fire hydrant, of sorts


This past w/e I bolted out the door from work, hopped into our loaded van and raced off to Quadra for a camping adventure with my DH, DB & DS-I-L. As we travelled the heavy rain clouds thinned and glory be..into the brilliant sunshine we morphed!

After snacking on the BEST fish & chips (available on the dock AND served in the paper cone still) it was onto the ferry for the 10 min crossing and what should we happen to be parked beside but this version of a fire hydrant.


Upon arriving at our campsite we quickly set up, set out our chairs and celebrated our good fortune with a beer while enjoying this amazing and constantly interesting view. Of course this is a highly edited version, it would have taken me the whole w/e to try to depict every single vessel in this busy marina.

Lots of goings on. Oh, by the way, this is going to be my walk for this week as well as we did walk and kayak more than a mile each day.
