I am grateful as all heck for 2 nights alone with Julie at the Sooke Harbour House while my folks-in-law took care of the boys. It was sublime. The weather was great. We took in the sunset, at several of the most amazing meals I’ve had in my entire life, went for a walk by the Sooke Potholes and the river, and puttered around town for a bit. It’s been a long time since we’ve had so much time together without all of the constant distractions of our real lives.
