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.

After a bit of wondering around various shops filled with bath bombs
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. 
We met up with a few more members of the fam jam a bit later and took a stroll
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.
