I just came back from a long weekend in Victoria, BC and what a lovely place! I've wanted to go there for a long time so was super happy to visit for 3 days. Victoria is a lovely little city and is nestled next to the ocean with a temperate climate. The cherry blossoms are out and all the gardens are full of tulips and daffodils so it was lovely to see it in springtime.
I know quite a few folks who are from the west coast so went armed with lots of beta as to where to go, what to do, where to eat etc. My favourite restaurant was the famous Rebar Restaurant. I've seen their vegetarian recipe book but had no idea that they were a restaurant and that they were located in Victoria. Lucky me! The food was fantastic and it doesn't cost a fortune to dine there. In fact, I ended up eating most of my meals there, working my way through their menu, because it was also super healthy and nutritious! Of course, I visited lots of the local coffee shops inbetween, just to keep things in balance! If you find yourself in Victoria, a visit to Rebar should definitely be on your list.
So, after an eating/coffee shop tour of Victoria, it's been time to get back on track. I have Miwok coming up in 8 days. Yikes!
