A Port Alberni Visit.

A lot has changed at the old homestead...

...especially the view from the back yard.

Mind you, the view behind the garage is different, too!

Lots of plants have been trimmed (see the first picture!), especially the grapes!

Now, since I was here to help with mom, naturally, I went to Long Beach! ...such lovely weather...

The old Wickininnish building. It's still the building that I most identify with this beach.

Of course, no trip to this location would be complete without a visit to Pebble Beach (ok, South Beach, for you purists!).

The tide was out, but the waves were strong. Looking north, the crowds were... ...absent.

The recent stormy weather had left its mark.

And the rain made for slippery boardwalks in places!

Oh. Did I mention it was raining? Isn't that odd, since it is such rare an event on this coast.

Pebble Beach! Ok, I can go back home now.
