September 16th to December 17th, 2009 - VICTORIA VISITS AND BIRTHDAYS

After a short visit in Vancouver we set sail, via BC Ferries, to Vancouver Island and our home port of Victoria.

Helped friend Alex with some boat projects. Does this count as fixing a boat in an exotic location? Just days before two boats and boathouses burned down to the waterline and this boathouse was badly damaged. I got a moment of fame as I was the only one on the dock the day they came to film a followup story.

Starbucks coffee with niece Kara and her boy friend Jared.

We house & pet sat for our friends Mike and Cathy. The dog Fee Bee is so sweet we almost "dog napped" her.

We visited son Mike, his partner Cori and Grandpuppy Brock. Sandra prepared a vegan birthday cake for Cori's birthday that got rave reviews.

Party for MIL Loretta and son Rob, who share the same birthday. Guests included son Mike's visiting Korean student Sing Gin and Grandpuppies Brock and Bob.

Dinner with Bob and Shelley. Great martinis, wine, scotch (pictured) food and pictures of their travels to Ecuador, Peru and the Galapagos Islands.

Visits to Grandma.
