the final day of travel ... we've arrived!

Well, Friday was the last day of road-tripping (we are a bit late getting the photos up) and we got to the place we wanted to be: Parksville, BC!!

Although it was a short travel day, it was packed with loads of adventure, including a ferry ride, a freak snow storm(!?!) and the arrival at the farm where we will be staying for the first 10 days of our time here.

I just want to take this opportunity to speak to anyone from the island who may be reading this and apologize to them ... it may well have been our fault that you had snow! We did not mean to bring it with us from Saskatoon, but it may have been a stow-away in our van - whoops!

Here are some photos:

Sierra and Charlene went for a walk-about on the deck ...

Well, we've arrive in Nanaimo and there is snow ... OK then!?!

Sierra has named this one, "Jumper"!

So you're the one that brought all the snow? You don't do things half-way, do you? We got it all the way down here in Portland.

Congratulations on arriving and the start of this new season!
