I'm Back!

Yes, I am back, I had an opportunity to visit my dear daughters and I jumped at it.

  

 I flew away to BC.

We had a busy and fun time.
What did we do?  Well, lets see...we went hiking...no photos of that today, I will do a post on it another day.

We went to the beach in White Rock...

Grandson enjoyed climbing on the rocks.


we picked blackberries...


Granddaughter enjoyed picking.


We visited my aunt Ruby and uncle Egon.  Aunt Ruby is my mother's older sister.
We went shopping at IKEA!
My daughter enjoys IKEA as much as I do, not so sure about her husband and son.
So many wonderful things to see.



 We visited a historical home built on the edge of the water in the state of Washington.  The view above is what they saw from the windows of this house.  I could live with that, how about you?






Even the outbuildings were attractive.





I love these windows and the window box.  No one lives there anymore, it is owned by the city or state, not sure which.
Thank you to all of those who came over from Ann's blog "On Sutton Place", you, along with my friends, made the post before this one my most popular one yet.  A special thanks to Ann for featuring my little cottage, you are so sweet dear Ann.

I missed all of you, (thank you to those who checked up on me) and I'm so glad to be able to blog again.  I have more photos to show you, some gorgeous beach cottages from White Rock and a trip to an antique store, just to mention a few.

See you soon!

This is a shot of the Rocky Mountains, we flew over these mountains for about an hour.  The range is SO vast!

Hi Cindy,
Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. I have a son who lives in BC and he took us to White Rock when we were out there last. It's a lovely place! My hubby loves flying over the rockies and seeing the different landscapes across the nation as we fly from sea to sea. We have a new granddaughter that we have to go out and see. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Welcome back Cindy! I've missed you. Your photos from the plane are beautiful. Isn't Ikea wonderful?? One can spend hours there just looking and sadly when flying we can't bring much home with us. I hope that house you saw is being looked after. It looks kind of forlorn. Have a great day! Blessings, Pamela

Lovely holiday, Cindy! It's so restorative to spend time with children and grandchildren.

Rhonda said...

Hello Cindy, I thought there must be a good reason for you to be absent from your blog. This trip looks like the best reason.
Your pictures are beautiful and I kind of feel like I got see it too.

Yes, I got your sweet email. So glad the little tags arrived and I can just imagine you adding them to you sewing projects.

Jimmy was looking on my sewing table and said, "Mom, why ever do you have 'Made by Cindy' labels" I told him they were for you and he offered to have their law clerk mail them since I don't seem to have much time for errands.
Wasn't that sweet?
And wouldn't it be wonderful if we all had a clerk to do our errands?

Sounds like a fun fun vacation.

When I was in BC in the spring, I had a window seat and had an awesome view of the Rockies there and back. They were covered in snow and so pretty.
