After my first fight with breast cancer, I felt a real need to go somewhere fun with my family. So we took our 10 & 7 year olds to Disneyland. Not very original but it was indeed fun, and W-A-R-M! The past 2 years we traveled to Whistler for a skiing trip. Last year was a unique experience because we were in Whistler just before the start of the Paraolympic Games. Excitement was in the air.
This year, with one boy now in University and unable to join us, we decided to go up-island to my parents' beachhouse. It was so enjoyable (and relaxing) to be away from crowds! We hiked by Rosewall Creek, found a pod of sea lions in Fanny Bay,
walked on the beach,
and I even got to practice my beloved Bikram Yoga. I love my little island on the Pacific!
... and now, it's back to work!
