My Vickie goes to Vancouver and Back
Boy the minute my Vickie got home, we were off again. The hospital on Tuesday and the VA home Wednesday. I love the visits but I hate to have a bath once a week. We use an oatmeal shampoo and conditioner to keep my coat nice but not to harsh for my skin. However, My Vickie worries about my getting so many baths and wants to know if anyone knows of some real gentle shampoos that we could use that are better than the Oatmeal.
It is true that this is My Personal Blog but My Vickie got to see so much really cool stuff that I asked her to put in a few pictures for you.
Like these mushrooms. My Vickie loves mushrooms (not to eat though) she thinks they look like homes for little fairies.
They are kinda cool lookin.
The Buchardt Gardens on Vancouver Island were very pretty too. My Vickie was surprised that they had so many flowers still in bloom for this time of year.
Then she and her mom, aunt and sister went to the butterfly gardens. It was like going to a tropical jungle. The butterflies would land right on you and they were flittering all around you. There were many many different colors and species. VEry amazing
There was even a waterfall there. Boy would I have liked that
There were turtles, cool fish and these two flamingos. Certainly a must see if you ever go there.
The ocean was beautiful even though they couldn't see it for most of the trip. She had a wonderful time but she is (I am sure) very very happy to be home.
Now we are getting ready for the big "Halloween" day. We are going to be guests at a school for the day talking about Safety. So I better go help My Vickie get ready.
So glad to be back.
PS My Vickie did a video of her trip if you wanna see some beautiful scenery. The camera that took the swim still has a hard time giving us sharp focus especially on people, so try to overlook that.
