Jam packed full of events and sights to see, tensions ran high amid all the chaotic adventures.
The tour of the gardens was spectacular, the whale watching had me on the edge of my seat and offered up a face and mouth full of salt water. I had no idea it was that salty, although I don’t think I ever really thought of it before. The city of Victoria BC is beautiful, and clean, with so many shops and a long, long history!
Below are a few of the pics from my trip …
Sea Lions ~
The Govenor’s House was amazing, the rooms … most of them … were ‘no entry’ but what we were able to see was incredible! Ahhh, Queen Victoria … if the DNA test was accurate, I am to believe she is my distant relative!!
Once back in Seattle the tour of the new glass floors in the Space Needle was interesting.
The Chilulay Glass Museum was phenomenal …
… and the Phantom of the Opera made me cry.
This vacation was chuck full of so much, the nerve body was ramped up with energies and the patience wore thin. It will take me a week to absorb all the details. What a whirl-wind! I am grateful my friend and I can still say we are … friends … even when the inner Dragon and Tiger shows up!!
It is time to get back to routine.
As I swam in a sea of a go-go-go schedule, chaotic emotion, and frustration which challenged the work I’ve been doing, I’ve neglected my inner sanctuary … for four days.
There is much to be learned from this experience. My inner fortress needs built up … weak spots have been observed, and a fresh approach to the work remaining is at hand.
SO!! Here we go again.
