Walking Victoria, BC, A Total Knee Replacement, and Hockey

Having recently traveled to Victoria, BC..I came upon some great reasons to visit that city…

It’s beautiful. Holiday lights are up everywhere. Greenery is plentiful. Landscaping is immaculate. Waterfront has a great walkway. The Empress is stunning.  Butchart Gardens is spectacular.

Great place for exercise. Victoria BC is a wonderful walking community. To say I walked a lot, is an understatement. Thank the powers that be for icing. My bionic knee was very swollen.  This is how I’ll tie in a total knee replacement with this blog post.

Downtown has shop diversity. There is something for everyone here.

Bakeries abound. That’s all I’ll say about that. 🙂 (I forgot to bring my stretch pants).

HOCKEY IS EVERYWHERE!!! (Well, maybe not everywhere…but more than the area I live in). In the restaurant I went to…a game was on a projection screen. Two other games were on smaller televisions. Hockey fans were enjoying their sport. Nice. 🙂

Sports store. The sports store owner and I had a great conversation about hockey. Woohoo!! He even told me some history about the Detroit Red Wings that I didn’t know. Cool…

Buses. A gentleman stepped aboard while sporting a Vancouver Canucks jersey. He just happened to sit in the seat behind me. “So, you like the Canucks, eh?” I asked. “Yep,” he replied. I pointed to my Red Wings jacket…”Detroit Red Wings,” I answered proudly and knowingly. With that, he shook his head, look disgusted, and said “Huh”. I needed to change my course if I was going to get a decent hockey conversation going.

“You know, Luongo is so much fun to watch. He makes his position look so easy. It’s too bad he’s out with that groin injury,” I said. That was the beginning of a wonderful conversation for the remaining of the 20 minute bus trip.

As he got up to leave, I said….”Hey, maybe we’ll see each other at a Canucks game. I like watching your team lose.” He ignored me.

Ah…Canada. It’s great, eh?

    I’m glad that your new knee was up to making what sounds like a glorious trip. Maybe the swelling was a small price to pay compared to how you might have been if you hadn’t had the surgery, I don’t really know because my knees prevented me from taking trips before my bilaterals and unfortunately they aren’t doing well enough for me to do so now. I’m still holding out hope it will get better. And as far as the bakeries, I know you walk regularly as well as use the exercise bike so that took care of any extra calories!
