Yesterday after spending the morning bubble wrapping "treasures' that will be going to San Miguel, lunch was in order, and we went to a delightfully different place.
It was called the "Flying Beaver". The name made me chuckle for so many reasons.....I can't imagine a beaver flying, but I did see lots and lots of seaplanes taking off. How cool.
Harbor Air flies out of a place next to the restaurant. It was fun to hear how people fly to Victoria and other places fast, rather then drive.
After we finished lunch I asked how much it cost round trip to fly to Victoria - $210 Canadian, yikes! Not cheap. I think we'll drive. I want to see Buchart Gardens, if possible.
It is so beautiful here now that the sun has come out. Warm and not humid - I could imagine I'm in San Miguel as I sun out in the backyard. Lovely.
RUCO has paid the $1.99 Canadian ransom and "The Tequila Man" and I will be meeting him on Sunday for coffee. Coffee seems to be the national drink of Vancouver. I've never seen so many Starbucks in my life. Nor have I ever been anywhere where every store, shop, business has signs in Chinese. Very unique.
I like the idea of being in a wooded area which is also an island surrounded by water. I saw the fishing fleet of boats yesterday and the canneries. Brought back memories of Cannery Row in California. BUT this was not gentrified.
To have lunch where there were boats, water, and planes was the ultimate. All the things that have been part of my life - always..............and now with a man. Yippee aiy o!
