So as if all heatwaves go quicker than they arrive, my friend Sylvie could not understand what we were talking about upon her arrival at 20C and cooler temperatures for Victoria. Well we tried to impress her with the heat, but unfortunately it did not stick around long enough for her visit.
Day 1 started off with a visit to Butchart Gardens for the first time! Yup, I've been living in Victoria for 2 years now and I had yet to visit. It was a fun visit, but way too touristy for my liking. I'll pass on going back again, unless a few photo bloggers make an appearance in town one day.
Here's a look at the days photos.
That was most of the tour of the gardens. We kept on moving as tourists by the hundreds arrived and it got very crowded!
We toured the city of Sydney for lunch and ended up stopping for a great mini hike at Mt. Doug. It was definitely a jam packed day of beauty.
