Our Trip North, Vol. 1, The Magic Cottage

On Thursday, September 7, we left D/FW International Airport and landed at Vancouver International Airport. We rented a car and headed south to White Rock BC. The drive was beautiful, much agriculture and very green.

We arrived at Violette's Magic Cottage about 4:30 pm, and we visited with Violette and looked around the Magic Cottage until the others arrived.

What yummy food...Nicci and Marco made chocolate/peanut butter cupcakes for desert. We had salads and hamburgers, too! It was all delicious!!! Hey, I want all the recipes, Girls!
Violette listens as Raf plays Brian's guitar and sings. WE MISSED BRIAN SO MUCH!!

Ending at the Casbah!

This was truly a huge highlight of our trip. We love these people. They are so loving and giving and wonderful. I met the ladies on the internet, and it is tremendous to get to know them and their families.

Thanks, my Sisters, for a wonderful visit!!

Omigosh, the Magic Cottage is just FABULOUS! How I wish I could have been there with all of you...I just love, love, love all the bright colours and decor. How wonderful that you were able to meet in person with some blogging buddies:-)

I couldn't believe it when I read that you were in White Rock...that's where my brother Claude lives!!!! I was there a couple of times and loved walking down to the ocean when the tide was out:-) xoxo

Hi Sue, this is a wonderful picture tale of your visit at BC.
Until the end, I was wondering if you five were sisters with your maiden being Glitter. :-)
..
Did it take a long time to put all those pictures on? Your time was worth it for me.
