On the Road with MommyKnows Day 5

Published by on

**Winner is: Cindi – hey, Cindi please email me @ kim (@) mommyknows (dot) com and I’ll send you out a prize.**

We’ve had a great couple of days.

Hiking, beach combing, ferry riding and even a bit of shopping.

We’ve just had the MOST delicious home-made soup and bread lunch @ the Haida Rose Cafe in Old Masset, Queen Charlotte Islands.

Don't Let the Exterior Fool You ...
Don’t let the exterior fool you. The cinnamon buns alone are worth the 2000 km journey.

The whole family is waiting for me … we’re going crabbing! Hopefully, we catch our supper.

Will check in again soon.

Mmmmm..homemade soup and bread. My favourite lunch! Sounds like you’re having such a great time. Enjoy the beach…

I agree…don’t judge a restaurant by its exterior. The best food is often served at the not-so-updated places!! yum!

In my experience little family own cafes/restaurants or even donut shops have the best tasting food, and usually much healthier than others. There use to be this Korean Donut shop not too far away that had the most delicious jelly donuts. Mm…

Oh, woe is me……….I wish I was there.I love the kind of vacation you’re having. Glad to here you’re having fun and getting well fed at the same time. I’m sure the kids are loving it too, if there’s a beach nearby.

Wow the Cafe looks fabulous indeed in the picture above! Vacations like this one can really be fantastic for sure. Crabbing is also a fun provided you can catch your supper. I am diggin this lovely post: http://del.icio.us/britneyvaughan

Congrats on the trip. Do you feel healthier up North? I know its a strange question but I always find that my body is decluttered from city life by the time I get up North. I love it up North. Stresses and everything else just seem to melt away. Enjoy the rest of your trip and hope you caught lots of crab for supper!

MMMM fresh crabs. We keep missing out on the crabbing when we go visit my sister in Victoria, we are always too busy to get out! Looks like you are having a wonderful time. I really want to go someday!
