Yet another place that we are going to have to come back too and this after just seeing the city of Victoria. Why so cool? The views. The Olympic peninsular rises above the sound, all full of snowy capped mountains in a bright blue sky. I would really have liked to get out to the west side of the island, a rugged very remote coastal path ribbons the south west of the island. It is meant to be fun to do, you need ladders and tide tables to complete it. Next time.
We are I am afraid terrible guests, getting quite obsessed by returning home so whilst we are enjoying ourselves here with trips out and being treated to meals in restaurants we have been fretting over departures and the logistics of car return. We are well into the teens of plan options.
I managed to convince Louise to accompany me to Miniature Land, a diorama attraction with models of famous battles. I think I would like to do another one at school, I wonder if I could link it to the Belgium trip. Maybe I could do a less blood thirsty one, the steel works down on the Tyne. I found Miniature land full of ideas that I would be able to use.
Angela got to take Jacob to the bug zoo. Somehow Jacob got his mum to hold huge tarantula spiders and large scorpions. He tried to reassure her that they were not too poisonous, I am not sure how reassured she was.
This morning we say good bye to Victoria (Angela would have liked more time and money for a shopping trip) are we are off to Nanaimo for a bath tub race in the bay and to visit my other cousins.
