We Made It!


On Tuesday we left our house at 6:00 am and headed north to Anacortes to catch the 8:15 ferry to Sydney, Vancouver Island, B.C. Our ferry ride through the San Juan Islands was very foggy and misty for most of the way. At first it was hard to make out the islands till you got very close. Towards the end of the trip the skies lightened up. Vancouver Island was nice and sunny. We made it to Butchart Gardens. We traveled on the Black Ball ferry out of Victoria to Port Angeles to get home. From Port Angeles we had to make it to Kingston, Washington before the last ferry set sail at 11:10 pm. We were so thankful to make it on time and to be in our beds by 12:30 am! I’ll post many more photos from our trip when I get a chance to sit at the computer more.

This morning I took our middle son to the doctor to get treated for an ear infection that he’s suffered with for a few days now. His ear was practically swollen shut.  Thankfully he got 3 different medications that should relieve the pressure and pain. I guess a mom can always be called upon to give tender loving care,  even to her adult children…

Now to get caught up with my other world…

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Looks like a wonderful little trip. I had ear problems when I was young. I even had a new ear drum built for me. No wonder I talk so loud LOL

  2. I’m looking forward to your photos of Butchart Gardens! We were there once, many years ago, but I can still remember the incredible beauty of the place!

    Oh, that ear infection sounds bad! Yikes. Hope it gets better very quickly now that he’s got the meds.

  3. So they let you out AND back in again 🙂

    I hope your boy feels better soon! Our New Boy is going to the ENT on Friday–third ear infection…

    • Oh I hope they get to the bottom of new boys infections. Our boys ear canal was almost swollen shut and the side of his face is swollen too. He is feeling better just knowing the meds are starting to attack the infection. Hopefully he’ll be able to sleep tonight. He hasn’t slept for 2 nights…

  4. Oh fogginess…boo hoo!!!! I can’t wait to see your pictures. Ellen B., I’m thinking about spending a night or two on Orcas Island. Do you know anything about that Island and if there’s anything spectacular to do?
