Lost and found

We were on a mission…but easily distracted. We’d checked out the Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria’s Harbor a few days ago and decided to return to try the oysters (him) and chowder (her) at a less crowded time. A few days later, we left our apartment and headed for the path running along the water’s edge. How did we get slowed down with one distraction after another?

We looked over the seawall and far below a lovely lost sun hat floated in the shallow water.

We found a violet balloon resting on the pebbly beach nearby.

Time to move on to the wharf, but one more stop for the flowers.

Now our pace picked up. We rounded a bend and glanced down. STOP! See the otters sleeping on the rocks?

Finally we made it to Fisherman’s Wharf! We hoped our timing would work, and it did. (From our limited experience, 3pm seems to be least crowded.)

While we waited for our order, we studied the menu and decided what to get on our next visit.

Fried oysters and salmon chowder garnished with smoked salmon. $18.90 Canadian ($15.20 US).

The day started with lost items in the surf and ended with a nice find, The Fish Store – worth a return trip.
