It is my birthday today and I am reflecting on my life! In my lifetime I have seen a few changes. I have gone from my childhood days of living in a remote seaside village with no roads or stores to being a blogger!
Where I grew up the only access was by boat. We had a wood stove that heated the water and a wood heater in the basement. We had no television, only radio. We had an outhouse on a hill with an apple orchard around it. I grew up on the beaches surrounding our home and village. I grew up on Vancouver Island.
My pioneer father was a fisherman and he cleared the land to grow potatoes. My mother had eight children that survived, I was the last one. I went to a three room schoolhouse until I was around twelve and then I went alone to live in town to go to school. I never lived at home again. The little girl in the photos is me. I only have a few photos of my childhood.
Everything is so different now. I have gone from nature to blogging. It is all computers, cell phones and television shows. Everything is about shopping, traffic jams and the terrible news of the world. I think back to a simpler time and wish I could go back in time. To be a time traveler. Just to live with nature on the isolated beaches again.
Here are some scenic views of some of the areas on Vancouver Island where I grew up. I mostly have photos of our trip to Long Beach and some taken out in the boat in the area by my husband. These are all blasts from the past.
I put in my posts for a few days as I have very bad eyes and only
one eye works and sometimes it is not working if on the computer too much.
