We left Lee's house at 6:00 am in order to make the 8:30 ferry in Anacortes over to Sidney on Vancouver Island. Reservations had been made, but they still require you be there 90 minutes ahead. We were the first trailer in line and couldn't believe it when a 2nd Casita pulled in right behind us. Believe me, you don't usually see two of us in one spot!
We spent two nights in Weir's Beach RV Resort in Victoria with an ocean front site and hopefully the pictures display how beautiful this was.
We spent most of one day in Victoria, BC's capital city. The Legislative Buildings, including The Parliament Building, are spectacular This seaside destination boasts a mild climate with lust, green vegetation and many beaches and parks. There are city bus tours and horse-drawn carriages readily avaiable, as well as new and historic shopping districts. The Empress Hotel was built in 1908 and it's a treat to be served High Tea there. Victoria is famous for the Butchart Gardens, which we visited several years ago. We could not take Annie there, so decided to just view our pictures from the past. We enjoy the fact that Victoria is "dog friendly", Annie received so many pats and hugs. Weather in this area allows one to eat outside and noone minds a dog as long as they behave. She was certainly a tired puppy that evening.
Victoria is a city full of museums, parks and hiking trails. A person could spend weeks visting everything. Hopefully one day we can return and stay much longer.
