Canada – Victoria, BC

Great first couple of days visiting my dear friends Daphne and Mark and their cute Havanese dog Monte in Victoria.

Coming in to land I knew it was going to be a special visit – the view from the plane was perfect.

Daphne and Mark have a boat called “Three’s Enough” (long story!) and they kindly took me out for a day and night (it has two bedrooms!) on it. Here is the boat and crew (excluded me as I’m not really crew material but I make a great passenger!) – including Monte of course.

First stop Salt Spring Island where my vision was boggled at the Farmers’ Market by rainbow stalk kale, red and orange carrots and garlic-scapes (plus cute guy with amusing t shirt).

And then to top it all we had a wonderful dinner at the Relaise and Chateau restaurant- Hastings House. Last time I visited was with Trudy and Alan back in the mid 90s. It is still as good as I remembered and idyllically situated on a hill by the waterfront.
