Isn't it funny when you do the same drive over and over again but you never take the time to stop and look at the place you're driving through (especially when it's a beautiful spot like this.) I often go back to Victoria for visits with friends and family. It really is my home even if I have lived on the west coast of the island for over a year now. I still feel like Ucluelet is my home too but in a different sense. I grew up in Victoria and that's where my roots are, my family home, my closest friendships were made there and so much that I love about that city still brings me back. However, I have been realizing how amazing it is where I live right now too. This drive is scary to some but to Dave and I it's sort of engraved in our minds now because we do it so often. The winter can be quite scary if there's a lot of snow or rain but in the spring and fall it is most beautiful. I always look out the window at this river and hope to see a bear fishing, sadly that hasn't happened yet but it is the most beautiful spot.
We decided to finally stop here and have a look around on our Victoria last week. There's a bridge you can get across on the other side which we will hopefully check out this summer. Dave took these great shots of me and this beautiful surrounding before we hopped back in the car to get on our way again. I'm wearing a Topshop blouse that I've had for some time now that I still reach for all the time. It has such beautiful details like the bell sleeves and tie at the back of the neck. It is slightly sheer yet the floral print makes it not see through. I thought it would be fun to wear it with something I have never done before, my Free People overalls. I love these overalls and have so much fun wearing them with different tops or sweaters. Soon I'll be able to wear the with t-shirts and off the shoulder tops for summer. I cannot wait! The seasons are definitely changing now and it is finally warming up!
