Canadian Adventure -Vancouver Island British Columbia|North American Travel|

I have been in Canada for 10  days now and it is passing so quickly. Why am I in Canada? well I have to say the reason behind it is pretty amazing, I am here to meet two very special identical twin boys Sebastian and Nathaniel who were born on the 24th June.  (thank you Charlie & Phil)

Whilst they live in Victoria, today we took them to see some of their surroundings in Sidney, a rather genteel little town a few miles away.

Everything there is to see is on the sea front and it is so pretty. It reminds me of an English seaside town but in a time gone by. There are no amusement arcades only people fishing off the pontoon and quaint looking shops. There are lots of restaurants serving rather delicious sea food, straight out of the ocean.

Its very strange to think that British Columbia is on the Pacific coast, the same as my beautiful Peru, so I am very happy that we are all sharing an ocean!

Pretty flowers everywhere

Spectacular sea views. I am told you can see both the Rockies and Olympus mountains! but there was too much cloud cover.
