The rooms were clean, the beds very comfy with soft pillows. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. There were tea and coffee making facilities but the cups were cardboard. There were only 3 coffees sachets and three creamer sachets (no milk) between the two of us. When I went to get a couple more the young man reluctantly gave me two more of each saying that he really should charge me. The room was stuffy and hot and we were told that we couldn't adjust the heat so we ran the air conditioner all night; very uneconomical!

... the hotel in time for a little rest before dinner, and then went for a little walk around town after dinner. I hadn't previously had a chance to explore the town itself, so it was good to do that, at least a little. I really liked what I saw of Victoria, and would love to go back and see more of the island sometime. But for now, it was back onto the ferry early-ish on Tuesday morning, back to the mainland and heading on up to ...

... striped garter snake sunning itself in the middle of a bed of flowers, and probably attracting more attention than it wanted to! A wooded forest with green jewel like moss led into this area, and dancing fountains, an undercover carousel and outdoor picnic area, concert stage and fireworks set to go that evening over a lake were other delights. Banks of sunflowers, dahlias, black eyed Susan's and a host of other flowers I'm sorry to say I cannot name (but look at the ...
... so called it a night. Can't beat mother nature eh! Tuesday 21.05.13: We packed up early this morning and hit the road to Victoria. It's only about 160kms south but we always do a bit of sightseeing on the way and end up driving all over the place so an early start is good. We checked out Chemainus which is a city famous for its murals. Nearly all of the buildings in the town have murals on them painted by (some famous) artists. It's a very cool little town but I ...
