The day after we returned to Vancouver from Edmonton, we re-packed our bags and headed to Victoria, BC the following morning. I’ve been to Victoria numerous times in the past both with family and when Robert worked as a tour guide back in the day. If there was room on his bus, I would tag along on some days and as he drove through his usual route of the coast, Beacon Hill Park, Butchart Gardens, and downtown Victoria (Empress, Parliament Buildings).
With only two days in the City and with Robert working on a project, I had the opportunity to stroll through Victoria and see it from a brand new perspective. Yes, I did stop at a few “regular” tourist haunts as I happened to be staying close by, but I also discovered new-to-me neighbourhoods and eateries. Above are a few snapshots I took during our first day there and two more field trips are planned for later this week!
