Tried and true

Have you ever noticed that sometimes there is one ride/route above all others that lifts your spirits and gets your head on straight again?  

I have two such rides.  And tonight I decided that I needed to do one.  

A quick blast to the ice cream shack at Qualicum Beach was the remedy of the day.  25 min up the road.  Perfect weather. Awesome company.  

Ahhhhhhhh. A great night for a ride. 

Travel insurance



For those of you who do not know, I live in the Province of British Columbia in Canada.  Sometimes my travels take me outside of my home province and with that, I understand that my medical coverage might be lacking.  Quite recently I have discovered how lacking that is.  From what I understand, BC medical coverage (and one other province) has the lowest rates for provincial coverage in Canada.  This means, if I travel to Alberta and get sick, my provincial coverage is not enough and I will incur extra costs regarding this. 

Where can you get extra coverage?  Some people get coverage through their local Automobile Association. Some people have coverage through work.  I opted to contact one of my local travel agents because in my reasoning, hey! you people do this all the time so you should know what you are talking about.    Low and behold, they did!

I was surprised at how affordable it was as well.  For the cost of $41 I am covered for my entire foray outside my province and have piece of mind as well.  I know. I know.  A small thing – but still one less thing I have to worry about.

Sunny Sunday

Slow Sundays always hold a special place in our hearts. The chance to sit on a porch and take a breath. A time to relax, watch the world slowly move by. Sunday seems to be the time when a change takes over people.  It is a day of yardwork, family time, ‘me-time’, gathering together, enjoying company and sharing.

If you close your eyes and listen, the signs of life on a Sunday are all around. You just have to listen
