[victoria vacation, day 2, part 2]

Day 2, continued.
Victoria is the capital of British Columbia, the most western of Canada's provinces.
Victoria is on Vancouver Island.
The weather is mild in the winter and warm in the summer. Half the rain of mainland Vancouver. Many people retire to Victoria because of it's climate.

I had bought a $2 frisbee and we had so much fun playing it in front of the legislative building. Activities don't have to be expensive to be fun!

We walked the waterfront admiring aboriginal people making and selling their art. We also watched a funny busker.

We found a great little pizza place and then an awesome park with many totem poles (Thunderbird Park). We ended the day by playing more frisbee.

The west coast is known for it's Redwood trees. They grow to be so large! This tree was only about 100 years old and look how big it was already.

Prince of Whales boats for going on whale watching tours. :)

Horse carriages were a common sight in downtown area.
