Away from home

8/4/06 entry – but had no connectivity.

Just like any trip away from home, the travel day leaves a lot to be desired. We were up early in the morning to do the airport scene. First leg was Indy to Atlanta. Second leg landed us in Vancouver, BC where we endured a long line to get the passport stamped, and then moved to another ungodly line to pick up the van we rented. By the time the all the queuing was complete and we arrived where we were to catch the ferry to the Sunshine Coast, we had missed our reservation and had to wait for over two hours to get ferried to our destination. Once there, we did enjoy a nice meal in a local establishment, and then moved on to our accommodations where reunions with my aunt and her daughters, and my uncle ensued. The enjoyable part of the trip had now begun, and we spent the evening engaged in conversation.

Is all the travel worth it? You bet! The wonderful people who set up the cottage we are staying in have a beautiful garden. The scenery around us is magnificent. Deb said it is inspiring, and I couldn’t agree more. The smells of all the flowers around us stir up the memory banks and help conjure up pleasant scenes from the past. The cottage has an old smell too it. Not the old that is unpleasant, but it is the old of wisdom, the old of fond memories, the old of things that we could cling to as it instructs us of all that we have forgotten about with all the gadgetry and technology we so frequently submerge ourselves into. Back to the simplicity of healthy, imagination stirring nature. Yeah, I’m surrounded by the sage that inspires you to reach beyond the existence you have settled with.

Here are a few pictures Veronica took from the ferry on our way over.

And these are the pictures I took this morning to show the view that greets us each morning from these magnificent accommodations. 

If you are every travelling to the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, send me an email and I can give you the number for the place I stayed.  The owners are going to start renting the cottage we were in for the summers.  It really is a beautiful location.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
