Skips sister Pam lives in Anacortes and she arrived just after 5pm with dinner, and cold medication.
We passed the ferry coming from Duke Point on the island
And finally saw Vancouver Island
It was wonderful to finally be home, the dogs spoke with their feet, the Bostons chased each other, and Jake did his patrol of the fence line.
We didn't do a lot yesterday, today was a different story, the yard is a real mess, so I spent the morning raking the paths and Skip helped me clean the decks off .
There was lots of leaves both front and back.
The Red Current is native to Vancouver Island, once it blooms we are not supposed to get any more hard frosts.
the crocus and the primroses are blooming.
I could hear the boats out in the bay, but I didn't realize that herring season had started, I saw a fishing boat towing a skiff but by the time I got the camera out it was almost out of sight. The house with the palm trees is across the street from us.
I spent the afternoon unloading the motor home and doing laundry, it is good to be home but I do have a ton of work to do.
