Victoria!

Had a great time. Folks still here - so bloggy time is limited. Here is a very brief, pictorial overview:

Butchart Gardens (very worth seeing!)


(and we were very grateful it wasn't raining!)

We ate a great amount of good food (shown here: Rebar - all vegetarian goodness)

...and chocolate (of course)...


... Snow White's poisoned apples... (cinnamon flavored :-)

Chinatown -


-ornamentation galore!
The Empress Hotel (with a fabulous High Tea)


The Royal BC Museum


The view from my hotel room....

Hopefully more later -

Oh Canada...etc...
I'm glad your having fun. It's funny I'm on the other coast and I've been to Maine lots but not B.C. in some ways I feel closer to Maine.

That photo of Buchart Gardens is so amazing, it almost looks fake, it's so perfect! I'm glad you are having some fun travels!

Hello. This is my first visit here and I feel so at home. Seeing Victoria and Bouchart Gardens is such a beautiful reminder of my own visit there many years ago. Annie
