I am grateful for a fun day in Parksville. It happened to be the Parksville Kids Festival, almost like we planned it, but we didn’t. There were a half dozen or so big bouncy castles, and a train ride. There were mini donuts. It was fun.
I am grateful for the beach, which is where we went next. Tidal pools in the sand populated with fish, crabs (hermit and otherwise), sand dollars and snails.
I am grateful for lunch at Amrikko’s in Parksville, which is the best Indian restaurant I’ve been to on Vancouver Island so far.
I am grateful for a safe journey home.
