A Victorian fall

I just returned from a weekend trip up to Victoria, BC. I’ve been to Victoria a handful of times, but my visits always occurred during the summer months. We booked our trip back in August when a family owned timeshare had a special on the resort. We took the Victoria Clipper from Seattle on Saturday morning and we returned Monday night. Our hotel was about a five-minute walk from the ferry docks on the harbor near Fisherman’s Wharf.

We were incredibly lucky to have the sun out all weekend. Although I loved Victoria before the trip, I had no idea how amazing fall is. First of all, the city is way less crowded. Many of the tourist type activities were closing down  though like the water taxis and restaurants at Fisherman’s Wharf. But other than that, it is a perfect time to visit.

I’ll be adding a few more posts about different activities that we did. Almost all of the trips I blog about, I come home with the desire to do the exact same trip the following year. I sure love this part of the world.
