it was a beautiful weekend here in victoria, bc
the sun came out and warmed everyone up
and the beaches called us down to explore.
ian's mom is still in town,
so we let her lead the way.
this is a stretch of beach off of dallas road,
facing washington's olympic mountains.
it is wonderful having visitors from out of town
because with them, we get to see our little corner of the world with fresh eyes.
there is so much natural beauty here...(and admission is free)
so we don't mind playing tour guides over and over again.
since our guest likes to sleep in,
i was able to attend my early step aerobic classes
while ian went running with his buddies.
after a good morning cardio workout - we can meander as slow as we like
to take in the beach, the ocean and the views.
it is so lovely to get to the beach...
the blues, the grays, the muted colours of the rocks and the ocean
are so soothing and such a contrast from all the spring colours of the garden.
with the fine weather,
we have been working hard in our backyard.
it is delightful to get a break from all the pruning and mowing and weeding...
but all the work was worth it because we returned there to bbq our evenings away.
the victoria school board has a professional development day today,
our kiddies are home and
so our weekend continues...
for one more day !!!
