first solids

"What's going on?"


"I'm not sure about this stuff."


"But the spoon sure is fun."


"Hm, maybe this stuff is ok after all, at least when the most fascinating person in the world (aka Anders) feeds it to me."


"Doesn't taste as good if Mama feeds it to me."

Tsa-Kwa-Luten Lodge

We had lunch on the deck at the Tsa-Kwa-Luten Lodge. The Lodge reminded me a bit of Costanoa, where we got married.



On the deck, Soren enjoyed his high chair...

...and the view was gorgeous.




Anders and I found a cool piece of outdoor art...


...and wandered along a nice path.


After that, Anders and Sigrid split an enormous piece of chocolate cheesecake (ok, maybe I helped a bit, too).

Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre

After packing up and leaving Taku (sniff, sniff), we visited the Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre. No cameras were allowed, so I have no pics of the exhibits. But here are some pics from a resting spot across the street.


Canadian videos

We interrupt this recounting of our Quadra Island fun to bring you two important video updates.

First, Anders shows he was born to be in the brass section.


Second, the video version of Soren's tripod:


That is all. We now return you to our regular Quadra Island programming.

horseshoes

Before leaving Taku, we took a walk around the grounds to see what we might have missed. We found some horseshoe pits.

Rebecca Spit

We went out to Rebecca Spit for a picnic dinner. For the picnic, we sat on the Quadra Island-facing side of the spit.




This is my "catalog photo" pose.


After dinner, we walked over to the east-facing side.



Fun is exhausting

We spent the afternoon at Lynne and Steve's place, which is absolutely gorgeous.





Both boys had a great time, and fell asleep as soon as we started driving back to Taku.

Taku

Two nights on Quadra Island, with lovely accommodations at the Taku Resort.

Car Ferry

We made it to the ferry to Quadra Island with mere minutes to spare (thus avoiding an hour wait).



BC Forest Discovery Centre

On our way to Quadra Island, we stopped at the BC Forest Discovery Centre in Duncan.


We saw big logging equipment...


...and old trucks...


...and steam engines...

...and lots of other cool stuff.



Oh, and more trucks!




Then, after lunch, we rode a train...


...across a trestle...

...and then took in some more sights...


...before riding the train back to the starting point.
