The @washingtonfaire put together a great event this weekend! Our first time venturing into the west coast #renaissancefestival world at the #northwestpiratefestival and we had fun! We also had a BIG surprise..... The Tortuga Twins have made a second group and this festival was their FIRST TIME performing!!! Welcome to the west coast. 😍🤩
Shout out to heygrillhey.com for an awesome steak rub recipe and @butterculturenw for fantastic finishing butter for that #reversesear !! @gmcmahon2 is definitely getting the hang of this @traegergrills thing. #homemade
Awesome lunch at Sel Restaurant in Tacoma. @beecherscheese and provolone grilled sandwich (plus 🍅 and greens!). @gmcmahon2 really liked his brussel sprouts and bacon with a poached eggs on top. Should have taken a photo of the awesome ginger mimosa I had (ginger beer and champagne with ginger simple syrup). #yum#eatlocal
There were young, old, churches, banks, yoga studios, emergency rescue services, window cleaners, lumber companies, Jedis, and EVERYTHING in between out today in downtown #victoriabc to celebrate and support #pride !!
Another meal another #pimmscup . Breakfast @jamcafevictoria was phenomenal. The fried oatmeal was so good we are hoofing the leftovers back home. Really good fuel for the #victoriawatertaxi ballet and today before we head home! PS we can see the parade prep from our apartment balcony in China Town. 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈😍
We tried so many awesome things during our food tour! We especially loved the meatball 🍝 from @roastvictoria with the a-maz-ing salsa verda and baked chicharrones. The #macarons from La Roux Patisserie (the best and only French bakery in China town) were beautiful and delicate. And the #focaccia from @latana_victoria was absolutely fantastic 😍🤤. The rest of our stops - including the matcha mango lemonade and the pierogis at Sult Pierogi Bar - were also pretty good. And our host - and the Owner of @atasteofvictoriafoodtours - Andy was so knowledgeable and professional! A real treat. 😁 ... ... ..... ...
Found an arcade last night, commence me taking covert pictures @gmcmahon2 playing games. But #realtalk @quazarsarcade was awesome, great machines that are really well maintained. #pinball ....also that Randy Savage bathroom keyring. 🤣
#latergram our #poutine snack before the whale watching and our dinner @canoebrewpub after. As it turns out I had no idea what a was, lol. A little too ocean for me but the butter cream sauce was amazing! We looooved the crab "beignets" and Greg's salmon was phenomenal. And @gmcmahon2 got to watch the kitchen the whole time, lucky boy.
A few more pictures of our water rescue suits and one picture we got of a calf. In total we saw TWO different transient killer whale pods (one all females and a few calves, the other all females and one adolescent male) and two humpback whales. #peepthatpose#amazing @orcaspiritvic
In awe at the world's tallest free standing totem pole with @gmcmahon2 modeling. Loved strolling through Beacon Hill Park and the Victoria coast line, even took a quick nap on the sun warmed rocks. Waved at the US while we were there - happy Independence Day everyone!
