You can most certainly thank the lovely Mrs. Toad for the title on today’s post.  We have a 1 in 7 chance it’s accurate, too!  On that note, you should probably pop back around on Friday.  After a hectic work-week, a visit to the bright and happy town of Cowichan Bay may just be what […]

Our New Year has gently flown in on gossamer wings, and in the background I can now begin to hear the flight song of a flock as it signals the first heartbeat of what is about to be our most exciting year ever. As is usual this time of year, we found ourselves in a […]

Those who follow us regularly may recall a recent post I made, an ode dedicated to the love of my life, Mrs. Toad.  The post titled “Celebrating 12 Years” talks about our anniversary and what it means to me, and notes that at that time we had one flipper out the proverbial door as we […]

The throngs of tourists that crowded the roads and sidewalks just a few short weeks ago are starting to abate, and the Cowichan Valley once again settles into a peaceful time where it becomes a playground to the locals.  The days are getting shorter and the shadows longer, yet the pleasant temperatures of late summer […]

When we first started Toad Hollow, I often wondered if we would eventually shoot all the interesting subjects that exist here on Vancouver Island.  Years later I can honestly say that was short-sighted.  Take Genoa Bay for instance; a lovely little marina community that is home to full and part-time residents, character-filled float homes and […]

Time sure does fly when you’re having fun, and there certainly is no lack of that around these parts lately!  Today’s post finds us in our own backyard where we are continuing a photoblog series we started in 2011 called “The Hollow’s Backyard” where we feature the sights and experiences we had at our local […]

When you live on a fairly tiny island in the pacific ocean, everyday is a day at the beach.  It is, indeed, pretty difficult to go very far before you find yourself suddenly in paradise with an unrelenting desire to just sit down and relax!  Luckily for two tuckered toads who have literally been hopping […]

There’s just something entrancing about rusty things.  Just beneath the surface usually lies an interesting story, some are obvious to easy to discover, while others remain a mystery forever leaving the viewer to their own imagination.  In today’s post we’re heading up island to check out a new spot we haven’t featured here at The […]
