This place is about 6 hours from Victoria, and then a 20 minute boat ride. It took us about 10 hours to get there due to an easily distracted driver and having to push the van up a snowy incline. But it was a great week- surrounded by ocean and mountains and trees and good people. It felt so good to be out in the woods again, and it felt like a little taste of Beacon, which I have been pining for since moving out here. I feel like God is a good giver of gifts and He knows what we need.
We chopped wood, fixed insulation, sorted books, planted grass, played with dogs, ate food, made cookies, played apples to apples, played with kids, drank a lot of hot chocolate, got rained on ... and got rained on some more.It's an incredible place. Anyways, here's some pictures!
Ready to tackle some insulation.
On the way there. We got a lot of help from the guys.
The shoe stump.
Setting prawn traps.
Rubber boot boat feet.
This is probably less than half of all the books we sorted.
Under the buildings, feeling a little bit claustrophobic.
