Monday, July 2nd

Our last day in Victoria, BC.

I went for a walk today at 0600hrs to capture the still harbor waters and morning light near Fisherman's Wharf. There is a good sized, house boat community moored in that area which always make great photo subjects.

A row of sailboats at the wharf.

The Gatsby Mansion, built at the beginning of the 20th century by William J. Pendray who made his early fortune in the California Gold Rush. The home is now the forefront of a large, well appointed Hotel.

Update: 2230hrs

We are back in Port Angeles, WA USA!

We visited the Butchar Gardens today. By far, the most famous of all on the island. 'Following are a few photos that barely touch the visual experience.

As our Ferry was departing the inner harbor at Victoria, a float plane landed nearby and had to skirt around our vessel to reach its mooring. In the background are a few of the houseboats I covered earlier today.

For the sailors - A Panamanian Tankers lies in wait outside of Port Angeles.

We are off to central Oregon tomorrow on our return leg home.
