Powell River

Powell River is a silent little city that my sister and her family lives near. There are two ferry terminals that you can use to get to off this rock towards more civilization. The summer months are absolutely beautiful here.


My sister is right on the water with a view of the ocean and Texada island. Her home could be a Bed & Breakfast if she wanted.


I spent the morning enjoying a coffee as the boats sailed by. It was a great way to start my day. But my allergies were not being my friend.


For lunch, we drove out to Beach Hut Fish & Chips.  It was recommended by a friend of mine. Boy, was it delicious. Some of the best deep fried goodies I have had in ages.


After lunch, we drove to the end of Highway 101 to a bakery that my sister recommended.  $48 in cinnamon buns for tomorrow’s breakfast were picked up.  Our car smelled heavenly for the 45 minute drive back to my sister’s home.


This afternoon is pretty much the same as the morning. Only it’ll be a cold beverage and a deck chair as I enjoy the views. My kids are down exploring the rocks and the ocean while I write this.  

This quick getaway visiting my family is exactly what I needed to start my vacation time. Now to get back to lounging and doing nothing.
