Sunday Observations

I hope you've all had a nice and relaxing weekend! I've been in Victoria again, for the 3rd weekend in a row, for another shoot. This is what I noticed in Victoria today...


 A pretty little beach just down the road from our crack of dawn photo shoot. 

Red Fish Blue Fish is a tiny seafood pit stop housed in a converted shipping
container. Located on the pier right in the city centre. The "tacones" are fantastic!


Victoria is on Vancouver Island, about a 1 hour and 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver (Tsawwassen ferry terminal). If you find your self in Victoria, and need a hotel, I like to stay at the Magnolia Hotel. It's more of a "boutique" hotel. The staff is great. 

What did you get up to this weekend? Long weekend in the U.K. wasn't it? 

Back soon!

The timber photo is lovely. Have you ever decorated with old timber? It can be such a neat touch on coffee-tables, etc.

ooo! Victoria is on my must visit list... we went to Pender Island a while back and saw whales on the ferry ride over. So amazing.
