We took the ferry from San Juan Island to Sidney on Vancouver island and then drove to Victoria. We stayed in a lovely hotel right on the wharf and spent the next two days walking everywhere.

We had high tea at The Empress, a name well suited to this majestic hotel. We visited the parliament buildings and spent most of one day in the museum. It was a lovely transition period after the sadness of leaving San Juan Island.
