Welcome to my refreshed blog! I’ve been writing this blog since 2012 and after years of pondering I finally moved from Blogspot to WordPress. There has been a bit of a learning curve over here on WordPress but I am loving the flexibility it gives me. If you have any suggestions or notice any broken […]
This is the last day of our weekend trip to Victoria, BC. Don’t forget to read Day 1 when we took the ferry from Vancouver to Victoria and Day 2 when we explored the captivating coast. Sometimes a restaurant is so loved that when they open in another city, the queue to eat there is even longer […]

It is on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge but there was no parking, so we kept driving along Conzelman Road until we found parking by the side of the mountain. It was a great view from above looking down on the entire bridge.
