This is a journal of our retirement move and life in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island's ruggedly beautiful west coast. The town's motto is "Enjoy life on the edge".

Until the Next Time...


This will be the last post of the Ucluelet Bound! blog, as tomorrow, we pack up the truck and head across the water to our next adventure in North Vancouver's Lower Lonsdale neighborhood. The past year in Ukee has been an adventure that we'll never forget, a year in a place that offers a spectacular palette of Nature's wonders, all served up in golds, greens and blues.


Today, we pretty much finished up the packing, made a run to the dump, had a final lunch at the TacoFino Cantina, and then did a beach walk from Incinerator Rock up to the fabulous area just before Schooner Cove, one of our favorite stretches along the coast.


The weather for today and the next couple of days is simply stellar, with deep blue skies, bright, warm sunshine, and no fog. After a trek to Port on Tuesday through a downpour, this break in the weather is most welcome... we've done too many moves over the years in pissing rain, and it dampens not just the person, but the spirit too.


Later tonight, we expect my daughter, Rachael, and my eldest son, Alexander, who have once again volunteered to help us with the move, and we are enormously grateful, as both Marcelle and I both have arthritis and simply trying to grip things these days can be a punishing experience. My back also gives me much grief if I even attempt to overdo things, so having the kids' help is marvelous! It's also just plain fun to do this as a family, and the main reason for our moving back to the mainland is to be closer to the kids.


Tomorrow morning, we're off to Port to pick up a 17-foot U-Haul truck into which we will then shoehorn the household. Then Sunday morning, we head for the 10:40 AM ferry and on to the new digs.


If you, Dear Reader, enjoyed this blog, I hope that you'll follow us along on our next adventure in my Eyes On Vancouver blog. Hope to see you there, and thanks for the memories!
