My last trip to Victoria

IMG_0793 It seems bittersweet but I will no longer travel to Victoria for work. I flew out on a foggy morning two weeks ago, and thank goodness, there were no delays. IMG_0802I really enjoy spotting my parents house from the seaplane! IMG_0806 I arrived in Victoria and immediately went to the clinic that I was monitoring at, so I didn’t get to appreciate my hotel room view much. I had a balcony this time with a slight view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, but mostly of the Empress. IMG_0861IMG_0863A coworker and I went to a local seafood restaurant where I had Canadian oysters. I think I prefer the Washington coast oysters. IMG_0866After dinner, I went for a walk along Douglas St and Dallas Road, which goes along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It was a gorgeous path especially at sunset. The Olympic Mountains were so majestic and the water was wonderful to watch too.IMG_0870 I took an hour long walk and wished I had more time to explore the beaches! IMG_0877 IMG_0872IMG_0893I did explore more of the totem poles outside IMG_0914 IMG_0916my hotel and in the Victoria Conference Center across the street. IMG_0931 IMG_0932 It was beautiful to view the Legislative buildings of Victoria from my balcony at night too! IMG_0934 After less than 48 hours in Victoria, I flew back to Seattle. IMG_0937 I love that amazing and only 35 minute flight. IMG_0982 IMG_1015
