All That Anticipation

Vacation recap:

Mornings were spent sitting out
on our hotel room deck drinking tea.

Even if it rained, due to a glass overhang
we were able to still sit outside.

If you got a little chilled while eating or drinking outside?
There were always complementary blankets and
heaters at most restaurants.

Catherine Street  :)

Sunday was my most favorite day.
I hope to never take for granted the fact that I
have a husband who humours me.

First stop was Bulk Barn to buy organic oat flakes
(yes, the more expensive 'organic') and seeds
and then we spent over an hour and a half at
Beacon Hill as I wanted to feed the ducks.

And what happens when you run out of food?
Those ducks follow you.
Right past Stanley.
 They knew who the supplier was....
I didn't want to leave the squirrels out.
But they were not as agreeable to
eat out of my hand like the ducks.
Maybe they wanted nuts rather than seeds.

Then another hour and a half sitting on a beach
searching for pretty rocks and sea glass
of which both were plentiful.

There were a few refreshing beverages consumed.

So many wonderful restaurants to try
and excellent food to eat!

Luckily, we walked lots too!

We lucked out with the weather and had
3 very hot days
1 cool but nice day
1 windy day - spent in a rental car touring outer Victoria
1 rainy day - spent at the imax and shopping

And as much as we love Victoria,
we are always very happy to go home.

And home we came.

All that anticipation over holidays
and they go by in a blink.
It's hard to hang on to that feeling
of relaxation and contentment.

But I shall try.
