Posts Tagged ‘“hat dance”’

What with the weather and all, we continued to lie low on Sunday, Father’s Day, but it was a fine day. The girls surprised me with a Father’s Day Hat Dance. In fact, I didn’t know what the heck they were doing at first, but the point was to present me with Father’s Day gifts, which were hats. Cuppa took a video clip of the performance, which of course I just had to join in, and I may post that on YouTube later (now posted click here for YouTube or here for my blog, Raindrops). They presented me with not one but two hats, one of which I am wearing in these photos, but I have worn the other already as well.

Not only that, but they spoiled me even more by gifting me with a CD of First Nations music. I had been wanting to get an album of aboriginal music, and Althegal knows some about the style with her academic background. We don’t get to spend much time with these two, so it was very special to be with them on a special day like this, and with the rather stirring native music playing in the background, I lost it for a while and am barely managing to control my emotions in the first photo but am doing better in the second.

As it turned out, Cuppa was also presented with a hat. She has never felt that she looked good in hats, but she tried on this one of Bug’s and it suited her very well. Since it didn’t fit Bug all that well, it is now Cuppa’s to look cute in.

Day 12

After that the spoiling continued with a brunch in The Common Room, a pub with a fine view of English Bay.

Day 12

After brunch we headed to the campus of the University of British Coumbia where Althegal will be pursuing her Master’s degree in the fall. I have seen some very nice campuses and actually been to school on two of them, but UBC is something else entirely. What a magnificent environment Bug has chosen to further her studies. The first shows the girls in the rose garden with English Bay in the background (the south side of the bay, the opposite side from which all other picture, including the header, have been taken). The second shows some flowers in front of a different building near what will be Althegal’s faculty.

The Anthropological Museum is located on the campus, and we enjoyed our little tour. Outside, Cuppa took the following picture of the three of us.

Day 12

We were to head to Vancouver Island and Pacific Rim National Park today, but we simply weren’t ready, so we shall remain here for another day. One thing we have to keep an eye on is the front, right tire of our rental. It was almost completely flat when we left the museum yesterday, but we filled it and are trying to monitor whether it is still holding the air. If it’s leaking, it’s very slow.

We also went online to check motel rates in Tofino, and they’re high, so another rent-free day also holds some appeal. Besides, it’s cloudy and cool again today, and we’re happy to pack and blog and spend more time with Althegal while Puff is off to a work-related conference.

Once we do leave, I’m not sure if we’ll be able to post regularly or not. We have time and internet access here, but both of those commodities may be in short supply once we hit the road. Nevertheless, we’ll try to update you briefly if possible.
