From Leavenworth we drove northwest to Anacortes, Washington to catch the ferry to Victoria. I have always loved ferry rides and ones through these San Juan Islands are a favorite.
After we arrived in the city and found our place, first we enjoyed our room with a view: Then we went to find some delectable fish and chips at the famous “Barb’s” which happened to be on the wharf near our unit.Then began several days of walking and talking and enjoying the beautiful city of Victoria. The sun shone every day and it was even the week of full moon, so life was grand!
From our unit it was a lovely stroll around the harbor to the Parliament Building and the Empress Hotel. (Will and Kate had just stayed there a week or so before.)
But tomorrow is another day and we have big plans for it! So our tired feet took us back to our rooms where we hated to shut our eyes to the views outside…but we did.
