And some clever quip...



Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden

We like the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden.  It's small and very inner city, but it's also like nothing else around here.  It isn't exactly kid safe (there are lots of places for kids to fall in the water or slip down a steep slope) but there are giant koy and turtles to look at.  Chinatown is a nice place for an afternoon walk and the garden gives you a good reason to go down.

Victoria for Thanksgiving

Nara Helen And Caitlin
My mom had a new guest for Thankgiving!  Caitlin from the East Coast Harvey's has just started at UVic and we had not yet had a chance to properly say hello.

Caitlin is studying marine biology (one of my favorite topics) so we needed to find some water.  We considered a drive out to Botanical Beach but the tide isn't that low and it is a long drive with a baby.  The Breakwater has nice access to the ocean and a few good rock outcroppings to do the tide pooling thing.


Of course Nara has never been tide pooling and she is always game to stick her fingers into things.  I was quite surprised to see she like Sea Anemones.

Pumpkins In Patch

Last but not least, we needed to get pumpkins!  There is a great farm down by Island View Beach where you can pick your own pumpkin.  Nara wasn't soo keen on pumpkins but as long as there was someone to pick her up, she was good.

A Visit to the Williams

We have been meaning to visit the my sister and her family for a while but either they were sick or we were sick.  We finally found a weekend where neither family was ill so we went for a visit.  James is growing by leaps and bounds.  He is now standing on furniture under his own power.

It's fall so there are lots of leaves on the ground.  It was a great day to go out for a walk and kick some leaves.
