Yesterday started with a trip to the beautiful Abkhazi Japanese Garden in the morning, moved on to a couple of hours with Gail Sibley, pastel artist extraordinaire, in the afternoon, and ended with an evening walk along the water to downtown Victoria. What a great day it was.
There was so much to see at the Abkhazi garden: flowers, trees, and a few surprises.
Flowers everywhere, hiding in the shade, peeking out into the sun.
Water featured lilies and turtles.
Mason bee house.

And of course, trees, trees, trees
Then on to a delightful couple of hours at the Moka House coffeeshop to meet Gail Sibley in person and talk about pastels, painting, life, and pastels.
She is tall! Or I’m short. Fisherman’s Wharf behind us.
No photos from the evening walk. I forgot my camera. But it was lovely end to a very fine day.
