My Sisters Wedding: part one
Earlier this month we traveled to
Vancouver Island for my sister Charlee’s wedding. The drive took approximately 17 hours to complete so we split it up over the course of 2 days. My week off wasn’t exactly as relaxing as we had originally thought, but we had a blast nonetheless. We spent our first night in PG with Marlina. We pigged out on birthday cake and stayed up late watching TV and catching up. So much fun! After dozing off and waking up at 5 am, we drove and took the ferry to and spent the night at Charlee’s house and met her fiancé’s family. I am happy to say they are a fantastic bunch of people and very welcoming to others-I felt at ease with themJ. Nanaimo

The next day we went to Tofino and explored the town. As I said before, the island is a beautiful place. We went out for lunch (but wasn’t too impressed with the food!) and went fishing off the dock for a couple of hours. We caught our fair share of Perch and went home with our catch of the day. Gavin filleted the fish-which was more difficult that we had originally thought! He dipped the fish in a curry batter and pan fried them. They were perfectly done and so delicious! Marlina and I also made chicken tacquitos-one of my favorite Mexican dishes. It was quite the eclectic meal but delicious nonetheless. We then visited with some more family and friends…a perfect way to end the evening.
And that's it for now....stay tuned for Part Two!
