I am on route to Oregon but I wanted to post some random pictures of my last day with Magpie.
It was a beautiful day on Saturday and magpie said we should see some of the local tourist sites.
The stump at Parksville Beach, everyone takes a picture here.
Better picture of Luigi on the Stump
Luigi at French Creek Marina, hundreds of fish boats and a great seafood market.
Luigi at Qualicum Beach, with the snow on the mountains where magpie says snow should be.

Magpie says that on Valentine’s day she usually makes a nice dinner for the family because it is too busy to go out for dinner. So she asks me to help and we are going to make Cioppino and rice balls.
Magpie likes seafood that is fresh but I think the crab is dangerously fresh. We also have

A Celebrities Welcome
It’s a-me again.
I somehow have found myself clear across the country. In a land of snow.
I’ve arrived in Utah at Missy Anne’s comfy little home that apparently is run by little bambino’s; a girl and a boy.

Meeting Missy Anne's daughter. She's a huge fan.
