Today, June 16, is my Victoria versary . One year ago I left our home in Edmonton to start a new job and begin our new lives in Victoria. I moved a few weeks ahead of Evan so today is my official landing day (we’ll celebrate Evan’s next month!). I decided I wanted to celebrate by doing something ‘Very Victoria’. And what do people do when they come to Victoria? Well first and foremost, anything water. So I chose something I’ve always wanted to do, whale watching. We were lucky on what a perfectly beautiful Vancouver Island day we got.
It was a bit of a strange outing. We all got to wear these super sexy jumpsuits but once that boat gets moving you understand why. You’re basically moving 50 km/hr in a convertible with no windshield. It got damn chilly. And 75% of the trip is moving fast to the next sighting. We saw 2 humpbacks, 1 orca, a pod of porpoises, bald eagles, and the beauty of the Salish Sea. Glad we went. Would we do it aging? Probably not.
Next up, dinner @surlymermaidrestaurant Because how do you not with that name? They were extremely accommodating for my dietary requests. Thank you. And hubby luved his meal. I started with the asparagus soup while Evan had the calamari. Then I had vegan grilled (instead of fried) yam tacos and Evan had the dark matter fish n chips. I really wanted to try the chocolate truffles but we were stuffed... next time.
This has been an absolutely fantastic year. It has flown by. So very excited for this next year where we hopefully get to move into our new home. And of course continue on with our Vancouver Island adventures.
To my love @evan.kirkwood Thank you for your support. Because of it we have been able to get to this point in our lives. I wouldn’t change a thing in our past as it has lead us to here and now. We have been where we needed to be and going where we need to go. Love you.
