We all woke up sweaty from sleeping in the steam room last night. We all took showers and headed out. Eileen headed for the Buchart Gardens and we planned to pick her up late. Amy and I headed to the Blue Fox Cafe for breakfast, it was delicious. After that, we decided to go to the Pacific Undersea Garden in the Victoria Harbour. The Garden was cool. We saw tons of cool fish. Then we saw a diver show, where the diver grabbed fish and showed us each one. We saw lots of huge crab and a huge octopus. Our book promised us there were seals in the garden and since we didn’t see any, I asked the gift shop and she pointed us to a Marina where you can feed seals. We quickly found it on our map and headed there. We bought herring in the gift shop and found two huge seals to feed right outside the door. The seals were very well fed. I got some great shots of a little girl feeding the seals. Our next adventure was to find Mt. Douglas Park, which is the highest point on the island. We didn’t quite find the
Mountain, but we did find a great lookout is one of the nicest neighborhoods on Vancouver Island. After that is was time to pick up Eileen, and we were a little late, as a lot of the street names are the same on Vancouver island. We finally made our way to the garden, and Eileen was there waiting for us. She raved about the garden. It has been in bloom for over 100 years and it was 55 acres. From there we headed to Swartz Bay to get in line for the ferry to Vancouver. This ferry was huge, and it could hold hundreds of cars. The ferry was about 90 minutes and we landed on the mainland around 4pm. We took off with everyone else on the ferry and headed to Vancouver. We weren’t so sure of the directions, but we made it to downtown Vancouver with only a few hiccups. We headed right to Stanley Park to have tea at the tea house. The park is HUGE and we drove almost all the way around the park before finding the Sequoia Grill at the Tea House. We were overtired and very giddy. We walked into the restaurant and
they told us they no longer have tea service. We all cracked up right in the hostess’s face. We had tea and shared dessert. We then headed to our hotel. Tonight, we upgraded out hotel. We stayed at a lovely Westin with a harbour view room. The room was amazing. Heavenly Bed, Terry Robes, and a great view were worth the price. We tried out the beds for a little while, and then headed to the Cannery for dinner. This place was very cool. It was right on the water. We had a lovely dinner with a window seat for a beautiful sunset. They ever had there own dock, where I was able to capture some great snaps. After dinner we headed to Denman street. This street was packed at 10:30 at night on a Thursday. We grabbed a gelato and headed back to the Heavenly Beds for the night.
