Weekend In Victoria, B.C.

 From my post last week, we took a ferry ride from Vancouver all the way to Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. This city on the southern tip of Vancouver Island is quintessentially British and Royal. The city is dedicated to Queen Victoria as her presence is found around the city from her statue in front of the B.C. Parliament, to the waterfront, named Fort Victoria since 1843, to the elegant and majestic The Fairmont Empress Hotel where visiting Heads of State and Royalty usually stay when they come for a visit. The hotel is also famous for its authentic Afternoon Tea and they even sell the china in their Hotel shop. The whole city is not that big. It is perfect for spending a day walking around and enjoying the scenery. We even stopped at a Victorian English Pub near the Fort Victoria, Bard & Banker, for a typical pub lunch of Fish N' Chips with potato chips batter and some sangria. Luckily, the weather cooperated and added the beautiful sunshine to our visit.
