Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt went through season seven of Bachelor in Paradise and left the engaged reality show. Now they are posting adorable photos at places in Greater Victoria.

According to their two social media accounts, they spent days sightseeing and visiting local restaurants.

Pitt is from Toronto and is said to be here to visit family, while Amabile is from Chicago and enjoys the charm of the West Coast.

“It’s a beautiful day today, we haven’t really seen a lot of sun here on the west coast, but today is shaping up to be pretty good,” he said. “I’ll wear Serena’s hat too because I didn’t bring a winter hat.”

Amabile posted a video on Instagram showing the view of Victoria’s Inner Harbor; it appears the couple are staying at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort.

Pitt posted pictures of the couple to the Fairmont Empress tasting Empress 1908 gin. They even dined at the popular Il Terrazzo.

No trip to Vancouver Island during the holiday season is complete without visiting the Butchart Gardens in Brentwood Bay for their light show. Amabile posted a photo of the couple in the light saying “us this Christmas”.

Amabile, who was nicknamed ‘Grocery Store Joe’ for previously owning a grocery store, even stopped by Chinatown in Victoria and posted a photo of the old one. Chinese restaurant Don Mee.

The couple have not announced any wedding plans. Maybe they will consider Vancouver Island now?
