  • Hello!!

    I’ve found paradise. It’s called Ocean Resort, it’s an ocean front resort (hence the name- Ocean Resort) by Campbell River on Vancouver Island. Just hop on the Horsehoe bay Ferry to Nanaimo and you are just about in paradiseJ

    Here is a picture I just took this evening as Mike, myself and our devil, darling puppy made our way back to our hotel room.

    We are tired after a long day which started out like this:

    Up at 5am, at the Ferry Terminal by 8am, on the Ferry!

    Except when you have a 12 week old puppy….. you don’t go up to the passenger areas and sit in the nice lounge…..

    Instead- You sit in the dingy car filled lanes underneath the boat…

    Weeee…Oh well.. he is worth it.

    We made it to Nanaimo and I saw a dear friend that I haven’t seen in YEARS. No picture of her though, not everyone wants to be on a blog that is read by thousands;) Let’s just say though, she is like Canada’s version of Victoria Beckham… So, instead of a picture of my beautiful friend, here is a picture of a bee.

    Love ya girl!

    OK- So once we pulled up to Ocean Resort, the heaven’s opened up. We checked in, walk into our room.

    They have pet friendly rooms and we are looking out into the ocean and walking meditation.

    Our first Raw Food dinner was being served shortly, so we made our way over to the dinner hall.

    A yummy green drink awaited us.

    Followed by the appy which was a half an avocado with a raw cracker and salsa (I will get these recipes and try them, trust me, they were amazing)

    This is Raw food people! Chef Carol is AMESOME!! or shall I say RAWSOME! The main course was a stuffed pepper, flax and sprouts, the sour cream looking topping is whipped nuts, (either cashew or macadamia) These are the things I will find out! What are the recipes for these delicious, yet raw, wholesome meals.

    This place is what zen, health, wellness and relaxation dreams are made of!

    OOPS, but oh ya…. I still gotta deal with HIM….

    He was trying to eat acorns off the ground all night. I said, “did I buy a dog or a squirrel?”  He’s a bugger.

    K, bed… NOW. Love you! Night Night!
