Catching Up: Victoria (Part Three)

Victoria's downtown area is extremely walkable, and I took advantage of this.  I poked through the wonderful stores streetside, and managed to find a yarn store.

Beehive Wool, which is in a heritage building. Of course I had to buy stuff there!  I got some sock yarn, a project bag, and some fibre dyed by Sweet Georgia.

If I remember correctly, the building was originally a Mason's building.  I loved looking at all the old buildings there; in Regina, our oldest buildings are only around 100 years old.  

This statue of Emily Carr is by the Empress Hotel (the building in the background).  There's a monkey on her shoulder, and behind her the little dog is staring intently at it. 

Can't you just see the mischief in that monkey, teasing the little dog?

Finally, this was breakfast one morning.  A waffle, with a Nutella sauce poured over it, with fresh strawberries.  So good!



  1. Victoria is a fascinating city - l lived there for 5 years! Is the Satin Moon Quilt Shop still there? in Market Square? I can't even remember how many times I walked to and from the Provincial Archives (I worked there) right past the Empress the buildings and views are burned into my memories!

  2. I think Satin Moon is still there, but I didn't spot it in my wanders. It and Knotty by Nature are on the list for the next time I go out there.
