Victoria, BC Photos - 2006

We had been to Seattle a few times, but never up to Brittish Columbia so this trip we decided to visit Victoria. Wow! What a beautiful place! It is everything you have heard... We drove up to the Anacortes port and took the ferry. It took a couple hours, but the ride is packed with beautiful scenery as you wind up through the San Juan islands. We even saw a couple Orcas! Once on Victoria, we walked around and say the famous Empress Hotel, the parliament building and then after a short trip north, Butchart Gardens. There really are no words to describe the beauty and amazing foliage. They even have their own cove! How's that for a water feature! You can check out their site HERE.
