“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”  Audrey Hepburn

We hiked a few more beaches today finding a few more spots that we’d never been to before.  Some of the trails are quite steep and slippery as we’ve had more rain the last few days.  We did a little  geo-caching along the way, dropping a couple of trackables that my son sent over with me.  Geo-caching is how we’ve discovered quite a few out-of the way places on the Island that are not traveled by the average tourist.  

It’s a fun activity that can be done all over the world.  I highly recommend it.  It’s a wonderful activity for kids as well.  They love the excitement of “the hunt” and it gets them outside in the fresh air, getting exercise and quality time with Mom and Dad.  It’s a GREAT family activity any time of the year.  

These days all you really need is a cel phone with GPS tracking on it – or for the more serious Geo-Cache’r purchase an actual GPS unit.  We haven’t done that yet – but after this trip when we’ve had a few times without 3G access . . . I’m seriously considering purchasing one.  

Check out for information on cache’s all over the world.  You’ll find many in your area!



“It’s when ordinary people rise above the expectations and seize the opportunity that milestones truly are reached.”  Mike Huckabee 

Shortly after I started this Blog and my 365 Project back in January . . . my MIL fell and broke her hip.  She is 92 years old, so we were quite worried and concerned about her future.  Luckily, it was a fracture, not a break  . . . and she healed so well, beyond the expectations of Doctors and Physiotherapists.  After months of Physio, we were able to get her up to the summer home in the Interior of BC where she has spent her summers for many, many years.  Fear of falling has been her biggest hurdle since the accident, so there were many challenges to be faced in the more rugged surroundings.  

Kudo’s to her!  With determination and help from a neighbor who is a retired Physiotherapist . . . she is now walking, with the aide of hiking poles, from the cabin and up the steep driveway to the main road.  This is a major accomplishment for her, as she would do nothing without her walker when we left her at the beginning of the summer.  She is still fearful of falling, but is not allowing the fear to stop her in her tracks.  I’m so proud of her!  She is such an inspiration . . . and she turns 93 in just a few days!  

Talk about Milestones eh??
