Travel: A Weekend on the Coast

September was a busy one. We were away almost every weekend and got to do a lot of really fun things which was the most perfect way to end an amazing summer. The last weekend of September we headed out to Vancouver and The Island for a weekend away. The original reason for the trip was to pick up our brand new vehicle, well, new to us! I’m so happy to have something safe and reliable for these sketchy Canadian winters. We decided to make a weekend out of it and head to Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina on Vancouver Island for a of couple days. It was to get away for a couple days, however, it POURED rain. Now, having lived in Vancouver for 4 years you’d think I wouldn’t let a little rain get in the way of a good time. Pals, this was rain like I’ve never seen before on the Coast. It didn’t let up, even when it calmed down a bit, it was still sprinkling. We had planned to go fishing one day but the seas were definitely angry that day. So much so the ferries were cancelled. We ended up putting a few crab traps in and were treated to fresh crab for dinner that night – yum! While it wasn’t the trip we were hoping for, it was still an experience and for that, I’m grateful!
