This morning we took a long walk into downtown Victoria to Merchies for tea and stop for some other items we forgot to pack. I’m partial to Merchies’ Paris Afternoon tea and we bought a few more to try. It is a beautiful walk along the shore with much wildlife and many flowers and trees.
We learned a valuable lesson: despite walking every day we can’t walk as far as we used to. Our return walk was a slog. After lunch we spent the afternoon resting. I did a little sketching and painting and Jean read.
Later in the afternoon Jean went out to the shore to take some photos.
After dinner we watched a little TV and I practiced bass ukulele.
Answer: To get to the other tide!
Now that I know about barberry (pretty and nasty)’ I am just wondering what is the purple tree in the other set of photos. Very beautiful indeed. I looked very hard at your apartment but could not see you Paul behind the window.
Do enjoy and keep sending us pixes.
The shrub is barberry – lovely color and nasty thorns. Cheers, ace
Thanks! That’s what I suspected, but wasn’t sure. It is beautiful this time of year.
