Quadra Island 2010

We had yet another fabulous two weeks up on Quadra Island this year.
We spend our days reading (more on that later), walking Rebecca Spit, floating in the ocean, boating (and pulling up the "pawn taps" {prawn traps} as Denay liked to say), laughing, playing Sequence and hanging out.
My youngest brother flew out from Edmonton to surprise my parents (we were in on it) and a week later my other young brother joined us as well. It was so nice to see Denay spending time with her Uncle's.
Trevor caught a respectable sized salmon (which we fully plan to have candied, yummy!) and the biggest event of all, our two-year-old pooped on the potty. I caught her trying to go on Friday and asked if she wanted to go on the toilet and she finally did it! We've yet to repeat the success but just picture four adults crammed into a very small trailer bathroom hooting in excitement for a twoonie sized poo.
We also found a lovely freshwater lake just a 30 minute boatride from us, complete with soft white sand and lake temperature waters......too bad we didn't find out about it until the last two days! We also took a day to roadtrip to Parksville for the sandcastle competition and a hilarious game of minigolf that I happened to win.
I digress......enjoy the pictures, there's some goodies in there, and feel free to click on the collages to enlarge them and get a better look!
