a good Saturday here in little Port McNeill

......we start with a leisurely wake up.  It was a perfect morning for a drive out to the Quatse River Hatchery.  Keisha's Guide group was having a three day camp out with the Port Hardy troop.  We worked it out for Keish to go most of today.  I'll be picking her up after dinner tonight.  Since we were so close to Hardy, we decided to have lunch & do a little shopping.

The weather just kept getting sunnier & warmer and Ana really had the urge to go swimming.  The boys decided to hang at home with Grandma while Ana & I enjoyed a lovely walked to the pool.

On the walk home I notice that our fire station was all opened up for a fund raiser for " Walk for a Cure".  We ( meaning Liam) loves anything mighty machine ish !  So we slipped our shoes back on for a looky loo.

I was also able to make a little more head way on my gardens........slowly but surely I'm getting done !

( Blackeyed Susan's)

( Cherry tomatoes galore)

( lettuce, celery & rows of chard seeds)

Today is also " Grad night"  at NISS ( North island Secondary School).  Ana, Liam & I wondered down to the corner to take in the traditional parade.  We smiled, waved & cheered on our local grads. A small but very significant tradition for our kids/young adults.  Then it was onto pizza, Spider man 2 and a good game of " Good Guy vs  Bad Guy " out in the yard as the sun sets......Oh what a lovely day !!
