Victoria, Canada

In May we had a great chance to go with some friends to Victoria, Canada. I had never been to Canada, and I'd been real keen to go, so I was quite excited about this opportunity. Plus, the more I heard about Victoria, the more it sounded like my kind of place. And it was really wonderful! I'm definitely hoping to go back soon.

The drive up through Washington is quite beautiful, driving along Puget Sound and then the Olympic mountains come into view. We took the ferry from Port Angeles direct to downtown Victoria, which was quite exciting.

We visited the famous Butchart Gardens, which were quite impressive. Next time I'm staying for afternoon tea.

And we also spent a lot of time just walking around the beautiful city.

Plus we couldn't miss out on tea time! I'm always a fan of places that believe in tea time.



Jordan's highlight was probably the board game cafe we found, where we spent a fun evening trying out some new games.

And for the way home we took the ferry over to Vancouver for a quick stop before heading back to Oregon.


A very fun trip! And a great first time to Canada.

Clearly I've given away that I'm a bit on vacation at the moment! When I posted Monday's post, I shared the completely wrong bundle! Ha ha. That bundle will officially be out in a month, but I do have this fun one for you now!
