Had a small moment of panic after returning from lunch at the Vancouver Public Library: my books gone.. But they have the most friendly staff there in the world, be it a little too overanxious in cleaning out working booths. Even one of my own books was gone. But a very friendly man ran downstairs, came up with my book while another searched the whole library for two others and found them, packed already in a box destined to be FedEx'd to the library branch they came from when I ordered them.. MY, they are efficient! Cleaning the booth out, checking the books out and packing them into boxes within an hour!
And then going through all the trouble getting them back for me. Love the people at the VPL!
Marcel and I booked a hotel on the Gulf Islands. Check it out; we love the view. And hey, it was open in April. Don't know if Marcel will love the atmosphere, being more level headed than me. Perhaps we'll start the day greeting the sun and doing some yoga, before doing a healing session? We'll see. Go see for youself: www.serenitybythesea.com/accomm.html. So we'll be on the Galiano island a few days before hitting Victoria to celebrate Marcel's birthday.
If we get to the ferry in time, that is. Seems to be leaving only once a day, at 10.00 AM.
Staying for a week. My last holiday. After that it's work work work.
