Today after our walk, we'll likely head west toward Hatley Castle and Fort Rodd. Although not that far out of town, traffic falls off a bit and there's some lovely shoreline as well that boasts a variety of sealife including otters and swans. The view of the strait is awesome and even on a winter day, worth shooting. The last few times we've visited, there have been deer in the park. They're a little shy, but might hold still for a photo!
Out that way is the oldest pub in BC, Six Mile House, which boasts 150 years of history including the Candian prohibition. Who knew? They have some delightful food but we've only eaten there a few times. I posted the menu because hey, it's all about the food, right!
We also went to the great canadian casino out there once. Odd. Instead of the waitresses pushing cocktails like they do in Vegas, they push a tea cart. Seriously. Would you like tea with your one armed bandit? Earl Grey? Chamomille?
Tonights plans are up in the air. It being New Years eve, we could go back to Spinnakers and attend their bash. They have a great three course dinner in the dining room, and then you can fight for space up in the pub for live music with a band called The Gruff. (must google them....)[ results are in: they apprear to be blue grass/folk... interesting]
Or we could go here... but frankly the menu scares me....FIREWEED HONEY GLAZED LAMBSICLES? What the heck in a lambsicle? No... spare me, I beg you. People can't possibly want a frozen chunk of lamb. Although I guess it's worth noting that there is a lot more lamb on offer up there than you find in the states. This makes TOG really happy. I do not care for lamb so much.
I'll be leaving this as an open option and we'll just let things happen for New Years. Tune in tomorrow, as we make a break for the wide open spaces!
