10-3-19, Thursday- Victoria

Morning showers then mostly sunny

We spent the day at the BC Museum and visiting with friends. Highlights at the museum were the IMAX theater movies The Great Bear Rainforest and Apollo 11. We also saw the Maya exhibit as well as revisited the Natural and Human history wings.

In between movies we had lunch at Murchies and coffee at the museum’s Sequoia cafe. The cafe is on the side of the museum that has a nice outdoor natural plant garden and some historic buildings. There is also totem pole park including a tribal lodge house; it looks like they are restoring the poles one by one.

Our friends Blaine and Barbara picked us up at the marina and took us to the Oak Bay Beach Hotel for dinner. The building has been relatively recently restored and is very elegant beautiful wood paneling throughout. The dining room has a beautiful view of the bay.

The Empress Hotel- our view every morning from the Causeway marina

Old mooring rings- art and history co-exist everywhere in Victoria
