Holiday Monday

Had a great day, the guys went fishing and Vicky decided to hang out with me for the day. We decided that we should go to the Sooke Fine Arts show which had been on for a week at Seaparc. It was fantastic!!; I had no idea of the artistic talent in the local area. There was such a range of techniques in this juried art show that it is hard to know where to start. There was a large variety of paintings, sculpture, woodwork, fibreart, blown glass, ceramics, photography and varied mixed media items. The display was very professionally done with nice wide aisles and superb lighting. There were definitely some great objects I would buy if I won the lottery, I don't think they were overpriced for the work that went into them but definitely out of my price range. Well worth going to and I will definitely go next year.
We then went to the fairly new restaurant in town called Nut Pop Thai and it was great. The food, service and atmosphere was great and we had more than enough food so brouhgt the rest home. What I had left from mine was enough for both of us for lunch today as well.
