More Fun in Victoria, BC

Bookmark and Share

Just got back from an exhilarating week on Vancouver Island. Many thanks to my sister and her husband. There’s nothing finer than being a pampered guest in a fine place!

We had fun visiting Fisherman’s Wharf where locals settle in to eat fish and chips, and tourists feed fish to the seals, who swim in daily around lunch time, expecting treats. Check out this cute, little seal who had no inhibitions at all!

Being in Victoria also allowed me to visit Mike Peters, of Pacific Music, our distributor out on the west coast. Mike and his efficient staff make the most of their workspace and are always busy, as business is booming at Pacific Music.

Tooling Around Victoria, BC

What a fabulous Easter weekend. My sister invited me to be her house guest on Vancouver Island.

On our way from the airport, we stopped in at School House Teaching Supplies on Douglas Street in Victoria. Susan Marcotte showed us around the fabulous store which was still a hub of traffic even as most people started to wind down for the weekend.

Other weekend excitement included a tree falling within feet of where I was sitting (winds were up to 80 miles per hour here), a local deer visiting on the front lawn, and a drive out to the point.
