Jam Packed for the Month of October!
Thanksgiving in Courtenay
In the summer we camped in Comox Valley and visited
family. We were told to come back for the big burn in the
When we got to the farm, we found out the marshmallow roasting
sticks had gone missing! We can't have a camp fire without
marshmallows so we took a tractor ride down to the lower field to
cut some sticks from young alder trees. The kids loved the
ride in the bucket.
The fire was actually started in afternoon
and has slowly burned down to massive pile of coals. The
heat thrown off
was enormous. My aunt Jennifer had kindly cooked a meal and
we enjoyed dinner around a massive campfire.
We missed a day of Chinese class so we spent some time in a hotel
studying. In the afternoon we visited the Shamrock Farm to
look at the pumpkins.
The kids school do a Halloween Event/Fundraiser every year where
they decorate the school and the kids get lots of treats.
Sunshine Coast Art Crawl
I had heard of the Sunshine Coast Art Crawl the year before when we
did a long weekend trip in
Davis Bay on the Sunshine Coast
. Some of the studios
were open on that weekend, but the art crawl brochure promised more
than 100 artists showing! A few months in advance I booked
reservations for the ferries and we made a weekend out of it!
This year we were invited by Nara's friends parents to join them in
Douglas Park Area for some trick or treating.
Douglas Park is a zoo. There are sometimes line ups to get to
the front door. The sidewalks are crowded with parents and
strollers. It's great fun!
