Every day is rife with possibility. What if we were to turn right instead of left at those lights? What if we miss one bus and catch another? This journey of mine is full of ever-greater growing awareness of such happenings. At times it can be a little daunting but as I go to sleep under my sleeping bag on a couch, floor, or bed, I look back upon my day with wonder, and close my eyes with anticipation for what I will discover the next day.
This day I woke up on a couch a number of kilometers out of Victoria after having attended an unexpected invitation to a friend’s house party at a lake. A good start followed by blueberry pancakes, cleaning up the house, and finding a way back to the city. Don’t worry, we’ll get to the adventures of Hula Dog soon enough. 😉
After finding my way into town I met up with Tyson Elder (a ponderer and wanderer of great skill as well as a musician/show photographer) (www.tysonelder.org) for some food and adventure!
I met Tyson through Flickr a few years ago when living in Victoria. We’d commented on each others photos for a few months when we randomly bumped into each other next to the gates of Chinatown.
Here is that very photo (as found through the magic of Flickr’s search function on my flickr account 😉 )
He is now older, wiser, and beardier. So we went for pizza in Cook St Village
He was house sitting for his parents so I was unprepared for, and blown away when, seeing this when I sat down in the van.
So not only are we going on an adventure… but we’re taking Hula Dog, and the gang, on an adventure out of Victoria to the Esquimalt Lagoon. Here we go.
What did we see there? Well…
