I decided to pop over to Victoria to
visit the fam and to explore one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
This morning I met up with my sister and we headed into town with the intention
of eating all the food. All of it. First we hit up Cafe Bliss and ordered a
couple of green smoothies and a classic bliss bar. Everything there is vegan,
raw and packed with nutritional goodies and it wasn’t even swarming with hoards
of filthy hippies. I was disappointed that I didn’t have to unpack my stick to
beat them off.
and perfumes we found Rebar, which is another one of those classic
Victoria restaurants that everyone goes to. They have a cookbook that’s pretty
popular back home (now that was one Canadian sounding phrase – back home eh?).
Rebar is certainly a funky looking restaurant with a different colour on every
wall and some seriously zany tablecloths. It was damn good though. I had a
delicious tuna melt (the key seemed to be the layer of relish). I was smiling
like a dog hanging out a car window the entire time I ate it. There was drool
and food everywhere. Jokes.
along the seawall, which is unbeatable. We’ve got beautiful seawall walks in
Vancouver, but there’s something about Victoria’s that is particularly
breathtaking. We went at a particularly beautiful time too. The sun was low
enough in the sky for the sea to be lit up.
Tomorrow I’m heading home. I hope no one minded the change of pace today. It’ll
be back to regular ol’ beauty posts on Tuesday.
