Don’t Worry, It Will Be All Right

We got up early in the morning to go to the Toyota car dealer (our appointment was at 8:00 am)ย to get it fully checked. When we arrived we heard a *kling* and when we looked under the car we saw this…

I have to say that we both slightly panicked but luckily we were at the right place to get it fixed. We asked for a full check-up and it seems that our car is a little sick and needing some maintenance ๐Ÿ˜ฆ The bottom is a little rusted and also the connections to the engine are a little old. The thing that fell off is not that important (thank goodness). It’s just the screws that were rusted. The engine and breaks all in all seem to be okay still. So we should be safe enough going forward but we might get more surprises in the next few months (let’s hope the dealer is mistaking about this)…

Once the check-up was completed we went to get our missing camping equipment in the ‘Mountain Equipment Co-op’. There we bought sleeping bags, chairs, a cooking gas fire and 2 soup bowls. Surprisingly and very unexpectedly Marijke is now an official member of the MEC community (apparently you have to be a member to be able to pay at the till…).

With all our gear we drove up to Kits Beach to see if it would all fit in the trunk of the car. After some puzzling … and some more puzzling and reorganising, we managed to get it all in! (makes you wonder though if you really need that many clothes or that much stuff)

As the weather was great and we were already at the beach side, we went for a little stroll along the coast line.

And found a wild rabbit … maybe a friend for Pina? … ๐Ÿ™‚

Tonight we are staying in Richmond in a new AirBnB. So far, no bags to be moved or rooms to be shared so that seems to be all good ๐Ÿ™‚
