Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter. Just back from a wonderful trip to Victoria/Vancouver. We have family in both locations. I must admit I found the rain and cloud a bit much but family overcame the downside. My feet are just now getting dry/warm.
Downtown Victoria is very interesting with its many little unique shops, eating establishments and places for afternoon tea. The famous Empress hotel is presently getting a facelift; we did a walkabout and discovered that even afternoon tea would strain the budget.
