Spellbound

When everybody seems to be enthusiastic about a place we both tend to be rather skeptical – at least it helps to avoid being disappointed in the end. What would Tofino actually be like? Would the famous seaside town on Vancouver Island be a good spot for our first and desperately needed holiday after 1,5…

Down By The Water

On an island the ocean of course is never far away. That’s even more true, if you are living near the coast – as we have been doing for a year now. Yes, this week we had our first „Sooke Anniversary“: one year ago we moved into our house on the West Coast. During the…

We Are Family

Not only do we have a little „Puss in Boots“ in our house – now we share it with a little whale rider as well: Paikea! She is a black and white tuxedo cat. That’s why she was originally named Orca. The very cute Pai is another rescue kitten. Someone found her in the woods…
