I remember thinking my parents and grandparents were odd for being tired when we had done nothing but travel to a new place. I so get it now! I’m exhausted from a day of traveling.

We got up and moving quickly this morning and made the drive to Gibsons. We grabbed coffee and a sweet and then wandered the streets. Unfortunately we learned that lots of stores and restaurants are closed on Wednesdays in this town, including our favourite ones:(

A cool rooftop in this seaside town.

We ended up grabbing lunch at the same place we went to last year. I had a Mediterranean tuna sandwich. While I have not gotten outright sick, my stomach is definitely not happy with all this eating out. I’ll be happy to get back to my more normal eating tomorrow.

It took us no time to get to the ferry terminal, but unfortunately the ferry was a half hour late. We did finally get on and I was happy to discover they had oat milk so I could have a cup of tea.

The drive home was interminable as traffic was barely moving:(. We did finally make it.

I was very happy to see my house. I checked the mail, but there was no happy mail. I got the heel done on the sock I have been working on and then re-did the start of the brioche cowl I was working on before I left. I didn’t realize that I had twisted the cast on:(

It has been a quiet afternoon in front of the fan, but that was quite enjoyable.

I did make myself do a workout as I feel like all we’ve done is eat for the past four days and I must be at least ten pounds heavier than when I left on Sunday! The workout was a NourishMoveLove and I was dripping with sweat so we will call it a success!

I’m off to sleep in my own bed, oh so happily!

Have fun!

  1. I am finding the older I get, the more tired I become from travelling. It is hard to believe that when I was between the ages of 20 and 40 and working in well drilling, I used to drive big rigs to job sites sometimes 10-12 hours away. I could never do that now.

    I am a fair ways from anywhere there is a ferry. The times when I have gone a ferry, I always found it so fascinating. Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    1. Yup I used to arrive somewhere and be raring for adventures, now I need a nap.
      The ferry is always cool as there’s a chance to see orca whales, but waiting for ferries isn’t fun!
