The weekend of March 17-18 saw my folks fly out to Victoria.  Maria and I picked them up at the airport Friday March 16 after dark and took them over to the Delta Ocean Point hotel where they spent the next couple nights.

Over the course of the weekend, Maria and I showed my parents... err... they're more like best friends now - around Victoria.  We had them over to the house, drove around the city some, walked downtown, went shopping and sampled a number of restaurants, pubs, and lounges.  

Put another way... the weekend turned into something of one big, long pub-crawl.  Haha!  We went to Spinnakers Brewery Pub, the lounge at the Delta hotel, Nautical Nellies Seafood Restaurant, and the Sticky Wicket pub and restaurant.  The four of us then met up with our old friends Greg and Adriana, and the six of us had one hell of a night, starting at the Keg, then Swans Brewpub, followed by a fantastic dinner experience at Il Terrazzo (an Italian restaurant with a lot of character).  The night culminated with a most enjoyable (albeit, slightly fuzzy and ill-remembered) wine/cheese tasting put on by Adriana, at hers and Greg's place.

While we were a little slow to get going the following morning, my poor parents had a very short sleep, before they had to get back to the airport and deal with a most friendly - NOT! - security agent.

All it all, it was one of the best weekends of our stay in Victoria!
