About half an hour outside of Victoria can be found Victoria Butterfly Gardens and The Butchart Gardens. Both are incredible places.

First we went to see the butterflies in their indoor tropical playground. Then we were equally wowed by the beauty of Butchart Gardens.

We just returned from an amazing holiday in BC. It started with our first ever trip to Victoria. What took us so long? It’s a beautiful, friendly city.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Val has made good on his threat to cut his hair. Of course I documented the process.

Here he is looking longingly outside at the cottage. He knows how good he has it – he doesn’t really want to leave. Just look.

Belated Happy Canada Day

East York Canada Day parade took place on a very hot July 1.

Ward 29 Bikes had a small “float” of riders, with the star of the show being Felicity in her fabulously decorated balloon bike.

Yes, she is actually in there somewhere.

Captain Canada emerges!

A lot of people took pictures of Felicity!

The streets of East York (at least those on the parade route) were lined with red and white (mostly white, to be honest) viewers.

That was my first ride, albeit at a snail’s pace. I am now practicing for my August ride around Lake Simcoe with Val.


Come From Away

My mom treated a group of us to this fabulous musical on Saturday!

It is very emotional.  I was told I would cry but I wasn’t prepared for it JUST HAPPENING from very early on in the play.

Very Canadian. Lovely music, great story. Great band – one guy wore a Def Leppard shirt. Does he wear it to every performance, I wonder?
