An early November visit to Victoria, BC may offer a variety of weather and sights but we were able to enjoy some sunshine that offers the best of great fall colors among the many tree lined streets. We did see some clouds but they didn’t stay long and views were spectacular.

The morning mist covers the nearby golf course giving a peaceful view. The heron stands at the edge of the pond which allows a reflection of him on the rippled water. Ducks and geese visit the course regularly, too. Unobstructed morning sunrises are amazing.

Victoria is rich in history, it is the second oldest city in Western Canada and became incorporated as a city in 1862. Ross Bay Cemetery was opened in 1872 and is the oldest surviving formal landscape design in BC. This cemetery became the final resting place for many famous people, including Emily Carr, Billy Barker, Sir James Douglas who was the first governor in BC, as well as many premiers who followed him.
With only two days to spend in Victoria visiting wonderful friends and our incredible grandson, we were lucky to be able to see so many great sights that Victoria offers. Not enough time to do it all but we sure enjoyed what we did see. Until next time……..
