Victoria, capital of British Columbia, sits on the southern end of Vancouver Island. We travelled from Vancouver to Victoria by coach and ferry. Luckily our coach was at the front of the ferry so we were able to watch the mechanism of the ferry door lowering as we arrived at Vancouver Island.
We checked in at our hotel in Victoria. There is an amazing light fitting in the lobby that reminds me of prawn crackers.
Ruth and I then went on a horse drawn carriage tour of a heritage district near our hotel. Our horse was called Sam.
We then had a walk along the waterfront before ending up in an excellent seafood restaurant for dinner. I looked longingly at the seaplanes as going on one is definitely on my bucket list.
