Last weekend when Emily and I went on our little Sister’s Safari to Sooke, we decided to also venture to Port Renfrew to visit Botanical Beach. I had never been to Port Renfrew or Botanical Beach so I was really looking forward to checking out another part of the Island. I won’t go into the […]
With exactly one month to go, Emily and I decided to take the opportunity to have a sister’s weekend… well a sister’s overnight :) We didn’t go far.. in fact we went to a B&B about 20 minutes from my house, but even getting away just a short distance felt like a world away. We […]
