We've had the boys here this weekend, so I haven't had a minute to myself, but it's always fun! Yesterday there was a community picnic in Drummond Park ... apparently it used to be a much bigger event called 'Fulford Day,' but not anymore. We had a great time, though! First of all, the boys had to show off their acrobatic skills ... this is Gibson trying to pretend he knows how to do a head-stand:
And then River showed us that he really does know how to do a cartwheel:
And then, of course, their 61-year-old 'Papa' can't be outdone:
... a feat which earned him a 'tackle' (read: no mercy):
... and a challenge to a foot race....
.. which River had no trouble winning! Otherwise, he passes the time being a typical 12-year-old:
And I wandered off and found (finally, I've been looking since we got here!) the world-famous Fulford Harbour petroglyph:
This petroglyph was purposely moved from its original location -- apparently right about where we are! -- about 30 years ago to better preserve it from the elements. It's on a huge rock, which was placed between the bases of two trees in Drummond Park. I'm glad it's hard to find, because so many of these have been vandalized, or just weathered beyond recognition. This one depicts a seal, of course .... and notice how one eye is different than the other?
I'll walk on the ferry with the boys this morning, and Mischa will meet me in Schwartz Bay to collect them. Then Michael and I might go off the dock for a little cruise for a day or two .... it's our 32nd wedding anniversary tomorrow. :-)
