Back from Salt Spring


Leaving town and doing something really relaxing for a few days, right before Christmas?  Best idea we've had in ages.  And the resort was just what we needed: we had a cabin all our own, with an ocean view, a wood stove, and a barbecue.  Firewood was free, as were the bikes and the rowboat, but there was purposely no TV and no phone in the cabins (although you could rent a TV).  Perfect.  I got spa treatments, soaked in mineral water, and watched the fire.

Chris had a good birthday.  He got a Lego game from my siblings (Creationary, the Lego version of Pictionary), and he spent most of his birthday building Lego.  (Well, and we went to a restaurant for its Global Curry Night, which made it a red-letter day for Chris.)

He spent a lot of the day building with Lego

On our last night there, Chris decided that it would be really pretty to have a big, roaring fire.  Of course, that made the cabin way too hot for Chris to handle. I think I'll keep him.

Insert totally in appropriate comment about too hot here.

I love that Chris spent his birthday building Lego.

jo(e): Seriously. He was so happy. It was his second Lego birthday in a row (last year he got a Mindstorm robot). By the way, everywhere I went on Salt Spring Island, I kept thinking "Jo(e) would love this place."
