After a particularly stressful few weeks, I used Mother's Day as an excuse to hop on a ferry, and zoom zoom up the coast for a little family time. Of course, it always sounds easier than it is...
My ferry was over 45 minutes late, and when I got there an hour before sailing, there was already 70% of the boat claimed! So, after waiting and waiting, I finally caught my 7:20pm ferry some time around ten past eight.
A little hungry, perhaps a tad cranky, but I got on the ferry, so I was a happy camper to finally be moving. I watched the sun set over the rails, and let the warm breeze kiss my face.
Have I mentioned it's been raining here in Vancouver since the dawn of time? We finally got some sun!
After finally arriving at Casa Familia, there was a cold beverage waiting for me ( even if I did expect to be enjoying that drink a good 2 hours earlier). The phone went on silent, the feet went up, and the stories began, as one might do when mixed with people full of great memories.
