smell the sea and feel the sky
let your soul and spirit fly

                                                                   - van morrison
our west coast weekend was dark, cloudy, and very, very wet but remarkably mild.
perrrrrrfect for a soccer match !!!

my daughter's soccer team won their game on saturday.
in two weeks they play to win the island title and the chance to qualify for the provincials.

of course...she was soaked through and through.
and yes... she was chilled to the bone (especially after the celebratory milkshake after the game)
our hot water tank emptied into that bathtub so many times (we really should invest in a hot tub!!!)

the rest of the weekend was spent:
eating valentines chocolate
making valentines cupcakes
browsing through used bookstores
visiting with grandma
coffee-ing with timbits (it's roll-up the rim time...did you know?)

and taking photos of the seagulls coasting by the shore.

happy monday every one !!!
