LOOK!! NO KIDS!

This was the best get away of all...Tony and I went on our first "get away" with NO KIDS! Woohoo! And we got to go with our good friends, Joe and Hallie. We had so much fun. We went to Sechelt, along the "Sunshine Coast", here in BC. We took the ferry out of HorseShoe Bay, and it was a quick little ride, but nice.
We found our hotel right across the street from the ocean. I was a little worried at first, as we had some pretty hot days prior to our leaving, and when we went into the room there was no air conditioning...YIKES! But, it worked out, and ended up being the perfect weather.
We took a little walk along the water, looking for sea creatures...the only creature we found was this TOTALLY CRAZY ATTACK DOG! We are very fortunate that I still have my leg attached as he came right out of no where and tried to bite the heck out of me!
...(Right, Joe and Hallie??)...
That dog will never be the same again...
Anyways, a friend of Hallies told her about this neat pub at the float plane dock, so we went there and had a really yummy dinner.

After dinner we went along the seawall, and saw a seal...it was a little far away and my picture turned out blurry, but we did see it and it was neat to watch.

We left pretty early the next morning, and we probably should have stayed another night...but it was a GREAT time. We have not laughed that much in such a long time.
It was nice having no kids to control the conversation, well, Tony was there, but we couldn't help that! :)
About 5 minutes after coming home, we were ready to go again...
Thanks Joe and Hallie for a GREAT time! Can't wait for next year...
