San Juan Sailing Day 4 – Victoria

Not much to write about today as we did no sailing. We spent the day exploring the city of Victoria. We started the day with breakfast at Starbucks (some habits are hard to change). Next we took a walk along the waterfront.

The only thing we took a picture of was this huge ship whose job is to lay undersea fiber optic cables.

Since there’s not much to write about, I’ll throw in another picture of Foxy Freda. Here she is looking pretty at the dock. She’s starting to feel like home.

For lunch we ate at the sticky wicket pub  and had fish tacos. The bartender was funny. She spilled part of a beer on the bar near a British woman and just laughed it off. I think she said “Oh No!” which seemed like a pretty tame thing to say. The British woman didn’t have much humor about it though, which took some of the fun out of it.

We wanted to get away from the touristy waterfront for dinner so we walked to Ithaka Greek Restaurant. We had eaten mediocre Greek food in Anacortes and wanted to see if we could do better in Victoria. The service was good and the food was delicious. We had lamb souvlaki.  Our waitress good-naturedly gave us a hard time about needing to carry a pen just for Americans. Apparently American credit cards are the only credit cards that require a signature.
