I had the opportunity twice this spring to get away for a weekend with my husband. Yep, that was two child free weekends!! So while many of you are enjoying a very hot summer vacation, I am going to reminisce back to my spring weekend getaways.

Harrison Hot Springs

The first was a trip to Harrison Hot Springs. There were hot springs, dinner, dancing, walks by the beach, a Sasquatch, and general peaceful child free time. This is a lovely little town and I can't wait to come back again with the little guy. He would love it here. Especially in the summer (insert a fab floating water park right in the middle of this picture in summer).

This trip was in the early spring. So yes, that is a scarf around my neck.

A selfie during a visit to the very 1960s bathroom - check out that mirror behind me.

And of course the morning after picture with a Sasquatch.


After this we spent a leisurely day touring, and shopping , at some local farms. There was cheese, pork, vegetables, and more cheese. Then home for dinner with our little man.


In the late spring when we got away to Sooke, on Vancouver Island. This is one of our favourite places, because it is so close to Sombrio beach along the Juan de Fuca. Which is where we got engaged.

It was sunny!


I clearly love my olive green jacket for weekends away.

Down the beach by those large logs was where he popped the question, and then surfers took our picture a little over 9 years ago.


I love taking pictures of my feet standing on the beach and the surf nipping my toes.


And then sometimes it does more than nip.IMG_5682

But that is okay, because eventually my hubbie wants to explore caves and big rocks. And I get to sit on the beach and enjoy my book and the view. And let my shoes dry out.

Hope you are enjoying a lovely summer!
