My perfect FT Weekend would be...

to return to Victoria, B.C., an enchanting spot I once encountered in 1977. If memory serves and time has been kind, it will be a tranquil

and refreshing contrast with daily life. Is Butchart Gardens still as lush and mystical as I remember? Can I still dig for clams and catch fresh salmon in Witty's Lagoon? High Tea at the Empress with my dear wife should soothe the memory of having skipped it back then because I was traveling alone. I cannot step into the same river twice, but would look forward now to sharing these experiences with her.
