The old saying "the third time's a charm" proves true. This summer, on my third attempt I FINALLY finished all 75 km of the West Coast Trail. Stubbornness and persistence pay off in the end.
I made my second attempt at hiking Vancouver Island's West Coast Trail this summer. This time, I had my daughter along for company. This trip was both the highlight and the lowlight of my summer. The rugged coast of Vancouver Island is an amazing place to be, and it was made even better by being there with my daughter. I just wish we hadn't been forced to come home early after I took one bad step and ended up with a broken ankle.
Oh well, the say the third time's the charm, so we'll be back next year.
I can't wait to sit in this chair, by this window, and just full on chill. I do have to make it through a pretty tough month and a half before that can happen, but I'll just consider it the dark, stress-filled tunnel, and this little cottage in the middle of nowhere the light at the end of it.
