_With Geno (Louise’s nephew) coming to our aide by being our “General Handyman Contractor/Painter”, we started repairing and pretty-ing up the rental. Now I must admit, I was TOTALLY surprised as to the mess our renters left us in, but as I’ve recently found out, maybe a messy divorce is or was the reason and we got caught in the middle. Whatever it was, we’ve got Geno on the job… Now we’ve got one more item we’ve got to face…OUR 50th !!!
_We decided that what we wanted to do was to gather the family together, grab the Hydrofoil to Victoria, BC. for 3 days of FEASTING, FUN and ADVENTURE !!!
_After arriving Friday, all of us jumped onto one of those “tiny water taxis” and enjoyed a wonderful dinner celebrating our anniversary at a great restaurant alongside the bay in Victoria. Then early the next morning we all boarded a van and headed up to Soot, BC. for an afternoon of “ZIP-LINING”. Our 7 grandkids (hell, they’re not kids anymore 14-21) were the first to get all suited up and head for the practice run and then it was the BIG KIDS turn.

Joelle, Leslee, Louise, and Mikleane What I quickly found out, is that I’m not great at taking pictures while someone is flying by at tree top levels hanging by a small line, but I still tried. What was impossible was taking a picture while I was on the line. Fortunately there was a camera set up for a quick flyby and that’s how I got my picture taken while doing some acrobatics…
