This summer’s ended with more of a whimper than a bang, so I’m doing something fun before heading back to the daily grind.
I’ve booked a hotel and will stay over for a day of wandering and wine after I drop my Boy off for the fall term at university. He’s not thrilled we’ll be hitting the road at 6:30 AM, but I intend to maximize my time in the capital, so an early start is key.
I don’t want to forget anything in my short time there, so I’ve made a list of my favorite Victoria spots. Looking at my inventory (Bon Macaron Patisserie, Crust Bakery, Rogers’ Chocolate, Pagliacci’s Restaurant…) I’m shocked at how many of my faves are food-related.
Eating my way through downtown Victoria before meeting an old friend (and my Boy’s Godmother!) for dinner that evening will be a challenge.
Will I be up to the task? Hopefully, a “can do” attitude and an empty stomach will see me through.
