The Arizona desert isn’t a bad place to spend your winters but when you have salt water in your veins, sooner or later you start to need an ocean. Just to get me thinking of home again, a friend recently sent me this video shot in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. You can call it that … I call it home.

It is a little arty, .... but then that’s the Cowichan Valley. :-)

Take a look and welcome to my part of the world for a few minutes.

I’ve travelled to and lived in many different parts of the world, and I wouldn’t trade our neck of the woods for anywhere else. I bet a lot of people feel the same way about where they live, which is what makes it “home”.

Wonderful Video Paul and it sure looks like a great place to live. I can think that you and your wife are very happy to be going home. Have a safe and enjoyable journey.

Looks like a beautiful place to live sir and I like how the video was made. Pretty cool.

How may bedrooms does your home have and what time does your wife serve breakfast? I’m just planning my summer.

Thanks for sharing Paul, have a good trip home. We have only visited once, but we enjoyed it a lot. Being a flat lander, here in eastern Montana, every time I am close to the ocean, it always makes me feel peaceful.

I agree with John, and home is here with the mountains, Great Harvest bakery, good music and good people.
The video has great musicians and choral people. Still remember some buddies? who offered to race me
to a log boom in Lake Washington and stood on the dock laughing as I came up from a racing dive trying to
catch my breath. I think Flathead Lake is warmer during the Polar Bear Plunge. Enjoy your home.

Hmm, that was nice. It reminded me of so many places from Cape Cod to the mountains of Pennsylvania with a little Hawaii thrown in. The music was lovely. Thanks for making my day…..........
