IN THE CITY

I loved Victoria when I lived here ... and, as cities go, it's still a pretty nice one. But I'm sure aware of my rural lifestyle now ....
I drove one of River's friends home last night right at dark, and it was pouring rain .... it was a 5-minute drive and very nerve-wracking. I can drive 10 minutes on Salt Spring and not even see a street light or another car!

This morning I'm having brekkie with Julie and Robert (my sister was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer early this year, and is coming from Parksville down to the Victoria Cancer Clinic today for a 3-month evaluation - she's doing well on an amazing medication, though) and then I have a few errands to run before the boys get out of school at 2:30-ish. I only get over here once a month or so now, so there's always a list of shopping for stuff that's not available on a little island.

And of course, I do hope to get to my old favorite haunt, Clover Point, for some meditative knitting time!

We feel the same way about Victoria after 10 years away now... but it is still home.
