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 “finale frame picture” in Victoria , we ended a memorable chapter in beautiful Canada 🌲🌳🌸☘️🌼🌱🌻🌿🌺🍃
Honestly, I didn’t regret leaving the exquisite Butchart gardens for High tea at the Empress Hotel. That was 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.
Stop and Smell the roses 🌹
The peace and serenity found in Japanese gardens transcend the distant archipelago ⛩
A “secret garden” with its own demure charm
No, I’m not flashing my ring , just adjusting my sunglasses while trying to retrieve my breath lost at point during the pleasant stroll around these magical gardens🌸☘️🌼🍀🌷🌿🌺
This is the rebellious noo!-I-don’t-want- to-leave pose…However, the hubby’s “I’m sure you are going to love it there” lured me outside these enchanting gardens..
Any guess where to ? 😉
