Back to Canada!
What a day! Started a couple of days ago when we went to book ferry tickets to get to Vancouver Island & found they were all sold out as it is a long weekend for USA & Canada (Labour Day). We had to bus back to Vancouver (4hours after delays at customs, then managed to catch the connecting bus to Victoria (via ferry) with 1 min to spare, then bus/ferry voyage took 1.5 hours.
Got into Victoria (capital of British Columbia) late afternoon. Pretty exhausted, so rested for a couple of hours before heading out to walk the town & have dinner.
Boat festival on, so plenty of beautifully restored old boats decorated with plenty of flags. Port looks festive at the moment. City pretty at night with buildings lit up.
