Thanks to a flight from Victoria to Ottawa my week was three hours shorter than usual! Despite the lost time I still managed to cram in a bunch of misadventures

The first few days of the week were my last few days of vacation in Victoria. On Monday I visited with some family and had a glorious lunch at The Pink Bicycle, followed by a beautiful drive along Dallas Road out to Clover Point. We saw ships sailing and dogs walking and kites flying. It was a perfect summer day by the ocean. On Tuesday we went to the petting zoo! Formally I think it’s known as the Beacon Hill Children’s Farm, and there aren’t really that many animals to pet there, just goats. But none of that matters because they have my favourite animals in the world – piggies! Unfortunately the piggies weren’t too photogenic so here’s a beautiful peacock which casual stroll around everywhere in Beacon Hill Park.

After bidding adieu to Victoria I hopped a flight back to Ottawa to enjoy a few days of alone time at home before Craig followed me back. In that time I experimented with my new camera by photographing random collections of objects in my office, caught up on some emails, and got down to some serious blog planning. I’ve got some new ideas in store that I’m really excited to share so stay tuned for that!

That’s it for my week, what did you get up to?? Let me know in the comments.
