My basil plant had become huge once again, so I trimmed it and...
Washed and dried
Packed and vacuum sealed
Found a use for that large container all my plastic storage containers came in. Fits perfectly across. I will try to fill this with fresh herbs.
My Dill, the tall one was also getting top heavy
Washed, vacuumed and sealed also
After doing some running around on the island we stopped to get the mail, expecting my patio heater which I purchased with AirMiles to arrive any day. No delivery tag in the box but we did have 2 cheques from ICBC for the cancellation of the RV Insurance, nice.
Pulling up to the house we notice a box against the front door - must be the patio heater. Yup it was.
Brad and Robbie went for a walk along the waterfront while I put the heater together...
Seems a decent quality one too.
Once that was done, I headed down to the waterfront to catch up with the guys. I took the Jeep down as sometimes Robbie has trouble with his left paw. As I was getting out of the car I hear " Hi Katie"... Stacey was sitting there enjoying the view. Well, I could see Brad and Robbie in the distance and got his attention as he got up to leave and he joined us.
We decided it was calm enough to do some paddleboarding and Brad & I ran home to get the truck, we then stopped to pick up Stacey and headed to her house to collect the boards.
Robbie is not sure what to make of this. He is not fond of water.
Attaching the ankle chain
And she's on
And away we go, around the point - past the pub and return...
Brad & Robbie walked along the shoreline
Clearly, I'm a professional.... Not.
Absolutely beautiful as the sun begins to go down
Enjoying the scenery
On our way back, Brad didn't get any pics of us as we sat down in the bay relaxing for a few minutes. Here we are on our way back.
Watching Mum on the water
Which one is the mother? Me or the dog? He's such a worrier.
Stacey overtaking me
Beautiful sunsets which this island is known for, pictures don't do it justice.
Otters swimming in the water
After paddleboarding, we decided to grab chairs and a few drinks and join Stacey on the shore and enjoy the sunset as we haven't done this yet and its a thing here.... 3 months and never seen the sunset from the shore yet.
BC Ferry going to Vancouver
Another distant ferry
This guy we call 'thumper' as he makes a thumping noise that we have been hearing at the house for months now... but we had never seen him up close like this.
