Well...actually only half of Mayne.
So, I don't think it is accurate
to say that we *conquered* after all.
But, it was the way we felt!
Mayne Island is one of the Gulf Islands off the coast of British Columbia ~
About an hour's sail from the Tsawwassen ferry terminal.
We cycled it. All of us.
What a blessing!
What a miracle!!
The day before Fraser's 13th Birthday,
we went over to Mayne Island for the day.
We walked onto the ferry with our bikes in
the morning, and returned about eight hours later.
Here we are about half way through our cycling adventure...
do we look like we know what we are doing?
Have you ever cycled a little island?
They tend to be hilly.
It seems like so much of it was UP.
As soon as we rode off the ferry we were going up.
Up and up and up.
First stop ~ the Lighthouse
for a picnic and some exploring time.
And, the required photo shoot ~
Of course! :)
Isn't the view from this spot pretty?
And, while the children did some of this...
And some of this...
We did a little of this...
I was feeling it for a few days afterward.
But, it was worth it.
And, I would do it all over again.
Just not anytime too soon ~ LOL!
How about you?
Are you doing anything *special* this Summer?
Our *special* times are being slotted in
a day here and a day there ~ it's been a blessing.
Sometimes it's the very best thing to do.
Whatever you all are up to,
I trust you are enjoying it!
Blessings to you!
