I can't wait to go to Victoria this weekend. We will leave on Friday right after school. And I also can't wait to go snowboarding. Something I've never done but I really really want to try it before spring break, owing to the huge snowfall of the past 3 days. It nearly stopped snowing AT ALL.

Check in was at 3pm. We arrived at 10:30am and thought we just dump our bags and look around before our 2pm whale watching tour.
