I caught the C-Tran bus at 6:00am for downtown Vancouver and transferred to another bus at 6:20 for Marshall Center. We departed Marshall Center in Vancouver, Washington about 7:30AM. We made a stop in route. We caught the Black Ball Ferry out of Port Angeles for Victoria, B. C. The ferry ride to Victoria was about 1 1/2 hours. I had a chicken wrap for lunch. When we reached Victoria we rode a little harbor boat in two shift. I was going with the second shift. I had accidently spilled about a 1/4 of a small bottled water in my lap before we got off the shuttle bus so it gave me time to dry out in the sun. Afterwards we went to our hotel to check in. I was given Room 434 at the far end of the corridor. It was a corner suite with a great view out of the bedroom window of Parliament in the distance. We boarded the bus to return to downtown. Carol and I walked several blocks south on Government Street. We had dinner at the Sticky Wicket. I had Fish 'n Chips and a glass of white wine. Back at the hotel I watched "America's Got Talent" on television. I had a great night's sleep.
I had a Nature Valley Bar and Apple Juice for breakfast that I got from home. We had a self guided tour of the Craigdarrock Castle. I much prefer Pittock Mansion in the Portland West Hill. After the Castle we went to Buchart Gardens. I immediately went to The Dining Room where I had a marvelous Afternoon Tea. I did the Virtual Cache. And then wandered around the gardens until time to leave. We drove to downtown harbor. Carol and I did several Virtual Caches including the one at Christ Church. We stopped at the food carts near the Royal BC Museum where Carol got a Wild Salmon burger. We shared a free large cup of lentil soup. Carol and I saw the IMAX 3D film of "Beauty and the Beast". We caught the 30 bus back to the hotel.
I watched the Comey hearing on CNN until 9:30am. We headed for the Royal BC Museum and a self guided tour. I got my hand stamped and immediately headed for the cafe for a lemon poppyseed muffin and cup of Earl Grey tea. I wandered around the exhibits until time to leave. We sat in the bus from 1:00 to 3:30 waiting to board the ferry. Argh! I bought some gorp from the snack machine and drank bottled Apple Juice that I bought from home. The ferry returned us to Port Angeles where we had dinner at Kokopili Grill. I had a marvelous slice of cheesecake. We made a stop once again partway back to Vancouver. We didn't get home until midnight!
Next trip I need to check out Venus Sophia. And see the rest of the exhibits at the Royal BC Museum. And have lunch at the Legislature. And so much more.
