SAM + JESS TAKE OVER VICTORIA (PT. 2)

Monday afternoon, we made the trek to Sidney for a walk down memory lane. Jess grew up in Sidney and hadn't been back since our trip a few years ago, so she was super stoked to see everything new and old. We started off our walk down Beacon Ave. at Alexander's for some coffee. I got some crazy concoction of espresso topped with coffee, while Jess opted for a London Fog. Hers was deliciously sweet, and mine was more of a palate cleanser it was so strong! In a good way of course. We completed walking down Beacon Ave. shortly after (it's very, very small), and spent a little time by the ocean at the marina. The funniest thing that I find living in Victoria is that I somehow manage to NOT see the ocean very often even though I do in fact live on an island. It is definitely something that I take for granted, so being down at the marina was so nice. On the way back up Beacon we had hoped to stop at Lunn's for some pastries, but they were ever so sadly closed that day. We peered through the window though, and the items that were in the cases looked devine. Sidney bakery was open (shown above), but we chose not to get anything from there. One of the coolest things that we saw that day was something that Jess and her dad had done many years ago. On a pathway they had carved their initials into wet cement and it was still there! The letters were quite worn down, but you could definitely still make them out. 

I can't quite wrap my head around growing up in such a small city, but the trips back with Jess are always nice. She gets so excited about everything and has lots of stories to share about her childhood. Next time, perhaps I'll give in and we can go to Mineral World.
