Victoria is about the water....there is a large Navy yard and lots cool looking botas in the inner harbour. The weather was sucky, so I was not getting what I was hoping for, at all.
From the Sitka in Victoria
Fresh apple salsa..and sometimes with pear.
4 cups finely sliced apple.
1 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
4tbsp olive oil
2 1/4 cups fine diced cucumber
2 cups fine diced tomato
1 tsp fresh pressed garlic
80 mls of alime juice
2 tbsp siracha..this is a hot sauce you will find at most stores.
1 tbsp jalapeno pepper
The key to this is as finely chopped/diced as possible.
Add the lime, garlic and peppers together first, then toss into the diced ingredients.
And..having had two lattes, and some water...I am walking around, realize I should have peed before leaving the lunch place and am beginning to feel...urgent. And I walk past this metal thing on the sidewalk and have to stop..back up...OH YEAH..its a sidewalk bathroom! Like..right on, Victoria!!!
Just driving around Beacon Hill Park
This would be a private home.....
The important part of the building
Then, just driving around and stopping at a couple of the veggie places....
And at the Goldstream Provincial Park Falls....only accessible from southbound, too. The highway is divided and dangerous for pedestrians.
