Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Sep 24, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


Early this morning we tied up to the customs dock in Victoria harbor on the southeast end of Vancouver Island as the sun was rising. After clearing customs, we dispersed for our various activities which included cycling, a secret garden tour, a historical walking tour, an architectural tour, and a visit to the British Columbia Museum.

It was a bit chilly and windy in the morning, but the sun came out for the afternoon and it turned into a glorious day. We reconvened at the ship, put our fancy clothes on and walked along the harbor to the Robert Bateman center for a reception and a wonderful viewing of art, complete with hors d’oeuvre’s and libations.

We strolled back along the harbor to the ship for dinner as the sun was setting and the sky was turning pink.
