Nora and Isabella love each other. They’re both seasoned international travellers, they love to dance, frolic outdoors, and as only children they have created a special, beautiful, joyful sisterhood. And, these two each have their unique sense of fashion and creativity…as you can see here. I just love these two monkeys!!
Stunning blue skies blessed our recent girls’ getaway to Victoria, B.C. Close-up and personal experiences with a great blue heron and the adorable goats at Beacon Hill Park as well as being splashed by harbor seals at Fisherman’s Wharf were highlights of our visit. Springtime is a great time to see the Great Blue Herons since it’s nesting season. Taking the water taxi to Fisherman’s Wharf for some crispy fish & chips from Barb’s Place and sitting alfresco in the sun made for a great escape from the more-touristy downtown corridor. An unexpected treat was the encounter with the harbor seals visiting the dock. I’m not sure how I feel about feeding the seals but, for one dollar you can buy a sardine to feed the seals. It was entertaining and the girls of course loved it, even after they got splashed full-on with salty seawater in their faces and mouths. After their crying duet, this seal-splashing memory became one of the funnest moments of our trip!
Good company, good food, and the simple joy of walking around charming Victoria, B.C., made for a lovely getaway, just a short ferry ride away from home!! 🙂
