Still working away. We took Makena to Bowen Island for the weekend. A change of scenery and the perfect locale to celebrate our first anniversary. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner at Blue Eyed Mary's restaurant in Snug Cove. Candlelight, linen table cloths, flowing wine and our new boat, our someday world voyaging vessel waiting for us at the dock.
