Walk – Victoria, BC, Canada 8/18/2013

August 18, 2013 (Sunday)

 

It is a lazy day.  We just hung out until this afternoon.  We are packing and getting ready to leave in the morning for Tofino and the West Coast of this beautiful island.  Edie forced me to put some pants on and take the garbage out.  Since I was dressed, shoes and all, I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood.  There is a school down the way from where we are staying that I had been wanting to check out.  It looked special.  I walked past the neighbors places to the main cross street and then went down to the school.  The grounds are beautiful and meticulous.  There was a cricket match in progress.  It was a nice walk.

At the end of the walk, in our front yard, the colors grabbed me.

When I got back Edie had an excellent diner ready for me, fish, baked potato and steamed carrots.  We are ready for our date night, Masterpiece on PBS.  We really enjoy a good mystery!

This has been our day, hope yours was good.
