I just wanted to say a quick “hello” to everyone who reads this blog. I took a hiatus I hadn’t planned to take — apparently I thought that moving was no big deal. I was wrong.
The good news is that we are getting settled in, and I’ve even hosted my first houseguests! The furniture looks great in the house, and I’m making progress on getting the garden set up. Spring has arrived here in breathtaking fashion, and every day we fall more and more in love with our new hometown.
However, there is still much unpacking to be done, and I am a bit tired and bruised from the work. So, I’m going to make it short and sweet today by sharing some photos from last week’s overnight trip to Victoria, B.C. Enjoy!
I’ll be back tomorrow with my weekly blog recommendation,
Great snaps. Some times the heart and soul need a little break.

Glad to “see” you again, Nadine! Moving is hard work. I know you must be very tired. I’m glad you were able to take your trip. Great photos! Spring is a wonderful time for traveling. And for starting a new garden in a new place!

Welcome back !
I love that you are getting settled. “Settled in Seattle”. I just made myself laugh. :); I lived in the Seattle area for 7 years before moving to my home town two years ago. We lived in Redmond and then Kirkland and lastly Bellevue. I loved my time living there. Our first summer there, hubbys’ brother & his wife came for a visit. It was so much fun to explore our new town with them at the same time. 🙂 Victoria is amazing. I just went once. P.S. Thx for the kind word on my blog. 🙂 You made my… Read more »
Thanks for visiting and commenting! I have a sister in Redmond. With the ferries we can get to the city in about two hours with low stress. Yesterday we drove to the Bainbridge Island ferry, walked on, then walked off for an afternoon at the Seattle Art Museum — then got back home in time for dinner. It was great.
I’m looking forward to getting to know you better via your blog! It’s great to connect with people online that I wouldn’t have met otherwise.
