Victoria-Travel Day

Road Tripping

Today we make our way to Victoria, British Columbia.  Jon picked up our rental car and we left our hotel in Kent Washington.  We did stop at Tulalip Casino to try my luck before lunch time.  I did not do very well.  So we stopped and had lunch at a Panera close by then made our way to the Canadian Border.

Canadian Border


The wait at the Peace Arch crossing was an insane amount of time.  We went for the other crossing which was still a long time but not as long.  When we finally made it through the border we had  just enough time to get to the ferry.  We were already running late for the early check in and had to have a potty stop before we even got close.


We made it on time to be in line to board the ferry.  The worst case scenario is that we would have to wait for the next one.  Jon drove the car onto the ferry and we got out of the car to sit in upper decks to see the water and all the Islands we would pass.  We even had a nice conversation  with an Australian couple who were just going to be in Victoria for the night before moving on.


We made it.  Yay!  There was rush hour traffic even on Sunday afternoon in Victoria.  Most of us may have just got off of the Ferry.  We made it to our condo for a week and check out this view.  Once we unpacked and changed we walked to Belvedere’s.  Belvedere’s is located on the lower level of a hotel.  They have bright orange umbrellas and shades and appeared to be very festive.  Jon and I started out with a Bloody Cesear.  They were very yummy.  Jon ordered a burger,  mom the meatloaf dinner, and I ordered Fish and Chips.  We enjoyed our meal over looking the harbor and listened to some wonderful music.  We walked back to our Condo after dinner unpacked and turned in for the evening.
