Can you feel it? The sun is starting to shine a little brighter, the cold doesn’t have quite as much bite as it did a few weeks ago and the odd green thing is starting to sprout. I know February is far too early to declare spring has sprung, but I feel like we’re rounding the last corner on winter and that is cause for celebration.

My lovely parents live on a little island off the coast of Vancouver Island. I don’t get over to visit as often as I’d like. The cost to ferry our car over is $200 round trip. Depending on how the 2 ferry schedules line up, the trip can take as long as 5 hours, even though the distance is very short. There’s a lot of waiting around.
Fortunately the cafe aboard the ferry makes excellent clam chowder. Dolphins can sometimes be seen swimming alongside the ship. I play a lot of Sporcle quizzes on my phone (even better on your computer, FYI). And when I finally get there? I get this:
Totally worth it.
