Wow, today was a nice sunny day – a complete but welcome surprise. Today is John’s sister Barb’s birthday – Happy Birthday Barb and we hope it was a nice one.

We were going to go to the museum today and wander around downtown but when we got there it was a zoo with all the people who had attended the Remembrance Day service so we decided to leave that for another day. Instead we took the scenic route out along the bay – what a pretty drive.

The houses here are fantastic, we have seldom seen so many huge, beautiful homes in one area – it even smelled of money – LOL!! There are a lot of beach front parks and walks, which are really nice, so we stopped at a few and walked a bit and just enjoyed the day. The roads here are very narrow and there is lots of traffic including, vehicles, walkers and bicyclists so it is a bit of a challenge to drive through all that!

These are for Alison, Bob & Brea!

We drove out to Butchart Gardens but when we got there it was all overcast and looked like it could rain, and at $18/person we decided to pass as we have been there before.

On the way back we drove around the University of Victoria where Janet J. works, a very pretty campus and we couldn’t believe all the rabbits running around. Janet had said they were having a real problem with rabbits and it seems she wasn’t exaggerating.

We came back along the waterfront and checked out the ferry terminal we have to go to on Monday morning. We have to be there for 9 a.m. so that should be a fun morning as we have to hook up in the morning as there isn’t room to hook up over night. Sure hope the traffic isn’t too bad at that time of day!. The only good thing is that it is only about 5 km from the park.

We came back and walked around the park a bit and then came in and just did a bit of this and a bit of that. Dinner is over and John is watching his favourite program – The Tudors.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
