I caught the 6:20 am ferry and so my drive to Victoria, under bright sunny skies, was lovely in that there was no traffic, and it was a beautiful calm morning. We drove first to Beacon Hill Park for a long walk along the beach and through the off-leash area of the park. For a treat, I went to Tim Hortons for a donut and hot chocolate, and then we went back to the park for more exploring.
Then we went to Todd and Jessica’s place. It was wonderful to be with them. Todd and I then went in my car to a small local bay that’s hidden in a residential area of Oak Bay, and Jessica arrived twenty minutes later with Thai take-out for our lunch. We ate in camping chairs and spent a good 2.5 hours there, just chattin’ and chillin’.
The drive home was as lovely as the morning drive, but busier, and when we got to the Gabriola ferry terminal, the line of waiting cars was a mile long. Sigh. But we waited happily in the car—Sheba was exhausted from the day—and by taking walks. I got home just before 6:30 and went to bed early.
Today I have lots to do, but I’ll also take time to do some relaxing because tonight, Paula and I are going to the Firetruck for dinner in the park.
