Sunrise this morning was a multitude of grays as we pulled into Victoria, our first stop in British Columbia. After clearing customs we split into groups to explore this beautiful city by foot, bike, and bus. Those of us with green thumbs hopped onto a bus and went into the neighborhoods near the coast, learning about the history and architecture as we went by. We visited three gardens, learning about arrangements, species, and care. One of the gardens recently hosted Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge during their visit to Victoria, complete with roses, flowers, trees, and 20,000 volunteer hours to make the place tick!
