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
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.
The Butchard Gardens
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 ?
