"In the Dark" Where the Smurfs live.

Cathedral Grove British Columbia Canada

My Uncle on my Mother’s side told me that’s where smurfs lived.  At 5 years old I stood inside the tree, searching for the tiny blue characters but only saw beetles and moss.

Later, I revisited this tree as a grown woman, with my husband.  This was before we had little H.  I still looked for smurfs even though I knew it was just a silly TV show from my childhood.  This photo was taken at Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.  That’s hubby standing inside it.  He’s 6 feet tall.

This post is part of my participation in MomDot’s PR Blackout week. I’ll be posting about all things “In The Dark.”  I hope you’ll also turn inward. To think about your voice. To think about your goals and to pull it all together for a week of unique content.  If you do, please share your posts in the linky widget located here.



  1. I lived in Victoria for a few years and drove up to Cathederal Grove a couple of times. What an amazing place. I didn’t think to look for smurfs but it certainly does seem like the kind of place where mythical creatures might live!
