    Victoria

    May 21 in Canada

    I write this G&T in hand listening to Mike & the Mechanics on our sunny balcony on Victoria Day, a public holiday. What a day!
    We left our excellent hotel on Robson headed down to the floatplane. We were in time to catch the 10.30 Harbourair flight to Victoria. So easy, a bakers dozen on the plane plus pilot, safety briefing on an iPad, calm conditions , we headed out, revved up and away we went, out over the suspension bridge down river and across to Vancouver Island.
    Smooth landing and we wondered where our suitcases were? In the float it turned out. This being Victoria Day the bands were playing , roads closed and festivities going on. The last majorettes passed in time for us to cross to our Parkside hotel. There we left our luggage and headed for Fisherman’s Wharf a couple of km round the harbour. Barb’s renowned F&C and ginormous Ice-creams made lunch. We caught a H2O water taxi back to Empress and thence to our hotel apartment where we had been upgraded to a corner suite with chocs and another anniversary card! Brilliant!!
    We tour ourselves away to book whale watching for the morrow and supermarket for provisions ( I must cook the sockeye in a mo). Pool and now balcony- what more could you ask for. BC Pinot Noir with the fish. More demain.

    Victoria

    August 29, 2017 in Canada

    So we are playing a little bit of catch up after an interesting day yesterday. Starting out with collecting our car from the airport and then playing chicken with right hand turns on our way to the Calipino Suspension Bridge. OMG that was truly amazing and scary. Gill and Steve thank you for Tig's experience. IT truly did wobble, but not helped by some of the other people on the other side. After visiting, we thought we might have some time to go up to Grouse mountain, on arrival we found out that they had had some sightings of bears, but unfortunately we didn't really have time to take the trail. And also it was sooooooooooooooooooooo hot. So we had a quick look around, we had wanted to go to see the lumberjack's but that meant going up on the gondola, which we hadn't really planned in. So off we went to find the ferry to Victoria. Then came Day 2. Last night we did find a really cool bar for dinner and live music. I even contemplated eating oysters. But Gilly P I am going to save that until I am with you . Under close supervision. One pint and we were out for the count. Not bad having been awake since 2.30 in the morning.Read more

    Victoria - Day 2 catch up day

    August 29, 2017 in Canada

    Today was a day of firsts, first time we've been in a seaplane, and first time I heard Tig say he enjoyed some Gardens. Tig surprised me with a trip around Victoria via seaplane, all very exciting, even though some of our passengers didn't think so! Then off to Butchart Gardens - thank you for the recommendation A&A - it was amazing, so many colours working in harmony in the different gardens.
    Tonight its another walk, to a famous fish n chip place, then maybe a ride home in water taxi
