|Ginette and friends participated in a humongous dirt defying race, this past Saturday...|
|A family/friends ocean side picnic was shared this past Friday...|
|Another picnic in the park was lived late Saturday afternoon.....|

Jeanette's cousin's daughter, Darcie, who lives near Victoria, BC, Vancouver Island, spent the weekend with us and she joined in on our family activities. Several of her 'Dirty Dash' race photos are evident in this blog. She hustled along the course to capture photos while Jeanette and I looked after Easton and Brie near the Start/Finish line.

|Some mud wrestling before the race. OK to watch, I suppose, but certainly not an event I would enter at this stage in life.|
|Let the race begin|

We were back at our home by noon, Saturday. Ginette showered and later, when Trevor was freed from his firefighting duties, we headed to a local park for a nice afternoon picnic and barbecue. A fitting close to a fun day in the sun (and mud too, for some).

|Being in the trees did have a cooling down effect. The higher we climbed, the nicer it was.|
|We took a break at this southern end of the Ruskin Dam area.|
And that covers our activities from here, for now.
Thanks for dropping in.
