We caught the 7AM ferry to Victoria Island. After a 90 minute ride, we drove straight to The Butchart Gardens. Now I'm not one for flowers, but it was gorgeous. Again, getting there early allowed us to have the run of the place and take pictures without others in them. Here am I next to a huge tree! Next we headed to Victoria and checked out the Empress Hotel and Parliament. Then it was back to the ferry so we could change for dinner at West. We enjoyed an amazing meal and topped it off with cake to celebrate Mini Cooper!
