I’m back!

Sorry for the long absence! I was on a trip to British Columbia. Went to Vancouver, Victoria & then 10 lovely days in Tofino (on the West coast of Vancouver Island.) Had an absolutely lovely time with my dear someone, and the weather was faaantastic. (I think my weather curse has finally worn off!)

I did take lots of pictures, and boy, did we eat well. Can you believe I’d  never had Dungeness crab before? (I know, I know. But they’re kind of scary.) Well, I made up for lost time. Now I can eat one quicker than a sea otter. And oysters- raw, grilled, fried- you name it.

If you’re in Tofino & not into cooking for yourself, I can highly recommend the Wickininnish Inn and Sobo. At the Wick Inn (where they make their own butter- these guys are serious!), an eagle flew right past the window while we were eating. And Sobo has some of the best food anywhere. The polenta fries & fried oysters, oh my! For casual, go to the Jiggers fish & chip truck in Ucluelet- you won’t be sorry!

As my rental ends May 31, I found myself stressing out about “the future,” trying to plan & control things (b/c I’m so good at that!) But once again, the Universe showed me that it’s all taken care of, better than I could have dreamed.

With a LOT of help from my friends, I’ve found my next place to live. As of June 1, I’ll be back in Pt Townsend! Not only that, but back in my old apt, with the lovely red bookshelves! It will be such a delight to be back in familiar territory…

    Sara, you have been missed! Welcome back! Love the pictures – very different from where we are now on Amorgos. Here it’s fried kalamari, and no jackets needed. Wonderful that you’ll summer in PT – will you be working, or will you be a woman of (relative) leisure?

    Hi Brad, Amorgos sounds wonderful (and I’ll be it’s warm, too!) I would be quite happy to live on calamari & greek salad. (I just put Greece on the must visit list…)
    I’m hoping to spend my time in PT doing a lot of the things I didn’t get to do last time around… visiting w/friends, getting into shape, volunteering @ the library, kayaking, working on photography, etc. That’s a full-time job.

    Sounds great, and very full-time. Too bad – – guess you won’t have time to make me that pie…
