Today felt like the first real day of vacation. We simply had time...we got to wander...stress was no where in sight.
We went out to Butchart Gardens...where I took 100's of flowers of photos...otherwise known as enough computer desktop backgrounds to last me a lifetime. We had an amazing lunch there and then we drove back to downtown Victoria to walk around the streets. I found a new store to love and also discovered some chocolate and tea to take home with us.
Except I'll probably have all the chocolate eaten by tomorrow.
We had 5:15pm reservations for tea...something I have wanted to go to since a friend first told me about the hotel over a dozen years ago. The thought of having tea there helped me get on the darn ferry in the first place. I told Sean that I felt like I'd crossed something off my bucket list. He totally got into it too...he is now thinking about drinking some tea on the way to work in the mornings and was happy to help me brainstorm how to copy their egg salad.
Mac meanwhile worked the "my parents will go for just about anything on vacation" system and we ended up on a carriage ride before heading back to take the ferry.
Here are some photos from the day...
It's a late night here in Vancouver...see you tomorrow with Day 5.
