We packed a lot of activities for our last week in B.C. But first, I’m going to mention some of the things we saw and experienced during our last week that were completely random and unexpected. During my last post, I forgot to mention the amazing restaurant we visited after whale watching. It’s called “The Pink Bicycle” and their veggie burgers are the best I have ever eaten! (Better than White Spot or The Works) They have three different kinds-three!-and we sampled the black bean and portabella burgers. SO freakin’ good!:
The fries and sauce were delicious too and they had some cool wall art:
If you’re ever in Victoria, go to this restaurant. You won’t regret it! After eating, we also shopped around a bit and I spotted some interesting stuff along the way and of course snapped photos.
We also saw this lingerie/sex shop. Do you remember Rainbow Brite?Well now you can dress up like her AND turn on your signficant other! Woo! Who doesn’t find 80s toons or programming “sexy” honestly? (Note-I didn’t find any Teddy Ruxpin or Polkaroo costumes. Shucks! LOL)
We also spotted this guy on the boardwalk. Hubby dropped some change into his pot and he changed his pose to say thanks!
On our way home, we also saw this sign and I loved it!
It says “Beware of Attack Penguin” and I must have them-The penguin and the sign! LOL. After touristing around all day, we also drank bubble tea from the best place there-Panacea.
Vancouver and Victoria have a very large Asian population and that equals lots of bubble tea, sushi and Chinese restaurants. Which is awesome! At Panacea, they mix up different flavours, creating some tasty combinations. I thought you needed “special” equipment to make the stuff, but all you really need is a blender and tapioca pearls. (Plus, some other commonly found ingredients) Since I love the stuff WAY too much, I’ve decided to try and make my own at some point.
Well that’s it for this post, I’ll leave you with one more picture that I took of the moon from our B&B balcony. We got upgraded at no extra cost for the nice room and I could have spent all night on that balcony meditating and looking at stars.
Just one more post and that will be it for our trip in B.C.! 🙂
