I thought it was time to write a new post. These are pictures of my family as it looks now. From left to right are Alethea - 14, Gracie - 7, Jasmine - 12, Jack - 17, and Tye - 25. This picture was taken at Englishman River. Tye will be moving out in August to go to university in Nanaimo, which will change the way my at home family will look.









Here they are again at Pipers Lagoon in Nanaimo. This park is a great place to go hiking. The path leads to big rocks that jut right out of the ocean and you climb on top and you get the most beautiful view of the ocean and mountains. We were there a couple of weeks ago and there was so much wind that the waves were crashing against the rocks. When I looked down from the top of the cliff I thought how easy it would be to fall. When the waves crash against the rocks below like that and you look down it makes you a little dizzy. I can't wait until the weather turns nice so we can go swimming in the ocean and lying on the beach.





My friend Judy Quiring was visiting this last week from Saskatchewan. We went to the beach a couple of times, I took her to Englishman River Falls and Little Qualicum Falls. We did my usual 5 km hike a couple of times and we went to the wharf in downtown Nanaimo. I have been there once before and there are such cute shops there. We ate lunch one day at the wharf at a floating fish and chips place. They serve their fish from that day's catch. It was so good. We also spent one day walking around Qualicum Beach. She loved all the shops down town. I love showing people around my home town and actually having something to show them that is more interesting than the local restaurant or the schools. In Martensville I could have shown people Henry's Cafe or the Corner Store. Maybe the Police Station or the woodlands behind the elementary school. Oh, I forgot about the (lake) on the West end of Matensville. Apparently a dog drowned in that lake many years ago. His name was Spike so now the locals call it Spike Lake. Calling that puddle a lake is about as hilarious as calling Blackstrap a mountain. Don't get me wrong. Saskatchewan is a great place to come from. It has many beautiful things to offer. My parents, my sister, my brothers, their families, my friend, and we can't forget Loon Lake. That is truly a beautiful place to go camping. I apologise to all you prairie people for talking this way about your chosen place to live. I guess I just can't get enough of this country. I sometimes still catch my breath when Mount Arrowsmith shines white and beautiful on a sunny day or when I drive on the highway to Nanaimo and I see the ocean stretch out on one side and the mountains standing tall on the other and the amazing amount of trees that grow three times as tall as prairie trees. So forgive me for talking negatively about the prairies and bragging up BC, but I really do feel so thankful for this part of Canada.

I also feel that way although this spring we can't really brag about the weather. It has been nice for about a week and other than that our high if we're lucky has been 18??? Now THAT SUCKS!! I know you can't have everything but a little sunshine right now would go a long way let me tell you!! (by the way...about that comment you made..I seem to recall that the last 8 times for sure that I have talked to you, it's been me calling you and not the other way around. I bet you don't even remember my number. SO THERE!!)

Becky said...

Tyler's not 25. He's only 12 right? RIGHT? Jeez.

jude said...

Hey Margaret, I love your post, and picture's. Tell the girls how sorry I am that I didn't get a chance to say goodbye! I had such a great time with ya all!!

Krystal said...

Just remember, when a tsunami comes, that's one of the first places to go under. We'll still be safe :p. Just kidding. I know how you feel about loving the ocean and the mountains. :D

Margaret said...

hey, I can swim, but I can't fly, which is what you need to do with all the tornadoes. And unitl that tzunami hits, I get to see the most beautiful country in the world. LOL

Melanie said...

Hmm, I remember living there with Peter and every time we'd drive anywhere, he'd always say "Babe. Look at that! Look!" in a rather commanding tone, as though if I didn't, the car may explode, or worse, we'd have marital problems...He's so funny. So I'd look at the mountains across the passage, or the ocean, or one of a million bald eagles flying around and we'd say how blessed we were to live in such a beautiful place. I can't wait to move back. I really cant.
It is very nice here though. It's been raining in the evening, so the rolling hills surrounding Gillette are really green, and I've seen a couple of AMAZING thunderstorms roll in off the prairies. When the sky turns all black and huge thunderheads roll in over those bright green hills and lightening is everywhere, I am happy for a few moments, that I'm not in BC. Plus it's been about +20-25 every day here, and even sometimes up to +30, and my computer just changed fonts in the middle of me typing. That's wierd.

Carol said...

Nice to see you post some family pictures. All the best of luck with Tyler going to school. You really do need to come over for coffee sometime ya know!!!

Melanie said...

You are, at this very moment, in my mother's kitchen, with cinnamon rolls from Coombs market, likely holding my nephew. And drinking TIM HORTONS COFFEE!!! I just wanted you to know that today, I'm rather upset with you. Very upset Auntie Margaret.
Oh, happy birthday by the way!! Hope you had a wonderful time.
Yep, very angry indeed.

Avaelyn said...

I can hardly believe that I live here, too... I've hardly been to the beach, but it just never actually occurs to me to go there, because I forget that I live RIGHT by the ocean! Kyle and I went to Parksville beach the other day and went wading, and sat there wondering why we hadn't come there earlier... didn't stay long because the hockey game was on soon, and I wasn't feeling great, but still... I hope some of my friends come and visit so I can show them the cool place that I live in... :)

I remember the corner store in Martensville... sleeping over at Cindi and Jen's and walking over to get some candy, and Archie comics and Tiger Beat magazines (honestly, I just went for the candy... was never in to Archie or plastering pictures of boys all over my room) Saskatchewan is cool, and I still love that I grew up in the little town of Osler... and even though Kyle bugs me about being a little Saskatchewan hick, it's alright... I just kick him.

Carol said...

WTG Carrie, and remember, your Dad is a SK hick too, so if he says it again, then just tell Dad. :o)

Avaelyn said...

*giggle* I'll be sure to do that, Mom. We'll all go beat him up.

John said...

Nice pics Tuts. Great looking family. I hope to get to the island this summer, so you can show me around.

Cindi said...

You know, tomorrow will be exactly one month since you last posted. I need an update before I don't have the internet for a month.

John said...

I'm with Cindy. Very soon you will remind me of a certain nephew who shall remain nameless, cause somebody promised to stop picking on him.
