A tour of our home away from home.......................

The last 4 days we spent out in the islands on our boat. We were traveling with my brother and SIL, Claudia. We spent 2 days in Chemainus, and then headed up to Nanaimo! The weather was pleasant (until Mon, when Randy and I decided to come home a day early), and it was some great relaxing time.

This is Poet's Cove on Pender Island in Canada where we check in to clear Canadian customs. The only thing there is a marina and a beautiful resort! If you're looking for a unique, romantic get away - try here. It's just a ferry ride away (Or I might know someone you could hire for private boat ride!)

As I was down in the galley doing dishes one night, I realized I have never given you a tour of our boat...................................(the beautiful part is I took all the pictures without taking more than 2 or 3 steps!)

The galley - complete with sink, fridge, freezer, cooktop, stereo, and pantry :-)

The overflow pantry, closet (below), and microwave!!

The Master Bedroom (how many of you can lay in bed and cook at the same time?)

The head (for you non-boaters, the bathroom), the faucet pulls out and goes up on a hook to make a shower - haven't tried that one yet!

The salon (non-boating term, living room)

The Guest bedroom, just like yours at home right - it's where you store extra stuff!

The dining room - formal AND informal!

The back patio and grillin' area........

AND the best part of all.......................THE VIEW!!!

This concludes our tour, thanks for coming along!

I hope you all had a great time. I haven't talked to mom yet and we just rolled into town last night, but I thought about you guys out in the islands while we were gone. We (the kids and I, Gary has to save vacation days for China) leave on Wednesday with mom and dad for Desert Cannon.

I think you should sell your house and live on your boat:) Plenty of room for everyone!
