Victoria Streets

We didn't get a car, so we ended up walking everywhere during our brief Victoria vacation. Fortunately, all the main attraction lie within a short distance of one another. Even so, my feet hurt by the end, and we were all quite soaked from the rain.

The family posed in front of the Empress Hotel in the photograph above.

We did get to ride a double decker bus later in the day. Ridership fares were a whole $2.25 for adults, and $1.40 for children.

No trip would be complete without my classic pose in front of some major monument or building. We didn't intend for the picture to turn out this way, but I notice that I am standing between the native totem pole and the British-style Parliament Building. Is this some kind of sub-conscious commentary on the inner cultural conflicts of my mind?

Looks, & sounds, like a wonderful trip. Victoria is beautiful! I have never been, but always intended to on one of my Seattle trips. Maybe next time. Thanks for taking me along via your wonderful photos & commentary.

Have a beautiful weekend!!

Blessed be...

Jen.... it's pretty easy to get to Victoria from Seattle.... just take the Clipper and in 2 and a half hours you're there.

Thanks Oklahoma... we had a great time.
