We celebrated Christmas across the pond in Victoria. It's only 20 miles as the crow flies, but that puny crow couldn't carry both of us at the same time so we took the ferry. It's tradition to have tea at Murchie's and I'm all about tradition. Or is it that I'm all about ignoring tradition? I forget.

The sunken garden.
I couldn't leave you without food highlights.
Now let's all go clean up the Christmas leftovers, pack away the decorations, and get ready to welcome 2017. May all your dreams be pleasant and all your wishes come true.
