One of the great things about living in the Pacific Northwest is that it’s easy to show off for visitors. The Fry Family Quartet took Jim and Mary Kay to Victoria, BC to kick off their visit this weekend.
Any place that offers water taxis as a standard mode of transportation is going to be fun. That’s how we got to dinner most nights in Victoria.
On Saturday we checked out the lovely Butchart Gardens, which never disappoints.
Sunday, before having tea at the Empress, we watched the water taxis perform a choreographed ballet in Victoria Harbour.
For lodging, we stayed at the guest houses attached to Spinnakers, the oldest brewpub in Canada.
We’ve set the bar pretty high for the next few weeks.
