Victoria. Capital of British Columbia. Named for the Queen who inherited the throne at age 18, bore nine children and reigned for 63 yrs. Star of many TV shows and movies.
Carol and I ferried 25 mi across the Strait of Juan de Fuca from Port Angeles, WA to Victoria this afternoon. Never been to Vancouver Island so we’re really looking forward to it.
Here’s the queue on the load up. Most were cars with a handful of RV’s.
It was a 90 min crossing on a very calm and warm day. Still the ship rocked side to side way more than I expected. So we grabbed seats in the middle 🙂
And then we entered Victoria harbor, a gorgeous one.
Then it was off to Ft Victoria RV Park about 5 mi away. Took nearly 50 minutes due to Fri rush hour in a town that’s really compact. Once we finished making camp, it was time for an adult beverage and then a quiet night.
