Goal 29. Move - Part 2

Well I'm calling it! We have officially moved in. We don't yet have all the boxes unpacked, we still get our mail forwarded and I just got a Jury Summons from Victoria (which I cancelled! Yes!), but we are here permanently. In fact, I did my first grocery shop!

Here are some photos from our trip here and getting settled.

Goal 7: Symphony Splash 2011

This past weekend, in amongst wedding plans for my sisters wedding (in 2 days!!!) we went to Symphony Splash. Symphony Splash is this great free event that happens in Victoria, BC every year on the August Long Weekend.

The Victoria Symphony plays a free show, while set up on a barge. The traditional climatic end is the 1812 Overture complete with real canons and fireworks at the end. It's pretty spectacular. They often feature a local band in the afternoon before the symphony. This year it was the TimeBenders, who played popular music from the 50's right up to Lady Gaga. They were also pretty spectacular.

We had great seats on the Legislature Lawn and a bunch of friends and family around. It was a great afternoon, and a great way to end our time in Victoria. We will miss you!
