A little post on Victoria is what I will do
After the seaplane ride from Vancouver that
morning, I began to make my way towards the
Downtown area. A stop at a coffee shop for a
big cup of tea to warm up was much appreciated,
for the wind was more than subtle that early hour,
not to mention the temperature a little bit nippy.
Several minutes later found me browsing through a
bead store, then just outside its doorstep, a patio with
a bench. It was too cold to sit outside but definitely not
too frosty for a quick shot of the blooming camellias,
its petals appeared so soft and lovely the camera could
not resist. But the detail that caught my attention was the
droplets from the morning rain that adorned the leaves.
The afternoon caught me wandering towards the
Empress Hotel and the flowering branches nearby. It
was still chilly, a common remark from locals and
visitors alike, but the sight of the blooms was a
warm welcome that day. What a delightful discovery!
The rest of the day was spent at a yarn store, and
a good store it was with hours perusing through
the different materials that made up each ball of
yarn, fingers contentedly caressing, eyes devouring
multiple combination of colors, and books
prompting all kinds of ideas for future projects, a
feast for the mind and senses, I was in heaven!
One last shot of the Downtown buildings before
heading towards the hotel where David was
eagerly waiting. Another post on Victoria
is scheduled for Friday!
