Finally at our destination holiday spot, AAWWW !
Sunday, August 26, 2012
Well, we're finally here -- drove all day yesterday and most of the day today and the a 1.5 hour ferry ride and we have arrived, exhausted but excited.
We are in Victoria, British Columbia on the west coast of Canada and the weather is beautiful, not too hot, not too chilly. Went for a long walk when I arrived, picked some blackberries on the way, fresh off the bushes, yummy, always one of my favorite things to do when I am here.
Stopped at a beautiful clothing store on the way to the ferry (go there every time I come out here, they always have a big sale this time of year) ....... picked up 4 pairs of pants, two blazers, two dresses and a shirt for just over $240.00 total. Name brand clothes too, one dress is by designer Joseph Ripkoff from Canada for $39.99 !! Could NOT believe it, regular price $227.00. Also bought some Simon Chang jeans $19.99, regular cost is $110.00. I needed some more new clothes after loosing so much weight, this is the third time I have had to shop for smaller clothes, getting smaller all the time. This time I got smarter and bought a bit snug, so should be OK for a while. In fact, with this lot, I may have a tailor adjust some of the items if they get too big. It will be worth the cost.
Well, enough about that. Will try to blog again soon and keep you posted on my vacation, gotta rub it in you know.
Until I write again, take care all and enjoy your WORK week, tee-hee (sorry !!) Bye for now.
