One of the best things about stopping at the Point Robert's Sip and Ship is their ice cream. They always have kid friendly flavours like birthday cake.

And Moose Tracks and Rainbow Sherbet. Oh yum.

In fact, the ice cream options were so good, even mummy broke down and tried some!

Then, when we'd finished buying our crazy cheap gas, picking up our parcels and eating our ice cream, we headed to the beach. Because we finally figured out how to get there...

And it was sublime!

The kids were so excited to see all the drift wood. I knew Andrew would have liked it too. It's really too bad he has to work to support our extravagant life style!

There were oodles of little driftwood houses dotted along the beach too.

Of course the kids were in heaven! Little houses to play in!

We adults were quite happy with them too - it was windy there on the point!

Some of the houses were really basic, but a few, like this one, were really sophisticated.

This one even had a bed and pillow in it!

And skylights!

My handsome baby brother. In a few weeks he's getting married and likely our adventures will come to an end. The end of an era. It is sad making.

Thank goodness I have these two to continue my adventuring with.

And Lizzie in Uncle Dave's straw hat.

We came to the end of the public beach. Way off in the distance you can see Tsawassen's beach.

And the campground by the water. I would SO love camping here!

The kids found a little cafe house. Complete with crab's legs for sale.

We stopped at the Orca Learning Centre on the way out. Apparently this is a PRIME spot to watch the whale migration.

See how close to the beach those babies get? SO cool. For $75 a year, you can join a list and they will phone you every time there are whale pods in the area. Split that between a few interested families and I think it would be SO worth it!!

Love the wooden boardwalks!

And then we had a quick pitstop at Starbucks to freshen up. Lizzie bought this 'round.
