Yes Victoria, there is such a thing as a free lunch

We have just returned from a holiday in Oak Bay

We have just returned from a holiday in Oak Bay.

During our visit we dined at Swans Hotel restaurant in Victoria and had an excellent meal and service. We spoke to a young couple at the table next to us, mentioning among other things, that we were on holiday from the U.K. After finishing their drinks etc. they bid us good day and wished us to enjoy a happy holiday. A few moments later the waitress came and said the couple had paid our bill.

We were bewildered and did not know what to say or do. We would like to express our thanks to this young couple and wish them well for a healthy and prosperous future.
