Our last activity in Victoria was fish and chips and fancy ice cream. Yum!

While our big girls were out doing big girls things with their cousin, Lola, Conor and I took the littles to the breakwater and Dallas beach. The boats and harbor planes were a big hit!

This was a sweet little outing. I took my daughters to afternoon tea with Allison and Quinn. It was definitely something out of the ordinary and fun to do before Holly and Greta outgrow this sort of activity. After our tea, we toured the gardens and then did a little bit of watercolor with Auntie Allison.

We spent a fun little evening boating with Conor's brother and his family. I was surprised at how warm the lake water was but I guess that's what happens when it doesn't freeze over in the winter! Holly and Greta were able to do some extra boating and then they also slept over with Lola. It was a cousin win!

The highlight of our trip to Victoria was our day in East Sooke. Conor and I rented wet suits and we went snorkeling with John and Hudson. There were moon jellyfish everywhere, in fact, Quinn was catching them and trapping them in a tide pool. Snorkeling showed me how out of this world the ocean is. It was so cool! We found crabs and big purple starfishes. It was really, really cool. Our older girls went snorkeling too - Holly used my wet suit and Greta borrowed one from Allison. Maeve loved playing on shore with her cousins and Enoch liked climbing and exploring. It was a super fun day and while we all were sunburned, we loved it!

Here's a link to a video my bro made of our adventures!
