Granted, Cal wears shorts even in the snow, but it is gorgeous weather right now in Victoria! Clear and sunny, all I needed was a sweatshirt and my book as I enjoyed sitting out at the green and blooming Beacon Hill Park today. The Rhododendrums are out, the grass is lush, and I felt truly [...]
Book now for this very special discount rate in January at Fisher House B&B, and enjoy delectable breakfasts and warm accommodations. See you soon!
I think this will be fabulous tomorrow! I found this great recipe for a breakfast casserole, and as soon as I saw “Dijon mustard” as one of the ingredients, I knew I had to try it. I’ll let you know how it goes!
The drive out to Port Renfrew was gorgeous! It took about 3 hours, but the reward at the end (and on the way through the forest) was worth it. We stopped in Sooke at the grocery store, picked up some munchies and “drinks”, got a recommendation to see Botanical Beach (and mind the tide) and headed [...]
Heading out past Sooke tomorrow for a little picnic with the new B&B’s picnic basket. Of course we just have to try it out…make sure it holds enough cheese and wine.

The JazzFest program is available now, and what a line-up of great performers! This is definitely something we’ll be checking out. I love being downtown; everything is right here!
I just found out how easy it’ll be to get to the festival without my car. I can catch the bus up the street and not have to worry about parking. I am curious to find out what “haggis hurling” is…I imagine it’s not what I think it is. http://www.victoriahighlandgames.com/events/2010/highland-games/
This two day event May 22 and 23 promises to be lots of fun with so many Scots around Victoria. I’ll be getting a two-day pass, and maybe Cal will wear his kilt!
