Today we awoke in the heart of Victoria, a beatiful and vibrant city here on the south end of Vancouver Island. Today we took in all the city had to offer; historical and architectural walks, bicycle tours, trips to the Royal British Columbia Musuem, garden tours, all culminating in a private reception at the Robert Bateman Center and Gallery. A fantastic final day here in Canada.

"Waking Up with Dolphins" Coffee brewed; eggs digested Feeling strong and well rested Out on deck, binoculars keen Ocean surface a gleaming sheen Sudden shock, twisting neck Someone yells, what the heck?! Graceful swimming, gentle spouts Lots of smiles and gleeful shouts Tall black fins, soft white back To share what they know is what I lack A family of orca is sharing our morning The sun is shining, and my spirits are soaring Cameras shutter, some stand with a look of stun This ocean family has a young one! What a way to start the day Bon voyage little family, be on your merry way!
