Foto Friday

Foul Bay Panorama

Hola Bloggies:

This Friday sees me traveling once again. This time, I will be boarding a plane and heading to spend the next 2+ weeks on beautiful Vancouver Island off of the West Coast of British Columbia.

I am no stranger to this area of the country. In fact, I spent four years living in Victoria.

I can honestly say that Victoria is a city that changed my life. The girl that arrived in that city was massively overweight, lacking in self-confidence, and in a bad relationship. The girl that left had taken charge of her life, lost a ton of weight, ran a 10K, ended that bad relationship, became a lawyer, and met her future husband. Not bad, eh!?

Clearly I have a soft spot for Van Isle.

And since I’m going to assume you’re curious – I took this picture from the patio of my very first place in Victoria. I was blessed enough to spend several years at the foot of Foul Bay Road with a glorious view of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympic Mountains (Washington State) on the other side. This picture hasn’t been retouched in any way. It really was that glorious.

 

Question: What are your plans for this weekend?

i love what victoria has offered me but im definitely happy when i will move. its much too small for me, or at least cuz ive been here too long without much travelling elsewhere. but i do know the magical feeling it has when u come back, definitely 'home sweet home'

Ahhhh... I want to go to Victoria SO bad!! I'm half contemplating moving there or to Vancouver after my year-long lease is up here in Toronto. I mean, they must need personal trainers there too, right? ;)

Hope you're having a blast this weekend! I hit up Taste of the Danforth today, and as you know, scoping out Honest Ed's tomorrow :P
