If you ever asked A or I which coast of Canada has our heart, we would both respond the East Coast! in a heartbeat. It’s where we met, attended University and lived post school – we were young, wild and free! All that being said, I had never been to the west coast of Canada before and after a recent visit, its really hard to chose just one! Victoria was really beautiful and charmed us beyond belief. We were visiting with A’s sister who played the most gracious hostess (like there were any doubts).
SEE // Victoria is a great, small, city! It’s easy to walk around everywhere which is awesome and there are plenty of places to check out. We visited some beautiful parks and the most obvious destination – the sea side. There was this long walk along the coast filled with doggies, wish Mackie was there. We also fed some seals which were really cool (see video below!).

:: Seriously huge leaves! ::
:: A cool van and the ocean ::
:: Quite the view! :: :: Where I picked up a piece of driftwood as a souvenir ::
:: Insane green, lushness ::
:: Harbourside lunch ::
EAT // I don’t have many food or restaurant pics since I lost the when I got a new phone but here’s a quick rundown if you are planning a trip! We tried the Steamship by the water for happy hour and buck a shuck which was to die for. We had a LOVELY dinner at the 10 Acres which truly supports the farm to table movement and it was mild enough to even sit on their patio. For brunch we went to this awesome spot called Bubby’s Kitchen in Cook Street Village (where we stayed) and then Jam Cafe which was also really wicked.
:: We were able to feed the CUTEST seals!!! ::
::I mean, look at their faces! ::
Hope to see you again soon, Victoria!
