My friend for the last 10 years, Alexander, works for BC Ferries. We were sitting in an Ethiopian restaurant in East Van (which I made him try for the first time) the other day for lunch when I asked him if he got to go on the ferries for free. He said yes. I said can I go too. He said yes. So we went! We barely made the 3:00 sailing, it was very dramatic. I haven’t been to Victoria in so long. It was very nostalgic for me, and we saw dolphins!! We also ate at Red Fish Blue Fish which I heard about a really long time ago and we both finally got to try. The line up can often be 45 minutes to an hour, but we only waited about 15 thankfully. We had seared tuna tacones, jerk fish tacones, and halibut fish and chips. It was all reaaally good. Then we came back! We both fell asleep in the car and didn’t even get out of the vehicle on the ferry crossing back we were so tired!
Some more of my favourite photos, taken on my DSLR. It’s my first time using my camera in a very long time! I didn’t bring it with me to Europe, but luckily got to use George’s for the last few weeks (except he “didn’t think it was necessary” for when we went to the Eiffel Tower - I don’t want to talk about it). These are all shots from the High Note Trail on Whistler, mostly in the area by Symphony bowl with a little stream and lake, and lots of wildflowers.
