Following our free days in Victoria, we have settled into the usual routine of touring life. We are up each day in time to depart the hotel by around 9:00 AM to travel to the next concert location.

We are up early on Sunday to catch the ferry to Salt Spring Island. The hall there is small and intimate, and this intimacy reminds us of TSP, but the acoustic suffers in comparison with the generous sound of Alix Goolden.

We arrived at the hotel here in Victoria, British Columbia on Friday night at about midnight, which was 3:00 AM Toronto time. The weather is considerably warmer than Toronto, which is nice, but I think we are compensating for this with a sleep deficit.
