Having said goodbye to my friends in Gig Harbor I have taken a brief side trip into Canada having caught the ferry across the Juan de Fuca Strait to Victoria, the capital of British Columbia which is at the southern tip of Vancouver Island.
I've been very impressed by the realism with which boat drills are carried out in this part of the world. Last week, on the ferry from Bremerton to Seattle, a calm voice ...
... The day was pretty cloudy & foggy so after much deliberation we decided not to go Whale Watching but to save that for New Zealand where the weather would no doubt be better. Having reviewed our advice email from John Girt we decided to take a walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Now I'm thinking that my balance must be off because of my stupid ear as I stumbled 5 times on the not so long walk! No actual falls though so I have maintained an upright policy so far on this ...
... loved Papa and came running to the fence each time he appeared. WE also got to see some donkeys, alpacas, sheep with 4 horns, an aviary, bunnies, guinea pigs, ducks and tons of loud peacocks! But the highlight was petting the goats. There were babies galore, along with their mommies, all who loved to be petted and brushed. Some of the older babies, I guess we can call them teenagers would butt heads and jump all over the place….so funny to watch. Mia gravitated towards ...
... for us, told them the information and asked us to run to the gate. We were off. As we were running, we realized that the flight was to Edmonton with a connection to Vancouver. This would get us there about 1 hour later then we originally expected -- not too bad.
Well, we made it to the gate. The gate agent was trying to print off boarding pass from Edmonton and was quickly typing in the computer. All that typing and ...
Last morning meeting today. We were joined by Pat Kealey from Harley Davidson and Malcolm Hunter, President of Harley Davidson. Set out from Vancouver to take the ferry to Victoria where we were met by about 30 bikers. Great to have such a warm welcome. Toured around and went to Nanaimo and then regrouped at the Harley dealership to parade into Esquimalt . About 75 bikes rode onto the base where we had our final "dog and pony show". This one was a little different ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Abbeymoore Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn Victoria
My husband and I were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary and the Abbeymoore was perfect. The room (suite actually) was just fabulous with lots of light and space, a beautiful view of the lighthouse, a scrumptuous bed and lovely linens. The full insuite kitchen facilites would have been useful if we were to have stayed longer than our 2 nights but as it was, the generous (and delicious) breakfasts, (plus the always available pop, coffee, etc) made it unnecessary to eat anything until an early dinner! The location is great as the expansive Government House gardens are just across the street, the neighbourhood is lovely, we found tennis courts not far away and the village of Oak Bay is also handy. Ann and Ian are delighful hosts. I took a look at some of the other rooms and they too are lovely, spacious, beautifully furnished and I highly recommend the Abbeymoore!
Loved Abbeymoore, would go back in a heart beat!
Loved every minute of our stay at Abbeymoore, the only problem was that it wasn't long enough. Our hosts, Ann and Ian, were wonderful and the service and ammenities exceded our expectations.
We would defineately return to Abbeymoore and recommend it to or friends.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Abbeymore! Ian and Anne go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home. I challenge any other B&B to make as delicious and as unique a breakfast as Ian and Anne. With the needs of the guest in mind, they have internet access, games, books, afternoon snacks, drinks and the most current newspapers available at your disposal. No matter how early you wish to depart, they will accommodate you with a meal that will last you the whole day. On our very last day, Ian gave us a ride to the bus station even when I insisted that I call a taxi. Many other B&Bs in Victoria will pride themselves on being in downtown Victoria (on the harbor) and they will charge 1.5 to 3 times as much as The Abbeymore. The Abbeymore is a short ten-minute walk from downtown and one that takes you through the beautiful Rockland Area of Victoria. The Government House gardens are directly across the street from The Abbeymore and they make for a quiet morning or evening walk. You cannot beat the price or the experience. Most especially, I challenge you to find hosts that are as friendly and as warm as Ian and Anne.
Abbeymoore an amazing and wonderful getaway!
Abbeymoore is an incredible getaway. My wife and I were able to honeymoon there and were made to feel completely at home. Anne and Ian were excellent hosts and offered a wealth of information on things to do and see, as well as offering us coupons and discount cards for various attractions. The location of the house is perfect for anyone who wants to get away from the busy city atmosphere but still be close enough to see the sights. I would and have recommended this B&B to all of my friends and aquintances. Oh yeah, and you'll definitely love the breakfasts prepared by Ian and Anne. Simply amazing!
What a Delightful Surprise
Thank you to Anne & Ian for a lovely stay. We weren't sure what to expect as neither Dave nor myself had stayed at a B & B in Canada before. The Abbeymore was beautiful & charming. Much to our surprise & delight we were given a choice of rooms. All 5 bedrooms were bright, cheerful & quaint but we had to go for the Master Bedroom. The room was large sunny & opened on to a large deck with views of the ocean. Very romantic.
The breakfasts were delicious & filling. Anne & Ian had just returned from New Orleans so we were treated with some mouth-watering recipes as well as stories about the history of the house.
The loacation was perfect. The house is just 20 minutes away from the harbour & downtown Victoria so you can walk off those extra calories in no time.
Just returned from a one night stay at this wonderful B&B in the heart of Victoria. Ian & Anne were a delight (as was Frankie the dog). It is local to all things Victoria. The history of the home itself was very interesting, being decorated with early 1900s authenticity. The 'lilac' room was very cozy; its adjoining powder room complete with clawfoot tub and fresh flowers.
The hosts at Abbeymoore are relatively new to the Bed and Breakfast scene so it seemed the best thing to do was provide some constructive criticism by pointing out aspects that could be improved. However, from the moment you walk into this 1912 manor you are made to feel completely at ease and like another member of the household. The rooms are spacious and tastefully appointed...ours featured a claw-foot tub and shower combination. The best part was the bed...VERY comfortable mattress and pillows. Nothing was taken for granted...towels were high quality, parking was quite adequate, newspapers were readily available, etc. Breakfast was a multiple course affair featuring a mouthwatering omelette, a huge croissant, juice, coffee, potatoes and a great pineapple and yogurt concoction. Ian and Anne (our hosts) were very attentive to any of our needs...including helping us find some local restaurants they recommended. Our stay was thoroughly enjoyable, and we look forward to revisiting Abbeymoore Manor.
Terrific hosts, great bed
We spent March 2004 in the penthouse suite. Great view, great bed, great hosts. Suitable for two physically fit adults (lots of stairs!) Only drawback for an extended stay: no onsite laundry facilities.
Excellent PR over the tele
Super helpful over the phone, negotiating a stay. Over the top helpful.
My husband and I recently enjoyed a 3 day stay at Abbeymoore Manor just prior to embarking on an Alaskan cruise. The new owners, Ian and Anne are natural B&B hosts even though they've only been at it a month! They recommended restaurants that were not typically tourist oriented and ensured that the tourist activities we chose were with the best operators.
