On the spur of the moment, we decided to drive "somewhere" outside of Victoria, but wanted to come back to the flat on the same day. Sooke sounded good enough to try. We drove. We stopped, again on the spur of the moment, at a garden centre (of course!) unfortunately they didn't have what I needed (hanging baskets inserts) but the gentleman there was kind enough to suggest we visit three close by attractions: French Beach, The Potholes and Wiffen Spit Park. This picture was taken at our last stop of the day at the fantastic and again breathtaking French Beach Park. Those are the Olympic mountain range on the horizon. What a fantastic place Vancouver Island is!
