The parade started at 9 AM. But we were already gone. I've been off to Victoria, B. C., on Vancouver Island for a meditation retreat. We were headed back to Oregon this morning and found ourselves a bit tangled in the staging for the Victoria Day Parade as we were driving to catch the ferry to the U. S.
Getting on the ferry and driving home were the main Things I get to do today. Before we boarded the ferry we walked past the Empress Hotel searching for a little shop that might offer breakfast items. The Empress Hotel: lodging for our honeymoon 43 years ago in June. She still looks great. And so do we. And one of these days we'll be there for the parade.
