Victoria in hours

48

3 ferry rides. 3 national landmarks. One passport. Lots of coffee. Seattle to Victoria and back again.

FERRY RIDE no. 1

First sail was on the Washington State Ferry into Sidney, British Columbia on a bright, sunny day. Calm waters, affectionate sun.

LANDMARK no. 1

Once I arrived in Sidney, BC, my first destination was the Fisgard National Lighthouse and Fort. About 20 minutes west of downtown Victoria , it was nestled between beaches and forestry. The fort is still intact from its battalion days.

FISGARD LIGHTHOUSE

LANDMARK no. 2

After the lighthouse, I drove into the city of Victoria to walk around the city centre. The Parliament Building is magnificent with lush grounds while overlooking the port.

PARLIAMENT HOUSE

LANDMARK no. 3

I dedicated Sunday for a morning stroll through Butchart Gardens. Beautiful, manicured and very British with afternoon tea and hidden gardens. Magical!

BUTCHART GARDENS

FERRY RIDE no. 2

I departed on the M.V. Coho from Victoria, BC the following day. The water is still wild from the beginning of time. And the mountains loomed in the distance.

FERRY RIDE no. 3

After arriving in Port Angeles on a very rocky and tumultuous ride, I drove around the Olympic National Park on route 101 to Bainbridge Island to catch the ferry back to Seattle during twilight. This was the shortest trip on the water and the most soothing.
