Pacific Rim National Park

The diesel heater install aboard Idyll Time is progressing smoothly, so we decide to head out in the RV to explore areas of Vancouver Island that we won’t be visiting by boat.

With the […]

New Cruising Plans

Where do we want to cruise next? This is always a topic of conversation as we plan our yearly travels. Having cruised up and down the east coast for the past ten years, we are ready for a new adventure. The Bahamas are nice but to go further south down into the Carribean would present […]
