I woke up on Wednesday morning to the sounds of seagulls, a tugboat moving around the Upper Harbour, and the wind in a neighbour's halyards -- these are the sounds of Victoria, and I love it!

Besides, it's completely spring here...

Two days goes fast, so I didn't get to do everything I would have liked ... I only spent a few minutes with Mischa and Jason, and didn't even get a chance to call friends. But I did get the monthly marina paperwork done, and renewed a prescription and worked on some Fibrefest plans, so that was all good.

Most importantly, I spent some quality time with my favorite little people on a beautiful spring day:

While we were at the beach, our friend Sri called, and came and joined us...

Most of you will remember that Sri's wife Susan, my closest friend, passed away in October ... well, Sri had been diagnosed with cancer just before Susan died, and after an unsuccessful surgery, he is now here in Victoria taking radiation at the cancer clinic for the next six weeks. He's in good spirits, and it seems to be going well for him, but I'm saying my prayers!

And making the time to go for a dinghy ride with my favorite skipper:

I'm back on the 9 a.m. ferry for Vancouver and Whistler this morning. I've had a great time here at home, but I'm excited about going back, too!
