Where we had fish and chips....

Towel Animal Sculpture by our Chamber Maid

Here are some of my favourite shots from our recent holiday. We visited the famous Harris Sitka Spruce on our circle marine tour, it must be getting on for a thousand years old it is so huge. Something like the photo of the girl trying to hug it. On the East coast we had excellent fresh cod and tasty chips at the Rock Cod Cafe in Cowichan Bay, before returning to our fancy hotel for the last time. The chamber maid always spoiled us by leaving a little animal made from towels, each day a different one!

I thoroughly enjoyed the link to the Harris Sitka spruce. The majesty of such gigantic trees leaves me in awe. I love the old water pump Hanne is demonstrating! Did you learn to fold those cute towel shapes? I certainly would have spent time carefully unravelling them to find out how to do so. The harbour picture is stunning!
