Howdy there pretty ponies! Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Summer weather has arrived at last! It is hard not to be exhilarated by the blue skies and enveloping warmth.   Here are a few things tickling our fancy this summery Sunday:

Summer would not be summer without at least one road trip. Last week, an impromptu trek through Ladysmith yielded an unexpected boon.  Ambling through the historic district of the picturesque hilltop town, we stumbled upon Old Town Bakery. Lured in by heavenly aromas, a bustling atmosphere, and a bulging display case, we sought sustenance in the form of a ham and cheese quiche, a spicy chicken curry roll, and a blueberry almond cinnamon bun.  While the savoury items were tasty, it was the cinnamon roll that truly impressed.  Topped with a handful of plump, juicy blueberries and crunchy flaked almonds, the moist, not too sweet roll was a revelation. A staff member informed us that that customers flock from all over the island for the signature cinnamon rolls.  After sampling these bountiful beauties ourselves, we believe her 100%.  The renown is real.  Old Town Bakery = old school baking at its finest.

Moving right along. Did you know that spicy foods can cool your body temperature? Ergo, when we want to cool down, we head down to I Kyu Noodle on Fisgard for a bowl of Shanghai dumplings.  Paired with a tall glass of ice cold honey-lime soda, these savoury porcine pillows cool us down without weighing us down.  And, at just $9.95, for a large serving, this meal gets Paltry Pete, Victoria’s only value oriented rooster’s offiical stamp of approval. Check out the dumpling delight:  https://www.instagram.com/p/BIa3NljBBtk/?taken-by=horsingaroundvictoria  See our original review of I Kyu Noodle here: http://www.horsingaroundvictoria.com/horsing-arounds-weekly-shout/

Finally, Midge Mod, our fashionista about town, knows that when it comes to summer wardrobe, we want to be cool and comfortable yet still look pulled together.  Right ladies?   This jumpsuit from Spank Boutique, with its slouchy silhouette and sexy racer back, is just the ticket (it also comes in a darker wash).  See here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BJGwmBKh120/?taken-by=horsingaroundvictoria .  Pair with an armful of slinky bangles and some kicky espadrilles and you’ll be ready for anything.

Well, there you have it folks, edition of W.S.O.  We’d love to hear about your summer adventures.  Are you hitting the road this year or is it summer of staycation? Visit our facebook or twitter page and tell Uncle Monty and the gang all about it.  As always, we love hearing from you.

Until next time!

Love, Monty, Pete, and the whole gang at H.A. H.Q.
