I am now back in Vancouver. Hanna and I took the Island Link Bus from Campbell River to Nanaimo together this morning as she was going down to visit her dad for a few days. It was nice traveling with her and getting a crash course on the iPod Touch. Looks like I may buy hers from her if she gets a new iPhone. So she was basically my personal DJ for the whole trip. She had one ear bud and I had the other and she’d surprise me with songs. When she was about 9, I used to drive her and Paige to school in the mornings. In the car, we’d listen to all sorts of things and sing along. She played a song we used to listen to off the album SO by Peter Gabriel and shot me a smile. I can’t believe that she remembered that!!
Paige was away at sleepovers for much of my visit so I didn’t get any pics of her. Yesterday, Hanna was off work so we spent the day together at the beach and at Willow Point Market. She is studying photography and has a really great eye. The photos that follow are taken by her.
Scary BIG barbie (that’s a full size dresser she’s all splayed out on) Hanna and I found at an antique shop. We left wondering who would buy such a thing. It reminded me of a horror movie my older cousins made me watch when I was in primary school (by sitting down on me so I couldn’t escape) called DOLLS. It was about dolls that came to life and killed people. I still have an fear of any ceramic dolls whose eyes move or are eerily frozen in a cheery expression. No thrillers or horror shows for this girl!
