For the 4th of July long weekend, we took a trip to Vancouver Island! It's easy to remember; it's the one where Vancouver isn't, also not to be confused with Vancouver, Oregon which isn't even in British Columbia.
We took the ferry from Seattle to Victoria early on Friday morning, passing right by the spot where the fireworks are set off each year in Elliot Bay. The baby was very good for most of the way but he often gets tired and emotional so...
Presenting for the first time anywhere in the world, evidence of Owain being a miserable git.
The area's premier tourist attraction is Butchart Gardens, described by one of Heather's friends as "Disney Land... but Flowers".
On Saturday evening, Heather an I ate seafood and I smoked a sneaky Cuban cigar. Owain managed to get some food in his gob, but not much. Tidy.
On Saturday, Owain had his first swim. Actually, he didn't really swim at all. I suggested we let him go and see if he would float. Heather vetoed that idea.
Later, we visited Miniature World. There's not a lot I can say about Miniature World that isn't covered in the name.
Then, we went Whale watching and saw a Minke.
And that's what I did on my 4th of July holiday weekend.
