Victoria, the Capitol of British Columbia

Trip Day Nineteen, May 22nd, 2006

Views From ...
View From Our Balcony

We have a front-row seat for Victoria's inner harbor. The famous Empress Hotel is visible through the fog in the center of the picture. The ferry dock is in the background just past the street light on the right. It appears that a ferry was at the dock when the picture was taken at 9:06 AM.

After lunch we walked a couple of blocks to the Royal British Columbia Museum.
They have a large collection of artifacts from the native peoples of the area.
This is a nice way to spend a rainy afternoon in Victoria.

View from the Museum
We were not allowed to take pictures in the museum,
but we were allowed to take pictures of the views. So here are a few.
This appears to be a carillon tower at the corner of the museum property.
