As our friends in western Washington know, walking to see the Christmas lights was not possible last evening. The same wind storm that hit the Seattle area came into Victoria just as we were preparing to take a night time walk. We chose the wiser action of sitting by the fireplace and reading.
Today we took a walk in the sunshine around noon. I’m still learning how to use this camera so we walked around the neighborhood looking for test subjects. There is an interesting custom here of hanging oversize ornaments in bare deciduous trees.
We found this very unique sculpture in a front yard. These boots definitely were not made for walking!
Tonight we had another wonderful dinner at Il Covo Trattoria. Following dinner we walked downtown to see and photograph the Christmas lights. Here is a small sample.
Even boats get decorated in the marinas.
Now it’s time for bed.
