Summer 2017 Road Trip Eats | Victoria {part 1}

our little foursome just came back from what i can honestly say was one of my favourite family vacations ever.  
we hit the open road super early, like 3am early, for a 10 day road trip adventure that had us see some pretty cool cities.

Day 1 & 2 - Victoria, BC
Day 3 & 4 - Comox, BC 
Day 5 & 6 - Vancouver
Day 7 & 8 - Seattle, WA
Day 9 & 10 - Kelowna/Vernon, BC

we had some amazing accommodations {thanks mr. handsome} along the way and also a great stay with our friends in Comox.

here is a look at all of the tacos we ate, thank you tacofino our fun trip!

disclaimer:  in true Jen form, i took too many photos so this vacation is going to be separated into 5 posts.

up first...

Victoria/Canada Day

what better way to celebrate our countries 150th birthday than in one of the prettiest cities in Canada...Victoria.  in order to get to Victoria in time for the celebration it meant pulling a 16 hour travel day the day before (4.5 hours of ferry travel put a little damper on things, i'm not good at waiting, but we made it!!)

it was a busy weekend in the capital which meant rooms were few and far between, but leave it my wonderful husband to book us into Bear Mountain, a picturesque golf resort just outside the city.
on Canada Day we headed to Victoria really early to sneak in some ocean time, tacofino time, and most importantly fireworks viewing time.  happy birthday Canada!  we sure do love you! we also loved our part 1 of 3 tacofino adventures.  xo.
