After a relaxed day in charming Victoria we set off for Butchart gardens – 200 acres of flowers – roses, heliotrope, snowballs, fushia – delicious, delightful. Weather has been perfect – sunny but cool. A drive to Nainaimo took us to the ferry and tonight we sleep in Horseshoe Bay, leaving early for Vancouver in the morning. Tall, ancient trees, air fragrant with sea and pIne and flowers, blue skies, mysterious mountains behind veils of cloud.
Discovered Emily Carr in Victoria at the Victoria art Gallery. Excellent discovery – we both loved her work JJ
