Quilt With Us

Here we are in lovely downtown Victoria! Our hotel was a wonderful surprise, you never know until you get there. I booked a killer deal from Expedia in a boutique hotel and it's a fabulous room with a huge patio deck on the 10th floor. We can see the Empress, the Parliment Bldg, the harbor and the sound - and there is SUN!!!!! I almost forgot what it looked like! I took pictures for you, but forgot my camera cord - they'll have to wait.

So yesterday was the 4 1/2 drive from Portland to Port Angeles, to catch the ferry. Then we strolled downtown, had gelato, got some Canadian funds, crashed for a little nap and had a light, very yummy dinner at the hotel. This morning we splurged on room service for breakfast so we could get ready slowly and enjoy the sunrise and this gorgeous deck. Next stop - all day at Butchart Gardens. My mom and Carol have never been, and I know it's late in the season, but should still be nice. It'll be fun seeing them enjoy the gardens, and of course I always love to visit. They both have disabilities, so we'll be taking it slow - not a problem since I have a bum knee and love taking it slow.

Gotta go get ready to smell the flowers!

Slow is best to enjoy Butchart--so much to see--I think that it's lovely year around, with all of the seasonal changes. The roses are great, but Portland has lots of those!
What a view for your boutique hotel!!--and sun--can't get any better than that!!

Karen, WELCOME TO CANADA . I had heard on the weather forecast that it was going
to rain in BC so I was worried you weren't going to see the gardens. I am in Ontario and the cooler weather has arrived. I am so glad your hotel arrangements are grand. The patio sounds gorgeous to sit out for meals or just to sunbathe. Enjoy
your visit and am looking forward to pictures.
