We got to the hotel, got settled, and drove around Victoria for dinner. We found a sign for a bookstore, and I
As soon as I woke up, I made more tea and read. Yes, I know you're supposed to not read on a vacation, but I couldn't help it! Firefight was so good!!
We walked around Chinatown and investigated quite a few small bookstores and shops.

After walking around and buying a few books
because I have no self-control, we found ourselves by a really super healthy restaurant. I expected to not be impressed by birdseed, but then I found that I enjoyed birdseed when it was in a soup/veggie bowl that was positively delicious. I'm healthy now!Quick Note: I do believe that is the first picture of myself that I have ever posted on here! Granted, it's just my back, but still, monumental occasion.
|This was a veggie bowl that we had.|
There was a delightful chocolate place that I graced with my chocolate knowledge. We bought our chocolate goodies and continued to walk around, enjoying the sights and MORE BOOKSTORES!
That's right, I found even more bookstores and tried to buy all the books because I have no self control.
And it had two escalators! Up and down, which I rode more than once.
Because I am a child.
Who love escalators.
We found a place called DavidsTea that was positively enchanting! It's kind of like Teavana, but better.
Sorry Teavana. We were able to get some tea and sit in the cushy comfy couchy area they provided. In fact, I have been recently informed by a reliable source also known as my mother that DavidsTea just opened a shop in the mall near my home. Celebration! Jovial merriment!
We went back to the hotel, swam in the pool, and then went to bed. It was a good day.
We were on a time crunch, trying to eat breakfast and get ready as fast as we could because we had a reservation and, dangit, we were going to be on time! What was this oh so important, like changing reservation for? For ziplining!
I've been ziplining before, in Arkansas, but it was just one mile long zipline that was so fun! But before that, I was Little Evangeline in Victoria BC, standing on a ziplining platform and shaking with fear. Little Me chickened out. Now, years later, I returned with a vengeance. It was so fun! It was all hardcore ziplining, and on one of the ziplines, it felt like flying.
After ziplining, we went back to the hotel and had a pretty lazy evening. Luckily, my mother and I were able to gather everyone up to take a walk around the park nearby. We took the walk around around sunset, and it was just lovely.
We went back to the super healthy restaurant from before and had a breakfast of granola, almond milk, tea, and a green smoothie.
We watched a couple movies on the drive back. The weather was beautiful and warm, and it was the perfect end to a vacation.
