933, Alberni-Nanaimo from 1933 to 1941 and Nanaimo and the Islands from 1941 to 1952 in the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia as a Liberal.

He was born in BromleyStaffordshire in 1880,[1] the son of Joseph Dudley Pearson and Emma Sharratt. Pearson came to Canada in 1889; he was educated in Nanaimo, British Columbia. In 1904, Pearson married Emmeline Pearce. He served in the provincial cabinet as Minister of Labour and Commissioner of Fisheries. Pearson was president of the Nanaimo General Hospital.[1] From 1941 to 1952, he was a member of a Liberal-Conservative coalition in the provincial assembly.[2] Pearson died in Nanaimo at the age of 86 in 1966.[3]

In 1942 Pearson was a powerful political leader who adamantly advocated for the entire Japanese population to be driven out of British Columbia, in spite of military, navy and RCMP assertion, that they posed no threat. “B.C.politicians took the floor. They were led by George Pearson, B.C.’s minister of labour. He was half mad with rage. His position was that the entire Japanese population could not be trusted and he sought a final solution for his province: drive them all out.”[4]

The George Pearson Centre of the Vancouver Hospital, originally known as the Pearson Tuberculosis Hospital, was named in his honour.[5] The Pearson Bridge and Pearson Park in Nanaimo[6] and the retired BC ferry MV George S. Pearson were also named after Pearson.[7]



After I read it I was enraged and will never think the same when I cross over that bridge!!!!!

Saturday 27th June 2020..Day 130!!!!!!

Heather and Kirby’s middle son Alex came home for two

weeks, he lives in his newly purchased condo in Vancouver......he brought his kitty Moon with him and we soon became friends last night...but now Boomer has to stay upstairs!!








Watched a live soccer game this morning from England .....I think I shall stop writing this every day..just assume that each morning I do watch a game!!


I then went down to Duncan, a nice town about one hour drive south.....I stopped in at the Nissan dealership and had my eye on this exact car.....I like the inside and it has the fancy things I want, a real good price and it is new...







Did not take it for a drive but will in a couple of weeks I will....I really want to wait a bit longer before I purchase one but this has gone to the top of my list!!


Boomer and I then had a short visit with my friend Sara, good to see her again and then we went down to the Cowichan River....


he loved being off leash and it is a very pretty area....Shelagh and Peter a great place for a picnic!!!
