My travels

Friday, April 10, 2009


Yesterday I took a BC ferry to Victoria on Vancouver Island.  Victoria is actually the capital of British Columbia .. and it shows.  The grand old buildings, the british style of architecture.  I think Victoria is more british than the british.  They even have double decker buses, mind you they are white.

Also headed out to Butchart Gardens.  Gardens in early spring are wonderful.  Not everything is flowering but there is this feeling of new life everywhere.  Some of the bulbs were just sprouting but the hyacinths were in full bloom and boy could you smell them.  The scent was intoxicating.  And the colours!  The highlight was the sunken garden.  Photos to follow soon.
