After a beautiful couple of days in Whistler we drove back to Vancouver where we caught the ferry across to Vancouver Island and to Qualicum Beach where Brian and Vicki live in a beautiful house 5 mins walk from the beach. It was bliss to have my own room and bathroom and i was able to unwind and relax properly for the first time since leaving England in January. I stayed with them for over a week in which time we went to Victoria, Coombs to see the goats on the roof, we walked through Cathedral Grove, we did a 5 mile hike in Mt Washington and we went to the wildlife centre where we saw baby black bears and eagles amongst other things. I cant get over how beautiful it is here. Now im torn between New Zealand and Vancouver, lol.

On the 11th i went to stay with my Great Aunt and Uncle who also live in Qualicum. They took me to a traditional english pub, which made me miss home a little. It has been really good to see all the family on this side of the pond.

After 2 weeks of relaxing i am heading back over to Vancouver mainland with my cousin Lesley where im sure the pace will pick up and i will have to get used to packing and unpacking every couple of days. yay, cant wait.
