We'd relax and enjoy a cup of coffee while planning the rest of the day. (Isn't it interesting how quickly we humans find routines?)
It was a small market and was mostly crafts with a few vendors selling retail items, and still fewer with produce. That was surprising and a bit of a disappointment.
But the view from the market was beautiful!
If the wood is still in the water, it is fair game, which seems reasonable to me. I'm sure the boaters and swimmers appreciate the removal of obstacles.
We had our lunch in a park beside the ocean as we had my uncle's dog Trixie with us.
She is about 16 years old and has both hearing and sight loss. Uncle G golfs three times a week so B takes care of Trixie while he's out on the course.
She's a sweet girl, very friendly and laid back.
That evening we went for dinner with Uncle G and his friend J at a nearby restaurant. After a lovely dinner, B, G and I went over to Parksville beach hoping to catch a glimpse of passing cruise ships. We apparently missed them but not the sunset.
But I'm pretty sure I'd be to sacrifice some space to have the opportunity to live in piece of paradise. I told B this area reminds of my years in Northern Saskatchewan, except with mountains and amenities!
Have a great day everyone!
