Vancouver day 3

On Saturday we went on an adventure to Vancouver Island.  We took the ferry to Nanaimo and then the girls & Zach dropped Bri and I off at the golf course while they explored the island.

It was cold and windy out on the deck but we managed to take a family picture

The girls and Zach dropped us off at Pheasant Back Golf Course in Qualicum Beach.  Front nine was a links style course and the back nine was cut into the forest.  We didn't play great but had some fun.

An Eagle flew over and landed just off the driving range. Very cool!

Bri hitting into the 16th
This deer was on the 17th tee box.
I got within 10 yards of the deer. Obviously she is pretty used to humans being around.

While the boys were golfing the rest if the gang went to Cathedral Trail and checked out the huge trees, played some mini golf and went to the goats on the roof market for lunch and ice cream

Sometimes they love each other
The trees are just massive
The trees are "This Big"

I am not sure whether Zach had a head freeze from the ice cream or whether he is just being silly

We then headed back home on the ferry
