On March 1, my mom, my brother, and myself did a road trip to the village of Tahsis, on the outer coast of Vancouver Island. I don't think the three of us have spent time together just the three of us since Bob and I were kids.
Tahsis is about five hours from where I live, which is on the inner coast of the island. We will have to cross the island over a mountain pass. We are a little worried about road conditions.
Mother is holding an Alder tree catkin we had stopped to get for her as she was wondering about the redish bloom seen on the trees.
