Bye Bye Canada

Two frame pictures chronicle our journey in British Colombia : June 7, that first day in Vancouver, we did Capilano suspension bridge and Grouse Mountain. Two weeks from that day, after having visited Seattle and cruised the Inside Passage , we were back in British Colombia and with this β€œfinale frame picture” in Victoria , we ended a memorable chapter in beautiful Canada

Afetrnoon Tea at The Empress Hotel

Honestly, I didn’t regret leaving the exquisite Butchart gardens for our next destination was well worth it. The afternoon tea at the Empress Hotel is a double win: this historic hotel – one of the oldest in Victoria, 1908- is a must visit and I absolutely relish this quintessentially English tradition : the array of savoury small sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, marmalade, colourful cakes and tea poured from a beautiful teapot.
