Day Two in Victoria starts with tea with my Dad.
Then after lunch it was time to go for a walk up Cook Street past different apartments and houses to the workplace of an old classmate to head out of town to his house to watch a hockey playoff game with his family and pets.
One of the things I quickly noticed in Victoria is that the city is full of runners. Some solitary, some a type of pack animal. All on the move. My Dad says he likes to pretend they’re thieves on the run. I’m sure it adds to the amusements of the day. For me? I always get Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind” playing in my head when I see a runner. I heard it a lot during these days in Victoria.
Next post I head out to the real west coast where the open pacific crashes and washes the coastline. I’ll be exploring the rainforest around China Beach and Mystic Beach with my friend Nicole! Great goodness! 😀
