We watched ice carving by one of the chefs......
Hung out on the Lido deck
and spent time at "our" table playing Mexican train dominoes and cards.Our final stop on the trip was Victoria BC.
Picture taken near the fabulous Empress Fairmont Hotel, built in 1908 .
This unique evergreen tree is called "Arbustus", I have never seen the like anywhere.
One of several shrub sculptures in this city.
A lively violinist dressed as Darth Vadar entertained the crowds,
And we found a store with some funky merchandise, shoes for your wine bottles.........
a cartoon golf cart.........
and unusual chess sets
First stop on our mini "pub crawl", nice people working, very helpful advice for our limited time in the area.
Then onto the "Canoe" micro brewery, friendly folk there too.
And excellent food including, Shepherd's Pie, Bangers and Mash, Irish Stew, Lamb burger, and even Oyster Poor Boys. The dessert you see me holding was shared among us, it was superb!
Fudgey brownie, Bailey's Ice Cream and whisky sauce yum, yum, yum, OMG!
A fitting end to a wonderful adventure which we plan to repeat in four years after JW finishes his residency.
