Victoria City, Vancouver Island

Sep 26, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird

National Geographic Sea Bird approached the city and harbor of Victoria, Canada’s capital, in the early morning hours as daylight broke over the cityscape. With its friendly and welcoming residents, Victoria’s museum, gardens, pathways, parks, and waterfronts were a treat to explore. Some of us chose to travel around by bicycle; others chose to go on foot with a guide; and still others struck out alone to view the city’s many gardens, historic alleys, local bistros, coffee shops, and boutiques. At day’s end, we explored the Robert Bateman exhibit, showcasing the artist’s ethereal collection of paintings and sketches of birds and Pacific Northwest wildlife. By the time we made our way back to National Geographic Sea Bird, the day was done. We went to bed looking forward to a new day of exploration.
