Are first summer on Vancouver Island

Our first family vacation this summer was to Parksville. The weather was cool but still sunny.
Lovely sandy beach. Aren't the mountains in the back ground breathtaking?!
We bought Sam a "skin board" (something new to me)
he had alot of fun trying to learn it.

I think he had more fun being buried in the sand.

This week has finally warmed up on the island. Hot and sunny with no humidity just how
i like it! Back home in Ontario (and Quebec) they are all sizzling. Can't say i miss those high
temperatures in the 40's. Sam would be camping out in the basement along with the pets.
We took a trip out to Lake Cowichan.
Sam tried Kayaking and loved it.

Lake Cowichan goes on for miles it's as big as the great lakes in Ontario.
I love the way the mountains surround it.

Of course you can't go to the beach without tubing!

He's just loving this...

Wishing you all a fun weekend in the sun!
