Victoria...last port

Victoria British Columbia was our last port on our Alaska trip.  It is the capital of BC.

The flowers in Victoria are wonderful!
 On our walk around the city we came to Fisherman Wharf and found this 'Water Town'. 
Floating houses! How cool would that be to live in one of thoses??!! 
Life is just to short. I would love to live in a place like this.
 Just get out the kayak to go down your front street!!
How about this one...roof top patio !!

Last to time to board the ship... and the following morning .....
We arrived in Seattle ...
And said farewell to our time aboard..

  6. Flora it's been many, many years since I've seen Victoria but the one thing that stands out vividly in my mind are the flowers and cleanliness of the city. It's so beautiful there that I didn't want to leave when I visited.

    I LOVE the concept of a floating house, no more packing or unpacking, just float on down the river! I wonder how taxes work on a home which is launched... hmmm there couldn't be property taxes, or could there be?
