Beautiful British Columbia

We are having a great family holiday in British Columbia.  We are very thankful for the relatives out here that are letting us stay with them.  I was here in February having appointments to get my back fixed.  We have also had appointments while we are out here again this time.  I am going to write a post about the specialist that we DSCF0211are seeing.  Currently there is no Doctor that does this specialty in Saskatchewan.  Thankfully I am getting better with each visit.  It will be great to feel like myself again.

Yesterday we travelled out to the island, it is beautiful.  My husband lived in Sidney for a few years as a child.  We found his old house, DSCF0190school and locations that held special memories.  We also visited a castle.  Wow, how people once lived is just amazing.  3/4 of the house was the family living space and 1/4 of the house was the servants side.DSCF0159 

I loved the book holder that also had a place to hold a candle so you could read.  I think the library was my favourite room in the Castle.  That or the smoking room.  Not sure why I like the look of dark wood and leather furniture.  The girls really enjoyed the tour as well, it was four stories high and at the very top was a look out that you could see the city of Victoria, the ocean and the mountains.  Beautiful.

I have to admit that I miss the 31 Day Challenge.  It was great for keeping me focused.  But my online Bible Study is coming soon, so I am going to be studying scripture from my book in order to effectively teach the course.  I am going to start with studying Psalm 139.

Well, we are off for more appointments.  I will keep updating about our trip.

  3. looks like you enjoyed yourself...awesome!!:0)

  4. Welcome to the Island! I live at the other end.(5-6 hour drive)
    It would have been nice to hook up with you for coffee in's hard when there's so many relatives to see; we don't get to Vancouver often and my hubby's family is scattered from Whiterock to Abottsford to New West Minster. Victoria(South Island) sure is beautiful especially when all the Spring bulbs start to bloom. If you have time and like bugs, go to the bug museum...its cool and I don't even like bugs.
    I'll be praying for you!
    Together in Christ,

  5. Looks BEE-U-TIFUL!!! Love it, Carolyn!
