We started our trip by flying direct to Vancouver, BC and then took a connecting flight to Victoria.
Another view of the hotel. See that blue, blue sky? It was that way for our whole trip, gorgeous crystal clear weather with cool mornings, warm afternoons and not a drop of rain. We were so lucky!
The hotel was right across the street from the harbor.
One of the things that you must do while in Victoria is visit the Butchart Gardens. It was amazing! Below are just a sampling of the umpteen pictures I took.
|I took a lot of pictures of unusual color combinations, like this orange and purple that looked so good together.|
|This is a close-up of the Monkey Puzzle Tree below.|
|This fountain changed shaped and sometimes looked like a butterfly or angel.|
|The Sunken Garden was originally a stone quarry.|
|A glen filled with shade loving plants.|
Tomorrow I'll try to post about Vancouver. I have a busy day and a dinner party here, but I'll try to squeeze it in.
