Victoria, British Columbia, Part Two

Part two of my April vacation photos. Click on any picture to see a larger version. On Saturday, we all drove north to Sooke, for Emma's softball tournament. Before it started, we took a walk at Wiffin Spit Point.  The Olympic Mountains can be seen across  the bay. 




Lots of giant driftwood (below).










Then, back to town to watch Emma as catcher and getting a hit.






After the game, we drove to the Point No Point Resort for an excellent lunch.







With this cozy room of the Teahouse Restaurant, 


and this scenic view, it would be fun to stay in one of the cabins.


We took a hike down to the ocean after dinner...




through a rain forest...










down to the beach...








to look back up at the restaurant on the bluff.


We continued on...






past remnants of battlements...


over a bright bridge...




to the point.












One last look before heading back (below).


Later that day, I went with Tom to walk Willie. We hiked up along the streets to an old observatory in their neighborhood...





for a spectacular view at dusk...




and a plaque to point out the sights.

Ha ha - Lisa, you're right...I think the name was based on the "discoverer's" disappointment when he saw it.
