So, my plan was to blog about this last week but I was sick Monday & Tuesday and super busy the rest of the week. Better late than never though!

We went to Victoria, BC two weekends ago for our Anniversary. I was a little worried at how I would do since I was just getting over the flu and still getting "morning" sickness. Amazingly enough I felt great pretty much the whole weekend! I felt better each day and wasn't nauseous the whole weekend. It was nice to be able to enjoy the time together and not have to spend the whole weekend on the couch in the hotel room!

When we got to Victoria we still had a few hours before we could check into our hotel, so we took a tour out to the Butchart Gardens. What a beautiful place! Because of how late in the year it was there really weren't too many flowers in bloom, but we got to enjoy the fall colors!

It was so cold that day!

The Sunken Gardens....so beautiful!

Eric getting in touch with his inner Asian as we head into the Japanese Garden.

The colors were absolutely gorgeous!

They were starting to decorate for Christmas. They do the 12 days of Christmas we found the "Maids of Milking"

We walked so much I got a little thirsty! (The little sign below says "This water not safe for drinking")

So this boar is from Italy (I don't remember full story and Eric is still asleep!) and they would rub his snout for luck. Eric felt the need for some luck!

So that is pretty much our first day in Victoria. I think I will leave that for now as this is already super long!


  1. How fun! Happy belated anniversary! I can't believe I forgot to tell you since it's the day after Yubo's birthday.

    Anyhow, next time you guys wanna vacation, tell us. We have WorldMark. Can get you into a nice resort without having to pay so much. =)

  2. I love that place! I want to go! Looks like you had the garden to yourself!
