On Boxing day we once again hit the road (which unfortunately included a ferry ride) to head to the Island where Tim’s family is. We made a quick stop at their home in Nanaimo before heading out with everybody toward Mackenzie Beach Resort in Tofino. Tim’s parents booked the same cabin we rented a couple years ago in the fall, so it was kind of nice to have a familiar place to spend Christmas. If it isn’t at home, it may as well be somewhere you’ve been before! I was the first outsider to join their Christmases two years ago, and this year Amy joined us on the 27th when we all exchanged our gifts.
We spent three days there, and most of it was spent lounging around, playing games or going for walks on the beach.
One of the afternoons we went for a good walk on the Wild Pacific Trail. I’ll be honest and say the two hour trek really did me in, but it was beautiful. Michelle borrowed an Ergo from a friend in Victoria and we all took turns carrying Calvin. Now I really want one!
And that was our week with Tim’s family.
