We've been planning a trip to Victoria BC over Christmas. Because we're still pre-kids we feel like we can get away from my family on holidays. So on the 23rd we're driving up to Port Angeles, catching the ferry to Victoria, and staying at a little hotel downtown. On Christmas eve we're going to go to the Butchart Gardens to look at the lights. I'm not sure if anything in the city is open on Christmas Day, but we'll be close enough to the water that we can go walk outside; and then maybe spend a little time sightseeing on Boxing Day. We'll be back on the 27th or 28th, depending on whether we spend any time with Cory's dad.
I know it's only the 4th of July, but it's time to start thinking about Christmas already. I'm making a snowman ornament prototype, and I'll post pictures if it turns out OK.
