V is for Victoria

It's been awhile since our last confession posting. We are sorry about that. Too much life got in the way. But, we come bearing pictures so we trust you will let this incident pass.

This week, Neil came to visit us in Vancouver. Actually he is still here. To entertain him better, we decided to go to Victoria for some weekend mischief. We had a centrally located hotel and spend 24 hours eating, sleeping, and shopping. It was fun. Highlights included:

1. Jon's attempt at panhandling
2. The 40 naked cyclists who interrupted our patio-beer conversation on culture, Canadian unity, and home-grown terrorism with something else to talk about
3. The sun
4. Beer

I suppose none of those things are native to Victoria, but we aren't much of the tourist-type anyway. Plus, whale-watching was expensive, and lying in the sun all day was far more tempting.

Here are some of our pics from the trip, which are self-explanatory, right? This weekend, we will be in Whistler, soaking it up in our private hot tub while watching some NHL! Whoo hoo!
All for now
Lazily yours,
