Victoria

Yesterday Patty Albert and I jumped in the car and drove to Victoria. It was supposed to be +8 and sunny but it felt colder near the open water. We didn't have a plan we just found a place to park then went for a walk. Patty is a real trooper because even tho she has been working extra hard lately and shes not feeling well she never complains of being too tired, cold, or ill. We walked around the downtown and went with Albert to a flag shop as he had been looking for a couple flags to hang in his room. Shortly after that Albert ditched the old folks and got on a bus to go visit a friend. Patty and I decided to walk to China Town where Jodi and I had gone when she was out here. Patty showed me the alley where scenes from Goldie Hawn and Mel Gibson's movie Bird on a Wire were shot. Then we headed back to the car and drove down to the harbour where I usually go whale watching. As luck would have it one of the harbour seals I usually see was hanging out so I bought some fish to feed it. Patty had never seen it before and although she thought it was real cute she wanted no part in feeding it. Albert called by then so we drove over to meet him and pick him up. We then took a drive along the ocean to look at the houses and stopped at a marina where I've gone to see seals before. There were 4 of them hanging out and lots of people feeding them. All in all it was great day and I can't wait till June so I can take Patty back to Victoria to go whale watching with me.
