We totally fell in loved with downtown Victoria! Now I know why our friends, Dan and Linda, live on Vancouver Island. Around the inner harbor is so picturesque and has a lot of charm. The old majestic Empress Hotel is filled with history. The Capitol building sits over looking the harbor. The horse drawn carriages provide a memorable ride for tourists. We had so much fun watching all the activity in the harbor: The small water taxi jotting in and out delivering passengers, sea planes were coming and going and the ferry arriving and departing.
We finished the morning with lunch at the Bard & Banker Pub. The pub was an old bank that was converted to a restaurant. Watching the above video makes me feel like I'm there again.
