Two Weeks in VI !!


One day, as we were walking around, my husband told me that he really likes the Island landscape. He sees it as a perfect mixture between African landscape and Europe one. That was a sweet melody to my ears. I still like our adventure life, but I will love to stay and enjoy Vancouver Island for more than one or two years. My husband favorite place to be is West Africa. So, if he sees a bit of that part of the world here, Alleluia!!

Since we got here, it’s very sunny, dry and warm. The average temperatures, if I’m not wrong, is between 26 and 33 degrees. The past five days, we felt like being back in Burkina Faso, in May-June,  even if we don’t reach 45-50°C  and that we have continuous power and a lake “next door” to dive in to cool down!

And today, the cool, wet and nice sound shows up: THE RAIN!!!   After days without rain, I hope someone agreed with me that it was about time for some green yards,

Anyways, I love the rain. When I heard it sound this morning around 7 am, I opened our garage door, took my quiet time books, to enjoy this delicious touch from God! The result: this “rain” inspired share !!

Our ePiC a D v E n T u R e !!


That’s it, we moved to British Columbia (Western Canada), more precisely to Vancouver Island and we now live in Shawnigan Lake! Since Sunday, July 27, we are settling in while enjoying the beautiful summer on the Island.

For the record, this is our 10th move and it was the most relaxed and easy we ever had! Because, we didn’t have to pack anything ourselves (no fatigue), so we decided to make the trip with our car from Edmonton to Shawnigan Lake through the mountains!

Here are some pictures of our beautiful, amazing, indescribable and unforgettable adventure, blessed by the Lord.

Thanks to all of you who have prayed for and thought of us!

 

In Edmonton, our stuff were packed by movers.20140724_020445772_iOS

We have seen strange things and we thought we were on the planet Mars…IMG_3034

It was a relief when we saw this sign “the best place on earth.” We were in the right direction!IMG_3042

After 1200 km, we arrived at the ferry going from Vancouver to Victoria20140727_212812557_iOSIMG_3132IMG_3163

We were so fascinated by the islands crossed that we dreamed of buying this one!20140727_225741612_iOS
