          So close to downtown, you're basically on downtown. Self contained rooms and friendly desk service. Free coffee tea and ice, plus TV lounge, books and laundry just off the lobby. You are right next door to the Museum of British Columbia, Beacon Hill Park, the Legislative building and the Harbour front. It's a couple hundred metres to the bus station that connects you to one of the ferries. Location is amazing for the price. Fully equipped kitchen means we saved a lot on food if we chose not to eat out. 24 hour supermarket 10 walk away.

It was a fairly reasonable price wise but we have no U.S. Visas (ESTAs) and whilst we could get them online to print off etc the timetable wasn't going to fit in with our plans this week. Maybe next time we come across we will do so. Heading back to the harbour, we had booked through a company called The Prince of Whales to go on their boat to look for whales on the 12.15 ...

          The following day, we walked into downtown Victoria to check-out the city and harbour front. It was clear to see why they call it 'The Garden City' with manicured lawns, gardens and flowers everywhere. ...

          Our Rocky Mountaineer journey began with a 6.30am pickup from Georgian Court Hotel. Short bus ride to the station where we were jovially greeted by Brandi and Jasmine our hosts on the train for the next two days. It is still early in the season for the Rocky Mountaineer trips and we find ourself in a carriage with only 16 guests. Luxury !!!!! Gracie and I spread from one side of the train to the other over eight very comfortable ...

          We did round one bend to find the Rocky Mountaineer train coming the opposite way around the adjacent track... unfortunately Doug was driving and I just didn't get to the camera quickly enough ;-)

          However we made the mistake ...
