Oh Canada!

Ok, so this is a couple of weeks late. Better late than never!

We went to Canada (Lund, BC to be exact) over Labor Day weekend and it was AWESOME!!! We had such a great time being with family, in cool weather, spending time outdoors, on the water almost every day, feeding milk bones to teeth-chattering, cone wearing dogs and eating lots of yummies. It's looks pretty much what you imagine the Pacific Northwest looks like. And there were seals and sea lions all over the place. The seals would pop their little heads up out of the water every now and then and look around. There are really not enough words to describe how enjoyable and wonderful it was. Enjoy the pictures! (They only took me 2 days to figure out how to upload).
Our first stop in Canada (after the main terminal and the south terminal of the Vancouver Airport). We had a great lunch with fresh fruit and smoked salmon and salads, walked around, ran into Isaac's cousin and blew off a cabbie. All in all a great introduction to Canada!
The plane for our 20 minute flight from the south terminal of the Vancouver Airport to Powell River.
This is the airport in Powell River. No, seriously, it really is.
This is where you get your luggage at the airport. There is a little garage door that has a little wooden ramp in front of it where you get your luggage. The guys basically open the door and put your luggage on the ramp.
The road from Powell River toward Craig Road (That's Isaac's aunt's car in the front there).
Isaac's aunt's store is up there on the second floor (right above Nancy's bakery). Can you see the Pollen Sweaters sign?
The view from the shop. Not too shabby...
I am a spectacular photographer. That right there would be a sea lion jumping from his warm spot on the rocks into the water.

Oh no! We seem to have a problem here! A crab is attacking Isaac!
We found a kitty on the beach! He's Canadian.
Sunset from Savary Island

This is where Isaac and I stayed. It's a cabin that Isaac's cousin bought from a resort down the road. The cabin came complete with all of the furniture in it. Isaac's grandparents once stayed in this exact cabin. Cool, eh? No electricity though, so we basically slept there and that was it. It was nice though. And dark.
Me on the boat - what a life. Isaac's uncle built the boat!
Savary Island from the hike we took near Lund.
Hiking near Lund. Pretty, eh?

Savary Island
. We almost got lost on the island and would have missed our plane back to Vancouver. Oh darn!
The view from the puddle jumper from Powell River to Vancouver. We just stared out the window the entire 20 minutes of the flight - both there and back.
