We arrived home late last night. I am exhausted from traveling but rejuvenated from such a dreamy time away. It was wonderful spending time with Letha in Seattle for the first few days. We tried to fit in all the girly things possible since she is heading out to Uganda soon. She lives in such a charming part of town where we strolled and shopped boutiques. My favorite parts were laying on her bed giggling, going through her closet and sharing stories until late. More on this trip soon when I am a bit more coherent.
Boho Boy met me in Seattle and we took the ferry over to Victoria, British Columbia. This place is one of my most favorite on earth. It feels like a Utopia of sorts. I already miss it. Besides strolling around the uber gorgeous downtown, we actually drove up into the woods (only 30 minutes away). Here we hiked up to the Sooke Potholes. The cedar trees were tall and majestic, the water rushing down into falls was surreal. We then of course later got our fix at an Irish pub to watch the ice hockey playoffs along with the other local die hard hockey fans. Here we were made to feel at home and met and hung out with the coolest guy that we swore was the spitting image of a younger Tom Hanks. So Boho Boy kept calling him "Wilson"...a joke this guy has heard far too many times. We also ran into a couple from San Diego that are riding their bicycles across North America and filming the whole gig. How random to meet someone in B.C. from your home town in California!
Here are some pictures that will better explain our beautiful trip as I am a wee bit too tired to do so:
