After riding one of the fastest passenger vessels in the Western Hemisphere, I finally made it to Victoria, BC. The capital of British Columbia, Victoria has a vibrant flare. Inner Harbour welcomes most of the tourists that come via plane or ferry. Without making too many plans, we decided to walk the town and see what Victoria had to offer.
With having plans on heading to the Butchart Gardens, we walked the town. Fortunately, we packed light and were able to be mobile without checking our bags in the hotel. From flowers to markets to beautiful constructed buildings, I enjoyed taking as many photos as possible to capture this clean and friendly capital.

My favorite part of this photography filled weekend was taking night pictures of the British Columbia Legislature Building and Fairmont Empress Hotel. Victoria was a great change of pace from my recent adventures.
