After the festival we met up with my parents(who skipped the festival) at Coombs Country Market, or as most people know it "Goats on the Roof". Its a market with a sod roof and goats live up there. Everybody loves it. In fact I worked there one summer as a buser when I was 16 or 17, then later on my brother worked there for a full 2 years...I thought he was crazy.
After the market we chilled at my parents place before heading out to the Shady Rest for dinner with my parents and my step uncle and his wife. I used to go to the Shady almost every Friday with a group of friends for 0.10 cent wings and drinks before a night of dancing in Nanaimo. There are no dance clubs in Qualicum at all! Shady is right on the water and is a great place to get a bit to eat.
The only picture I took of my mom this weekend, she does not do the dishes all the time, I swear.
Sunday and my parents tried to get out on the ocean in my parents boat they just got but the tide was too low and then when we were driving home on of the axles broke. Luckily the boat was fine but we got stuck on the side of the road for a couple hours. We did however make it home in time to have my favorite meal, with my grandparents before heading back to Vancouver on the 9:00pm ferry. It was a great weekend and a long time overdue.
