After loving goodbyes with Michele, David and Stefanie it was Amtrak to Vancouver. A ‘bit’ of a panic that we would miss our seaplane flight to Nanaimo however some quick talking by me had had whisked through passport control into a taxi for a fast drive to Harbour Air. Easy as! Arrived with plenty of time to spare that we had time to down the complimentary glass of wine, share a turkey sandwich, answer a few questions about my leg braces from a woman with drop foot and video a few seaplanes taking-off and landing. We were now mentally prepared!

Take-off and landing were exactly as we liked … uneventful. The views on take-off, flight and landing were sensational. We even saw 2 whales We were met by Gary and Linda Willis, very close friends of very close friends of ours, Martin and Jan Finning. Gary and Linda had insisted strongly that we stay with them. As the title of that best selling book says, “Let Your Spirit Run Free”, so we did … and … not for a moment have we regretted our decision. Beautiful, easy as people who live in a dream home right on the beach surrounded
by forest. Seals and whales have drifted past since we have been here as well as deer ambling across the grassed areas. Conversation has flowed as if we were long-time friends.
