Once in a very long while, you stumble into someone’s life and instantly become “old friends”.  You know, the type of friend that makes you feel that you can share just about anything.  There is an instant connection, and in minutes you know more about each other than most friends know over decades.  These moments, […]

It has been awhile since last we posted on our visit to  McLean Mill National Historic Site in Port Alberni, a wonderful heritage museum that is full of treasures and exhibits from a bygone era.  This museum is an important link to Vancouver Island’s past, paying homage to the logging industry, one of the key […]

Spring has finally sprung here on the west coast of Canada after a really long and cold winter.  I’ve lived here since 1980 and to be quite honest, this was one of the worst ones I can recall.  As with all things in life, once the snow finally disappeared and signs began to emerge that […]

Once again we explore the inherent beauty found in things full of rust, now forgotten and forlorn.  This is one of our loves here at Toad Hollow.  There is simply so much character and personality in these unused vehicles, and you truly have to wonder about the stories that the rusty metal holds secret within.
