So we recently went out west (to what I often call the "wrong side"... being a east coast sort) for a summer school, a wedding, and a wee little vacation.
Some comments about Victoria BC:
- People drive 35km/hr. No joke. We were almost late for the wedding. 35 people!!! THIRTY-FIVE!
- The weather is adjusted for optimal comfort in the summer. Warm, but not too warm. Dry, not muggy, but not too dry either. Everyday as we exited the hotel and I wondered if I'd dressed appropriately for the weather, a giant smile just crept up onto my face as I realized that it didn't matter, because I was just going to be comfortable all day.
- Downtown gets pretty empty in the evening. Don't try to find something to eat after 9pm. It will be difficult.
- J.J. Wonton Noodle House is still amazing. And according to their fortune cookie I will have "good money-luck next month". Here's hoping for that.
We had fun just relaxing and wondering around for a few days in a place we both briefly called home.
Vacation is good.
Best of digital photos are up on Flickr now, and my film should be ready, I just have to pick it up and post those.
