How do you juggle Blogging and Summertime? 


Over the past two weeks, my husband’s niece from South Africa visited us here in Canada.  Her first visit to us since we left South Africa more than 22 years ago!  We have seen her since we left when we visited South Africa, but it was so nice to have her in Canada and to show her around.

I had to work, so my husband took her to all the most wonderful places in and around Vancouver, too many to name and show pictures, so I will only give some highlights.

They even went on a motorbike trip to Whistler, we do have a Suzuki GSXR750 Crotch rocket (Sport Bike) and we do long distances on it.  Once we did a round trip from Vancouver, Canada to Ashland, Oregon and covered an enormous distance in 10 days.  What fun we had, so he had to take her on a short trip to Whistler.

I managed to take 3 days off work and we took the Ferry for a day trip and visited Vancouver Island, Chemainus, Bouchard Gardens, Victoria, Nanaimo.

Now, tell me in the comments, what you do during your summer period!  I had some posts prescheduled, as I did not want to spend a lot of time on the computer during her very short 2 weeks visit with us.  It paid off, although I apologize if I missed some comments or SM but will try to make it up.  We still have more downtime coming up, during the summer but I will keep everything afloat as best possible.

What do you think, it this a “Plasterman” or a Real Human???

He is human – just so cleverly done!  When you walk past him, he does not move!  He did eventually greet some small kiddos to show all that he is ‘human’ and in fact alive.  He also spoke to us, so I can vouch that he is indeed human.
