My mom's visit of 2 months was concluded with a weekend away in Victoria, on Vancouver Island. Although short, this little trip was for me a pleasure bomb.

Beautiful and dramatic scenery from the Ferry

The Undersea Gardens. A bit creepy for my taste but very exciting for the kids. Specially the octopus and Wolf eel. Theo drew all the sea creatures on his little notebook after the visit.

Driving through rural Victoria in October

You can tell it's Halloween time

Give me all of them please.

Wherever we go we always hit bookstores (we even do that on evening dates with Pablo!)

A wonderful patio with the most amazing food. Everything you try there is highly delicious. No exceptions.

And little birds must know this well!

Window shot.

Breakfast at the Hotel with a great view of the marina

And later, much enjoyment of this sunny Sunday with a stroll along the seaside.

Isn't it amazing how much pleasure and enjoyment you can find when you don't take things for granted? And how time can stretch so much?

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy week. Enjoy all that life gives you for free!
