Darwin's Cafe in Tofino's Botanical Gardens
is all lit up for Christmas.
With a December pass, the cost of one event,
one can attend an evening's entertainment
every night in December,
and also wander the gardens to enjoy the lights.
Tonight the Tofino-Ucluelet Choir gave us two hours
of rousing songs - some Christmas songs,
with interesting arrangements, but many others as well,
and some solo performances by talented
members of the group.
One of the best Christmas concerts I have ever been to.
This is Darwin's Cafe, where the magic happens.
This wooden heron, in the pond,
caught my eye.
A bike in a tree.
Another view of the pond.
This lit up tunnel was fun to walk through.
This is a viewpoint looking over the inlet.
A good spot for watching the
spring and fall bird migrations.
A wonderful event.
I am so glad I went,
tempting as it was to stay home
in my jammies.
I must get to more of these events.
I am always blissed out
when I do.
There is so much talent in this community.
Tomorrow, I am bussing down-Island
to my daughter's in Victoria
for a few days.
Happy holidays, friends!
