Spock does Milestones on the Inner Harbour Victoria BC

Last night we had a birthday celebration at Milestones on the Inner Harbour. The meal was great and the complimentary "Ganache Torte" they gave me with the sparkling candle was so delicious it bordered on being criminal. My friend Terry said he saw Spock in the restaurant and we all thought the wine was getting to him. Later when we were leaving, I saw this guy who was about 6'9" tall and when I approached him, he had an uncanny resemblance to Spock. Maybe he still might be out there.....who knows what the far reaches of the Universe will unfold? The young hostess at the door never heard of Spock....yikes...I think I have had too many birthdays. If you look closely behind Spock, up and to the right you will see the beam of light locking on to Spock. I heard him say, "beam me up Scotty-some idiot is taking my picture" and he vanished.

We have been blessed by an amazing August and September. Blue Sky, warm temperatures...keep it coming, we love it. I hope you had the opportunity to share part of this great summer and I hope you had an opportunity to visit French Beach.

Olympic View Golf Course - A Victoria Gem

Today we played the beautiful and amazingly scenic Olympic View Golf Course. The staff we met were very friendly and helpful and the course was in good shape as usual. This course has a lot of unique holes that set this course apart from others in Greater Victora. It doesn't get much better than this. The restaurant and lounge serves great food and it has one of the best views from the outside deck. The proshop is very well equipped. It is really worth a visit if you have not been there before. If you have been there before, you did come back, right? The weather was amazing....I take credit for that! I certainly urge you to give it a try.
