Anniversary Dinner

Sooke Harbour House Inn
has a remarkable restaurant.

They also have remarkable organic herb gardens.
From the gardens the chef picks edible flowers and herbs
to prepare creative gourmet meals.

We arrived early so we could tour the gardens.
Although I did not see any butterflies
I was pleased to see lots of bees.

Many of the perennial herbs here are annuals in my herb gardens.
I talked with one of the gardeners.
She and I talked about companion planting and climate change.
I asked about butterflies. She said many butterflies come to the gardens. She did not know the varieties.
Dinner was sublime.
Each course was beautifully presented. Our meal was nicely paced. We ate flowers.
I left full and inspired.

Dearest Sherry,

It sounds like your anniversary dinner was just lovely!

I adore the bubble and the bee, and the thunderbird totem is very cool too.

Much love,

Dearest Sprite,
This was a awesome dinner...
I will always remember it.
While we were dining my husband and I recalled many anniversary dinners. Our 35th Anniversary trip and special day will be one I will treasure.
The Totems in British Columbia are very cool. It pleased me so very much to see how Canada is honouring the people of the First Nation.
May we also honor the First Nation, the American Indians. May we learn to live as they did, one with the land and the sky. May we learn the way of peace.

Dear Mary,
Thank you. We had a magical day.
My husband is kind and generous. Our trip was a celebration of our marriage.
