Trip to Vancouver Island

  Boy are we getting behind on our blog posting. We had two excuses to make a fall trip back to the Island. Took the trailer to Antecortez Washington, unhooked and took the truck only through one of our favorite parts of the world, the San Juan Islands. It was a drizly gloomy day but very pleasant watching the whales and the porpoise greet the ferrie..
 Number one excuse was to see my favorite niece Connie Furgason Card.who that day was hosting a demonstration on caligraphy at a local art store in Sydney British Columbia.
Connie lives in Sydney with a view of the Georgia Straight off her balconey although she has since moved to Lethbridge Alberta. Saw many of our old friends at church which was a real treat.
 Second excuse was a visit with our dear friends Karre and Vida Gronnestad just north of Duncan. View of the Island from atop the mountain behind their property.
 Naturally we had to be introduced to her small herd of cows. "Pleased to meet (meat) you.....poop on my shoe and you're between two slices of bread."
While we were serving our mission in Hungary, the Gronnestads were serving in Denmark and recently returned from a humanitarian project in Haiti.
