Following our trip to South America, I came home with a plan  up with to catch up on various crafts – sewing, scrap booking etc.  Consequently, on one hand I got a lot done;  on the other, I completely lost my writing mojo and this is my first blog for quite some time.

Now I have it back ….. because we are in Canada!

Nice to have a direct flight, from Brisbane to Vancouver.  Not so nice the 13-1/2 hour flight.  Good thing I can sleep pretty well so don’t have a problem with jet lag.

We are doing a Trafalgar tour with a group of 24, so together we made our way from the airport to the car ferry, heading for Victoria, Vancouver Island, where we spent 3 days in our Worldmark accommodation, very conveniently located, a short walk from Fisherman’s Wharf.


The locals were feeling the heat, with temperatures around 30 degrees, but we thought it was great.  Love Victoria, the beautiful buildings, friendly people and hanging baskets of flowers everywhere.


Also it doesn’t get dark until about 10.30pm which was absolutely amazing for us.  We can’t even get daylight saving in Queensland, so we thought it was wonderful to be able to walk around town in the evening and watch all the buildings light up.
