Riddle: Why did the Orca cross the road?

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!

Nighty night!


About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    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.
    With love.

    The shrub is barberry – lovely color and nasty thorns. Cheers, ace
