That is my time off for good behaviour.
Don't tell them I am wishing for this.
They think I am a fun mom.
Up and angry.
The plan was Tofino and kayaking and surfing.
Unfortunately there is tsunami debris washed in with the tide from Japans disaster last year - big and little debris.
Shipping containers, large fishing vessels, docks and plastics and other floaty things.
Sad really - bits and chunks of peoples lives.
This year as well there will be No Lifeguards!!! on Tofino's Long Beach to save us when we decide to do something we are not capable of. Like surfing.
"Discontinuing the Surf Guard program at Long Beach puts surfers in danger and will discourage visits to the park," says Bob Jackson, PSAC Regional Executive Vice-President, "The four Surf Guards employed by Parks Canada perform an indispensable service: on average they perform 8 water rescues and make 800 contacts with people on the beach per season. What will happen when they're not there and a surfer gets into trouble?"
I know we will be one of the eight.
Have I mentioned I am a worrier?
So with Tofino off the agenda we are now trying to find another fun relaxing place.
Whistler? mountain biking, zip lining, hiking?
Salt Spring Island ? kayaking, eating, biking?
Canmore? caving, hiking, biking?
The boys choice?
West Edmonton Mall.
Good Lord. What are they thinking?
Drive 8 hours to spend a week inside a mall?
I don't think so.
See that? on the edge of the pool? I'm sure that's the Plantars wart virus.
Have I mentioned that I am a neurotic worrier?
Anyway I will be gone for two weeks.
Don't do anything fun without me!
