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. I really enjoy spotting my parents house from the seaplane! 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. A coworker and I went to a local seafood restaurant where I had Canadian oysters. I think I prefer the Washington coast oysters. After 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. I took an hour long walk and wished I had more time to explore the beaches! I did explore more of the totem poles outside my hotel and in the Victoria Conference Center across the street. It was beautiful to view the Legislative buildings of Victoria from my balcony at night too! After less than 48 hours in Victoria, I flew back to Seattle. I love that amazing and only 35 minute flight.
