Black Creek!

A couple of weeks ago, a few of us friends and family had the fantastic opportunity to sail across the Salish Sea with the promise of quality time with our great friends Cam and Tamara (plus Indy, (dog) and Whiskey (cat)) , who have forsaken the chaos of city life and settled in Black Creek - just east of Campbell River, on Vancouver Island. The property and its beautiful surroundings lend themselves to a peacefulness and an energy-inducing enjoyment that is only second to the fantastic hospitality of our hosts. It wasn't all R&R though - each time we visit, Cam has a project in store for us - whether that be splitting wood, moving wood, moving a hot tub around the property, or filling the back of his truck with wood. Yes, many wood-based projects we did undertake - all the while supervised by dogs Eli and Indy as they pranced around the property, intrigued with our odd behaviour. The labour is all well and good with us, though - there's nothing like an honest homesteading day of work to improve one's vigour, and we are always rewarded with incredible communally cooked meals throughout the day. And maybe beer. Always beer...
