This weekend I had the good fortune to be visited by Gayla and Becca from Seattle and Dan from Albuquerque. I picked them up from the Clipper terminal in Victoria on Saturday morning and the tour began! A walk around Victoria (the Busker Festival was on), a meander through the Empress, a drive along the waterfront, and a wonderful walk and cream tea in the Abkhazi Gardens. Most of the photos in the slide show are of the wonderful flowers and plants that are surviving despite the current prolonged dry spell. We drove the slow scenic route back to Ladysmith and had a quiet supper chez moi.
Sunday we hiked the Holland Creek Trail down to the Ladysmith waterfront and marina. Lunch was at the Beantime and then time to drive them back to Victoria to catch the 5.30 ferry back to Seattle. The traffic – it has increased….
A lovely but far too short a weekend – click on an image to start the slide show.
