Life after haRVey!

4 Jul

After we said our good byes to haRVey we spent our last night on Vancouver Island in Nanaimo. Saturday morning  dawned grey wet and horrid. We had hoped our 90 minute sailing to the main land would be a pleasant mini cruise where we could watch for marine life from deck.

As it was we sat indoors, managing to get a seat in the pointy bit, and watched the rain stream down the windows.

Our rental accommodation was just a few minutes drive from the ferry terminal at Horseshoe Bay, how it took us 45 minutes to find it is quite a mystery! When we did arrive however we were very pleased to review the small but very comfortable ‘sweet suite’  Robert had booked through Vacation Rental by Owners.

The property has a cute, tiny, private garden with a semi covered deck area nicely provided for with two comfy chairs…. if ever the rain stops we may sit out and enjoy this space!


We stayed close by here in West Vancouver when we came over to source and purchase haRVey back in the autumn of 2008 so have a fair feel for the area. We hope to visit a few of our favourite places and hopefully see a couple of old friends before the week is out.

So, with a decent broadband internet connection and time to kill while the rain keeps us indoors I have been ‘playing’ with the blog. You may notice a few different features with my photos…

I am looking at creating a new blog for our stories when we are back in the UK – not sure how often it will get written or even the content of it as yet but we will see.
