Victoria

This trip was taken last June 12-14, 2010. It was my third trip but my family’s first to Victoria, BC and we had a great time! Most of the pictures were taken by my brother Francis.

We started our trip by driving to Port Angeles to catch the Victoria Express. Before we got on the ferry, we grabbed a few bites at the Port Angeles Farmers’ Market. The ride was pleasant and the weather was fantastic.

The hustle and bustle at the Inner Harbour welcomed us.

We stayed at the Huntingdon Hotel which was conveniently located across the ferry dock. It was clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced.

The family waiting for Thai lunch. Yes, we like Asian food.

The streets of downtown with historic buildings.

Bastion Square

We stopped for coffee at Murchie’s where Francis spilled coffee on his pants! This prompted a trip to the mall 😉 for a new pair.

Welcome to Chinatown!

Fan Tan Alley – the narrowest street in Canada.

Dinner was at Ebizo. Perfectly cooked meats and the taste of summer in the vegetables. I highly recommend this place.

Fisherman’s Wharf was walking distance from our hotel and was a nice break from the downtown crowd.

Halibut fish and chips, calamari, and clam chowder from Barb’s. I like my fish fresh and cooked right and I was happy with this meal. I highly recommend it.

On our last night, Francis and I went out for a night photo shoot. This is the Inner Harbour with the Parliament Building in the background.

Another great trip in the Pacific Northwest 🙂

    Camping sounds like fun. I think my parents appreciated the hotel in this case.
