Days out with Sue & Mal

At the end of Sue and Mals first full day with us we surprised them with tickets to a KD Lang concert.  A great Canadian performer, we knew Sue liked the artist but had no idea she was one of Mals favourites so it was a success all round !

KD Lang was performing at the Commodore Ballroom, Downtown which was a perfect venue as we were able to reserve a table and seating.  We were joined by our friends Sig & Helen and some friends of theirs so it was a pretty social evening.

KD Lang was excellent, and clearly loves performing.

On another day we went for a walk around Lighthouse Park. 

Mal loved Lighthouse Park, she is here on the steps of a cabin she decided she wanted to live in so she could be in the park everyday !

On another day I took Mal on the Quarry Rock walk, which originates in Deep Cove and ends in a viewpoint overlooking Indian Arm.  Mojo and I at Quarry Rock.


We have also been to Pitt Lake and the wildlife reserve, where we saw osprey nesting.


Although Mal didn’t need to leave home for her wildlife fix….. here she performs as a bird whisperer helping a small chickadee recover after flying into the glass of our front doors.  After some water, a rest under a bush and Mals magic touch it soon headed off into the forest.


We have more updates to follow soon now that Davids sister, brother-in-law and niece have also flown out here.

I guess Mojo had to skip the concert, huh? Ah, well; it's a rough life being doted on by two humans in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.
