    Had a lovely time! My bro was celebrating his 75th birthday so we had a delightful party and I got to see my bro & spouse, niece, 2 nephews, 2 great nephews and my great niece. On my way there, I met "dreamer" from our quilting board and we had a lovely visit. BLESS HER! She had all kinds of fleece fabric for me - we loaded up my already pretty well loaded vehicle! (I left most with my son on my way north as I figured the border patrol would tear my car apart with that much stuff in it! He will bring it to me early in June).
    During the visit, bro, nephew and I went out and collected 15 gallons of oysters for the party dinner - which also had burgers & hot dogs, salmon, prawns, and halibut (all seafood local and fast frozen the day it was caught
    so was SO, SO good!). Talk about seafood heaven! Here are a couple of pics of the clan.

    Geez, what a nice looking family. They look like the kind of people I know - you sure we haven't met? Glad to hear you had a good visit. By your description of the trip, and the background in your pictures, me-thinks you were in the southwestern BC area.

    Glad you had such a good time rein, and must have been fabulous to meet up with another 'boarder'! I love seeing pics of family - your brother is looking great for 75!

    Chele - the oysters were wonderful! I won't buy them, or eat them at a restaurant, not after knowing just how good they are when they are REALLY fresh! Oh so good....
    Tahsis is on the north west side of Vancouver Island - about 25 miles away from the better known town of Gold River. God's country for certain!
    Thanks everyone for your comments. It had been 6 years since we were all together and my sister-in-law got it all organized when she knew when I was arriving and the kids all made sure to be there. :D

    Welcome back and I'm so glad your time was a happy. Those trips are so important, aren't they? I haven't been back to see my brother in Indiana for seven years. And there's nothing better than fresh seafood!
