summer 2013 | victoria bc photographer

we have kicked off our summer vacation with a little trip up island. i would love to start off by saying how magical the trip was with the kids. but honestly - it was a lot of bickering and fighting...are we there yet?...i'm cold... i'm hot...this sucks...the list goes on and on. we didn't have an agenda set or anything, we knew our favourite spots and found ourselves at combs daily enjoying ice cream and bee-stings. we also visited tiger lily farms and went at the end of the day when it was quiet and got to milk goats, feed baby farm animals and ride on ponies.

olivia was quite a treat this vacation. i'm hoping it's just a 5 year old thing and something that will pass, because seeing englishman river falls to her was 'the worst day of her life ever' LOL. our favourite stop was the kinsol trestle off shawnigan lake road. the trestle is the largest in the commonwealth - it's huge! and has been rehabilitated from its original condition so safe for everyone to walk across. 

i didn't realize how many photos i actually took until i got home and uploaded them up. so here they are - my favourite shots from our trip :)
