Tuesday In Victoria

This morning we woke up to another beautiful sunrise. It was a beautiful sunny day too! 

We went downstairs for breakfast. We had fruit and apple souffles. It was delicious! I actually got a picture of it because only Jeff and I attended breakfast this morning. 

We had a lovely conversation with one of the Inn Keepers, Dieter. Tomorrow he will be taking us out in his boat for whale watching!

We decided to take a mini day trip. Our first stop was the beach right across from the lagoon where we are staying. There was so much drift wood!  It was beautiful.

We stopped at Goldstream Provincial Park for a bit of trail walking. Unfortunately, the Salmon run had not started. That would have been neat to see but we had fun none the less.

I loved the huge Maple leaves. They were everywhere.

There were also beautiful trees covered in moss. I like moss :-)

Rocks by the water covered in moss too. I love this place.

After Goldstream we continued to drive up the Malahat. It was beautiful.  Then we stopped in Cowichan Bay. This was a quaint little port town.  There were float homes and boats everywhere.

We had lunch at The Rock Cod Cafe. It was fantastic! 

We shared clam chowder with a side of crab cakes and....

a lobster melt. The best. So good! 

We went to a few shops too. We got some cheese at Hilary's Cheese and then stopped at the Organic bakery next door. At the bakery we picked up foccacia to make sandwiches for dinner tonight and a few ginger cookies.

Then we decided to head back to the B&B for a bit of canoing. While driving back, we saw the coolest dog ever...just chilling out the side of his ride.

I had so much fun canoing! I have never done this before but I want to do this everyday we are here. It was so relaxing. We even saw an otter poke its head out of the water.

While canoing, I got a closer view of the sheep farm.  They are so cute!
