Black Bear Pub, Nanaimo

Well, Nanaimo if you have never been here, you are in for a treat. The view/ambience is breathtaking and the food…. Well, yesterday we sat next to a table of 4 ladies. The food they had on their plates made me ask our server what it all was. The portions are more than generous and it looked delicious.

They had fish tacos (3) and huge, pulled pork sandwich would feed 2,, taco salad (huge) would feed 4 for sure, salmon burger.

We checked everything out and decided to order ‘sharable’ appetizers for both of us. Don order the Schnitzel (2 large pieces, fries and vegetables). I decided to take a chance and ordered the Mac and Cheese. I have ordered it from time to time anywhere we have been and always ended up with something you didn’t want to eat. This, on the other hand, has made converts of both of us. WOW! it is and was delicious. It was so large we boxed it up and shared it for supper and, guess what? we will be having the balance of it for lunch today as well as the remainder of the Schnitzel.

Give it a go….it really is a super place to dine…on the deck…in the sunshine….yup, we will be back.

Father’s Day 2024

I know I am not alone if I don’t have a father sitting at our dinner table, but it is still tough when Father’s Day comes around. Twenty-fours years have gone by since we even said “I love you” to each other and I am ever so thankful we have a special bank for memories.

In my family now, Don is a great Dad to his four children and an awesome ‘step’-Dad to my daughter.  They all get along so well and it is amazing to watch the pecking order when they all get together. If you are in a blended family, you will know and understand what I just said.

I am glad my parents raised me as they did (although not always when growing up, to be honest) and happier still that, due to my own circumstances, I was able to raise my daughter in the same manner.

To those still so fortunate to have your fathers with you, be thankful and give them a special hug and tell them you love them. These moments you will always remember. To those who are apart, take the honourable step and phone him this weekend and just say you were thinking of him and hope all is well.

You just never know when that is taken away from you as we are not given an advance announcement unless, of course, illness is a factor. If the latter is the case, make the effort to go and see him, if only to say goodbye. You won’t regret it.

Pop, we all miss you and remember with a smile, your laughter, singing and especially when the Irish in you showed up.

Love you . This is your special Father’s Day card just for you.
