Filtered Victoria

On last weekend’s spontaneous trip to Victoria I forgot to pack the camera. Luckily, the 21st century leaves us with options.

A snapshot of BC’s capital from the viewfinder on my cell phone (with the help of Instagram… not that such a lovely place even needs it!) will have to do as a recap for this trip. Super easy to get to from Vancouver, Victoria is a nice little plae to spend a few days; it’s a little like England with tea and gardens and a little like beach destinations back home littered with postcard and tee shirt shops. This place is growing on me every time we go.

    I stopped in Victoria a few years ago for a couple of nights. Had a nice feel to it.

  2. For sure Hayley. It’s very quaint, like, in an English way, and yet is so Canadian at the same time. It’s certainly a good place to visit for a bit. Were you headed somewhere in BC or was the stopover a surprise?
