Part Three of our Day Trip to Victoria,
Sight-seeing Victoria Attractions

Sight-seeing Victoria 1

Besides sight-seeing Victoria attractions like the inner harbour and the Fairmont Empress Hotel there are many sights like horse drawn carriage tours and peddle carts that give Victoria its charm.

We started driving no where in particular to see what we could see and ended up driving past a majestic looking church which I just had to have a picture of.

Sight-seeing Victoria 2

To get this picture I ended up standing right in the middle of the road on the yellow line.

A friendly local stopped to tell us that the bricks used to build the church were brought over from England brick by brick.

From there we kept driving through the older neighborhoods just outside of the downtown and saw many beautifully restored homes that had been turned into bed and breakfasts and guest houses.

Then somehow we ended up driving along a scenic route that took us along Dallas Road and Beach Drive back to Victoria proper.

Still wanting to see more we headed for Beacon Hill Park. Beacon Hill Park is alongside the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Sight-seeing Victoria 3

You can do a walk along the beach or along the waterfront walkway and walk out onto a pier.

We came to a part of the park that is a popular with kite flyers and there were a few out there catching a breeze off the water.

By this time we were getting hungry and finding something to eat started to become a priority but not before we stopped at a multi-family garage sale across from the park and rummaged through the sale items though we didn't see anything that we felt like hauling back to Vancouver.
