Swallows Landing looking out in Esquimalt, BC, in the distance you can see the Olympic Mountains in Washington State.
Well the first weekend of spring 2014 was a bit of a mixed bag of sun, cloud, cold, warmth, and a wee bit of rain. Friday dawned sunny and warmish, it was so nice we had coffee outside. We lingered over coffee because it felt so nice to feel the warmth of sun on my face. We set our plans for the day and decided to take the dog for a good long walk at Langford Lake. Afterwards I sat in a lawnchair soaking up more sun while my hubs helped the neighbour tinker with his new to him vintage 350. It is quite pleasant snoozing in the sun and then hearing a motorcycle roar to life. It prompted me to pay a long overdue visit to my garage and start Scarlet. I haven't ventured out there since I parked her last October, Motorcycle Man has been doing that all winter. Listening to the engine sing to life has definitely stirred my motorcycle adventure feelings.
Today (Sunday) was another stunning spring day, much warmer than Saturday which was overcast and rainy, which made it a stay at home hide kind of day. So again Poocha and I went for a walk. We stopped at a new friend's lovely boutique shop and kayak rental touring company. Poocha has a lnew friend named Sawyer and the puppies were playing and enjoying a walk together.
We stopped at the look-out and it was breathtaking! This overlooks West Bay, this was where my float home was moored when we lived aboard. In the distance you can see the Olympic Mountain range, it was so clear you could see for miles.
