lidyvps Something went terribly wrong with my birthday cake... (I don't want to talk about it ). The taste was good, but it looked awful, a disaster for the eyes. But I'm happy to have a loving and forgiving family ! Happy birthday Fieneke! My first one turns 20 today, yesterday was a lovely party despite of the cake! hope your Monday was a good start of the week!

lidyvps I always wonder how people can make supermoon look like supermoon without cheating... I guess you didn't guess this was supermoon. But it is. And it was a super evening as well with a great view on the beach of Tsa Kwa Luten.

lidyvps It's good to be home again, I missed the Mr. and the girls. I was so happy to see them again, they made a wonderful dinner for me and a delicious cheese cake, so this is my advice: go on holiday on your own sometimes. And especially to a beautiful place as Vancouver Island. I'm struggling with a huge jetlag, but I have my pictures... ️Have a wonderful weekend, lovely people!

lidyvps I should be in Vancouver now, but I'm not. We're in a pretty nice motel now. Very close to the airport. Unpleasant surprise: very close to the wrong airport .
Goodbye Vancouver Island!

lidyvps Found this small inukshuk a couple of days ago on the beach of Tsa'Kwa'Luten, Quadra Island. Beautiful island, great resort, nice people.
Today it's my last day on wonderful Vancouver Island. I enjoyed every minute, I'll miss you! I hope to come back once! Fortunately I took hundreds and hundreds of pictures, so I have a few to share . Don't know how things will go next week. My Canada trip isn't over yet. Tomorrow I'm traveling to Ontario for a family visit. I'm afraid they don't have wifi, and maybe it's better that way. See you, lovely friends!

lidyvps What would you do: whale watching, bear watching, or fog watching?
It's all possible in Tofino!

lidyvps I will never ever call a Dutch collection of trees a forest again, after seeing this mighty ancient forest...

lidyvps I like to keep in contact, a little, with my Instagram world during my holiday. I really love your comments, forgive me for not always replying or keeping up with your feeds. Imagine me every day in a different motel room. Sometimes good, sometimes hmm not so good, but always with bad wifi , and my travel company knows there's an app called Instagram, but that's all; and I don't want to look too addicted . Is it Monday today? Hope you had a great start of the week.
And thanks so much Tyler @tylerforesthauser for pointing me to Mystic Beach!

lidyvps I can hardly believe I'm here. What a beautiful island! Rain forest, the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. And: fog ! This is in the middle of lovely nowhere: Port Renfrew. Probably a nice place, but it was all covered in fog!
Hope you're all doing well!

lidyvps Good evening lovely people! I'm sorry for being so absent lately... Tomorrow is my last working day before my trip to Canada and I need to do all the packing now . On Tuesday I'll arrive in Vancouver, and the day after on Vancouver Island.
Dear Canadian friends, or anyone else who spent some time over there: do you have any suggestions for a visit? I've been there before, 5 years ago, so I know the top sites. What are your personal favorites? Thanks a million in advance!
And if you're there and see an old (sort of ) Dutch girl with a camera, chasing light and fog - it could be me!

lidyvps Thank you very much, dear friends, for your warm and kind words. It's been an emotional week and it still is. I should be preparing now for holidays, but I'm waiting for the right mood. Only a few days of hard working, and then Canada...! Have a wonderful evening 1mon
