On our seventh day, we docked at Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. What a gorgeous city!
Renowned as Canada's "City of Gardens", Victoria and its gardens burst into bloom year round. We rode a classic English double decker bus to the downtown area.
Their majestic Parliament Buildings and the ivy-covered Empress Hotel are some of Canada's most recognizable landmarks. The gardens throughout the city are stunning and are illuminated by thousands of hidden lights.
My sister Jeannie and her daughter Gina in front of the parliament building which was lit up with over 3,000 lights.
The majority of their downtown old buildings were lit up - it was a beautiful sight.
What impressed me the most were the unbelievable flowers. They had two of these baskets hanging from every streetlight. They were awesome. Guess that's where they get the name as the "Garden City". Victoria averages over 2,000 hours of sunshine per year.
Till next time, Judy
