My sister Janet and husband John had tickets to a John Denver tribute show at a theatre in Victoria for last Wednesday evening then John won a set of tickets for the theatre in Nanaimo last night which is much closer.   Not wanting the tickets to go to waste, they offered them to us.  It took us a while to wrap our heads around the gift and since we were going to Victoria anyway on Friday for Aileen's eye appointment, Aileen came up with the idea of staying in a hotel for a couple of nights.  We got a hotel close enough that we could walk to the concert.  The show itself was excellent!
While we were in Victoria, we got together with Richard, Robin and Georgia.  We also picked up our friend Bev D and went for lunch.  We enjoyed morning walks along the Victoria waterfront although the weather wasn't the greatest.  Yesterday when we first got to the first pier, a sudden gust of wind ripped my cap off and deposited it in the ocean.  Not being an easy access down to the shore, not wanting to go wading in the cold slimy water and not wanting to carry a wet hat for another hour, I bid the hat a fond farewell and carried on.
Last year at a local home show, we chatted with a contractor who specializes in cabinet refinishing in place.  We hunted him up at this year's show and we now have really gleaming, new looking cabinet doors.  He touched up and put the protective coat on all the matching wall coverings.  Living full time in an RV requires such expenditures over time since they aren't designed for full time use.
The photos in this post are from the past couple of weeks but don't include any from this week's trip to Victoria.  Those are still sitting waiting for editing.
