I'm home! Victoria is beautiful. I can't tell you how many times I stooped (Ouch! The damp weather made my bones ache a bit!) over and picked up VERY RED maple leaves off of the sidewalks.
Abigail's Hotel is amazing! I don't know how Bill's travel agent finds the deals she does! We felt completely pampered!
Can you believe the bathroom? It's five times the size of our little cubby we call a master bath.
Clam chowder. YUM.
Ferry boats docking. Joy!

My sweet "treater" Bill. He's the BEST traveling companion.
Our little home for three days
Isn't the interior lovely?
The gift shop. This is where I bought Betty's dress.
This church looks so "Northwest" to me. Pretty!
And then in the museum . . . YIKES! A life size woolly mammoth!
King of the crabs
I can't describe the First Nation exhibit. The totems are breathtaking.
This is a an old kitchen display in the museum and I found that it didn't fascinate me as much as old kitchens used to. I'm not sure why. Maybe I'm old enough to have viewed my fill of old kitchens. Hmmmmm.
The blanket of leaves in the parks. Delicious.
I'd like the red teapot, please. When one travels with no luggage (just a backpack) one cannot purchase teapots. This one does not need any more teapots.
The markets were so clean!
I like this little Chinatown feature. It's so clean and shiny.
We found a well stocked yarn store and if I hadn't been so overheated (too many layers of clothes) I may have purchased a hank or two and tried to stuff it into my backpack.
Now it feels good to be home.
Don't you LOVE November? It's the thankful month and the turkey month. It's the stay-at-home month.
