Hello, and happy Saturday from Victoria, British Columbia. I’ve zipped over for a very quick visit with my parents.
I woke up to snow falling in Vancouver, but thankfully, it wasn’t sticking TOO much to the roads.
Before Dennis dropped me off at the bus depot (it’s less expensive if it’s just me travelling to take the bus/ferry route rather than drive myself) I had a bagel thin with 1 tbsp almond butter.
I know I’ve posted photos of the ferry crossing before, but here are a couple few from this morning. (not a very nice day weather wise)
Any guesses as to what the arrow is pointing to? It’s the head of a sea lion. My little point and shoot doesn’t have enough “umph” to zoom in as much as necessary, so you’ll have to take my word (and the sea lion’s thoughts) on it.
While I was on the ferry I had a banana and bought a coffee.
We had lunch when I got to my parent’s place, kale salad (thank you for buying kale mom!!) and a piece of my Mom’s famous “egg beater” quiche.
We had a few errands to run during the afternoon, but when we got back, we had some tea and a little piece of dark Lindor chocolate.
We went out for dinner, here are my parents making their dinner selection….
And here they are going in cognito….
And a “normal” shot…..
I had a glass of white wine. The gnome had water.
We also had hummus and pita to start…..
and I had a small mediterranean pizza (spinach, artichoke, sun-dried tomato, olive and feta.
I also had a bite of my Dad’s garlic bread.
Look what was in the little garden container by the restaurant! KALE!!!!!! OK, OK…it’s just ornamental I know….but I bet I could turn it into a mean massaged salad or dehydrated chips!
Now, I’m going to close this post off and, with respect, go and kick my parent’s asses at Scategories. I bet their afraid!!!! More from back home tomorrow. Hope everyone’s weekend is going well too!!!!!
