Victoria, British Columbia

Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia and is located on Vancouver Island, about a 1 1/2 hour ferry ride from the mainland of British Columbia.

It is famous for its Aboriginal Arts, fishing, wildlife, mild climate, and local seafood.

We ended up spending a few days here recently. It was not nearly long enough.
