Happy Easter

Easter Hip Hop! to you all



Hope the Easter Bunny was good to you all. We are all up on Cortes Island except Jenny, she had to stay back and work. We had real spring weather with anything from rain/snow/hail/thunder and more....
We had 4-5 inches of hail one morning. Dave and Lynn (Lisa's parents) also came up and Dave cooked up a wonderful lamb roast one night.

One day we had a scavangers hunt on the beach "boys against the girls" and the winners were the boys!!!!




Well the girls did not to bad they came in second :)



Easter Sunday was great with lots of treats for the little ones....... and the big ones.

We sold the house… Now the move.




As I’m writing this blog Liz and I are sitting in the ferry lineup on Cortes Island with our moving truck heading back to Victoria. We came up yesterday (Sunday 16th March) with a full load of furnitures and stuff. (Picture is of some sealinons on a log boom by denman Island)

Well since the last blog a lot has happened. When we were up skiing we got an offer in on our house and it is now sold. Liz has been crazy busy packing and sorting everything while I have been working. In the evenings we have then moved stuff with our van. (picture is of fishing boats at Qualicum Beach fishing for hering)

As you may or may not know we bough a nice little condo back in November of 07 and we did a few little renos and are now pretty well moved in. The condo is two bedroom and two baths and has a den that we use for office. We quite like the place and it has a 30ft south west facing balcony making the whole suite nice and bright.

My last day at work will be the 19th of April and we are both looking forward to that day. It’s coming up fast. This spring we will be traveling to Europe for a visit and this summer we will do a quick trip out to the prairies to visit my family.

We’ll keep you posted.

Hugs from Liz and Anders

PS. The moving co-ordinator (Liz) says we have the following items for sale: dining room talble and 8 chairs, Italian leather couch and love seat, wood armoire, large wool carpet, old singe sewing machine in wood cabinet, retro crecent shaped couch, one filing cabinet, berber rug, punching bag (freestanding) old dresser, 2005 PT Cruiser.

Last Day On The Mountain








What a fantastic day we had today. Not a cloud in the sky and about -2C. It was one of those days when you don't want to stop skiing.

It looks like I'm back on skis again after snowboarding for 6 years. During this week I have snow boarded twice. I rented some new Demo skis and boots and it is amazing how good equipment helps. Check out more pictures and movie clips below.

Tomorrow we go home again after a week up here. We hear the cherry blossom is in full bloom in Victoria. Going away for a week this time of year and there can be dramatic changes in flowers blooming. We will take our time driving home doing some sightsing and maybe looking at some trucks & boats.



































Till next time....

Liz and Anders
