Cool new things are always popping up in Victoria. Here’s another little place I like for coffee (or tea, etc) – Hey Happy Coffee, 560 Johnson Street, Victoria BC.

Here are some pics from an early morning walk about a month ago. There was a mighty storm a-brew’n; didn’t really amount to anything tho!

A few days ago was pretty much like a summer’s day here on the west coast. I had a little walk through Beacon Hill Park and found many flowers and so many shades of the brightest greens.

This park holds only a small portion of the creek, much of which is now covered by roadways.

Stumbled on this pretty little park in Oak Bay a couple weeks ago, full of birds and blossoms. More info here, here and here.

It was a gorgeous spring day yesterday. I had a walking adventure with our new friend Sprocket and his humans. We found a lovely little public dock just past Banfield Park in Vic West. The Gorge Waterway was perfectly still and it was quiet and peaceful. Stopped at Fol Epi and Cafe Fantastico at Dockside Green on the way home for delicious snacks and tea.

From the dock we daydreamed about this gorgeous house with a lovely big deck that overlooks the Gorge.
