Moving to a new state and then actually living on an island has been quite an adventure. I'm not in Oklahoma anymore, Toto! The summer's here are so incredible and there's tons to do right here on Bainbridge Island and across the sound in Seattle but we decided to take a little trip to Victoria, B.C..  Did you hear that? A little trip. That's right. From here, you can do it in a day. We actually opted to stay over one night but seriously, you could do it in a day. We drove from Bainbridge to Port Angeles, WA  (maybe 45 minutes) and from there we took the Coho Ferry to Victoria.  If you're leaving from the Seattle side, take the Ferry (Clipper) to Victoria. I will say, I did get a teeny bit queasy on the Coho but I have pretty bad motion sickness and it wasn't as bad as a car trip to the racetrack in Arkansas! (Highway 7--UGH) I didn't BARF! There's a little cafe and it's a nice ride over, about 90 minutes long.  I'll have a few posts to get it all in but it was a BLAST!

Beautiful day, high tea, Fairmont hotel, and some of the BEST food and drinks EVER! I can still taste this breakfast we had. Stay tuned for all the details BUT first up is LUNCH! We arrived just before lunch time so we were a little early for check in so we parked our overnight gear and started out in search of food.

We decided to let social media and apps guide our culinary trek. We landed at a place -- not on the beaten path in Victoria but still in walking distance from our hotel (FYI the biggest, baddest hotel) -- we found on UrbanSpoon. Of course there were several but we were intrigued by this one. Guess why?  It's called:  THE PINK BICYCLE!! Yes! You read that right. P-I-N-K! My favorite! Jay, of course, totally indulged me in that decision and we marched off in search of THE PINK BICYCLE. It's touted as a burger genius bar so, hey, WE ARE IN!

It's all PINK! 
The drink menu at The Pink Bicycle was really nice. Look! What do you think I had? 

YOU GUESSED IT! The PINK one! It was very tasty too! (Yes, it was lunchtime but I'M ON VACATION!)

And the winner is:   The Truffle Mushroom burger! With the roasted beet and arugula salad. OMG! Heaven! (well, just this side of it anyway)

Yep! There really is a PINK BICYCLE  in the window!  Jay had the Blue Cheese burger with the truffle fries. It was equally DE-LISH!

come back to see where we went next! We decided to do a Signature Cocktail tour while we were there. Here's a hint:

Our dirty work clothes, rotten jeans, and tank top days are WAY OVER, so we were totally in the clear! 

If you're heading to Victoria, B.C., I would totally recommend a trip to The Pink Bicycle if you are a carnivore. The Burgers are definitely some of the best we've ever eaten and we are from Cow Country! 1008 Blanshard Street, Victoria, BC and on the web at

Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful info being shared freely out there. ekfcafegfdgeegdd

Kelsey contacted me and said she'd like to have her senior portraits reflect her personality and not just sit on a Mustang hood. Haha! That made me laugh and I knew right away we would be kindred spirits and have a lot of fun creating her senior pics. Kelsey is a senior at Broken Arrow High School and into the Arts. Yay! More fun. We were actually timing this session to coincide with a very short haircut she was getting for the role of Anne Frank. Theatre and music - an accomplished violinist - Kelsey has a creative edge that sets her apart and makes you want to try to keep up with her! Her sense of personal style and confidence in who she is makes her a joy to be with and made my job pretty easy.   At our planning session, she brought all these darling vintage things and then actually had a bike, a blue chair and books for her session. I was thrilled! It was so fun! We loaded up the truck and let the fun begin! Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Kelsey has a love for nature and the simpler, joyful things in life.  At just almost 18, she has an old soul that serves her well. Calm, patient, kind and so so sweet. Here's a few from our time together. (Note: NO Mustang)

So much fun Kelsey. You will go far (maybe not on that bike :D, haha) on whatever road you choose!
