Point No Point (so named because explorers approaching from one direction saw a distinct point, whereas from the other direction they saw no point) is a lovely ocean-side resort west of Sooke, B.C.
We spent a couple days there with Andrew's sister, Clare. We had a lovely cabin; wandered the trails and beach checking out the tide pools; read our books by a roaring fire while it rained outside; sat in the hot tub for a while; ate delicious meals at the restaurant; enjoyed a beautiful sunset; and, best of all, saw a couple orca whales meander by. A rare sighting we were told!

Before heading back to Victoria, we stopped at the Victoria Butterfly Gardens. I'm not patient enough to take butterfly photos but liked the bright colours of these few.
