Five years ago, Damon and I took a cruise to Alaska. Our last stop was Victoria, BC, home to the famous Buchart Gardens. Unfortunately, due to the schedule of our ship, we could only stay at the gardens for one hour just as it was closing. Although we went through very quickly, the beauty of the gardens left a lasting impression on me. I vowed to make it back someday. During our stop in Port Angeles, I finally got to fulfill that vow (which was very satisfying – many times we make promises to ourselves and don’t keep them).
And the experience did not disappoint. What made it better was being there with my boys.
