Winter Vacation

We enjoyed a trip to Victoria British Columbia in December. I got a great rate at the Marriott hotel during their 1/2 off associate rate deal. We had never been there and we ended up having a lot of fun exploring. It is a beautiful place. A little cold during December but pretty to see the lights and Christmas festivities going on.

We explored Victoria, visited the Royal BC Museum and The Butchart Gardens north of the city. I'm sure it is an amazing experience when all the flowers are blooming but it was very pretty with Christmas lights everywhere.

Here are some highlights of our trip:
 On the ferry.
 The Fairmont Empress Victoria (not where we stayed, haha)
 Victoria Inner Harbour
 Out for a stroll.
 In front of the BC Parliament Building.
 The Royal BC Museum lit up at night.
 Looking towards Washington across the Strait.
 Chasing peacocks at Beacon Hill Park.
Christmas light at The Butchart Gardens.
