Monday, Monday – da doo doo doo

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

So, yesterday was Father’s Day.  And I did spend quite a bit of the day with dad, and mom.  We drove up to West Saanich to the First Unitarian Church of Victoria (don’t worry – not going to get religiously political, or is that politically religious?) to see a concert. There is an early summer concert series here called Eine Kleine Summer Music (  I had never heard of it before, but mom read about it in the Victoria Symphony brochure and got us tickets.  They were doing a Schubert Violin Sonata Trio (violin, viola, cello), a Beethoven Piano trio (violin, piano, cello) and a Shostakovich Piano Quintet (2 violins, viola, cello, piano).  It was overall very enjoyable.


Anyway, the church is located up the peninsula, just past one of the campuses where I work, in the countryside.  Here are some of the views.





And here we are coming up to the church (I confess, this is the views as we were leaving – the views coming in were full of people lined up waiting to get in.  Apparently this is a very popular concert series).




The church itself is bright and cheery on the inside, but the acoustics are a bit on the bright side, however.  Wouldn’t want to hear a brass quintet in there!





Here is the chair I sat behind.


After the concert we trekked back to Victoria (it’s about a 30 minute drive from mom and dad’s to the church) and then hung out a bit before supper. Here is the view onto, and from, their balcony:



You see, we were going out again!  Kevin met us at the condo and we walked the 2 blocks down to Padella Italian Bistro (, the little Italian place (did the name give it away?) near mom and dad’s.  This time I managed shots of all out dinners BEFORE we ate them.  And let me tell you, the meals again were quite delicious – we will be going back!




And main dishes





And, of course, some vino
