Dave and I drove out to see the Butchart Gardens, the sheer size and design of different garden themes was impressive. In particular, the sunken garden was formerly a quarry and over 100 years the trees and plants have grown into a truly inspiring space, I just wish I had the money, man power and water that was available to Mrs Butchart! We enjoyed walking around Victoria city in the afternoon and waterfront, an attractive city that has retained much of its British influence. The next day was driving to the Pacific Rim on Highway 4 through beautiful mountains and pass so many huge lakes, fishing is big around here. Arrived at Ucluelet, a small town that is surrounded by the ocean and national park, so pretty. A few hours spent walking through rainforests to a couple beaches encircled with tree logs. Dinner at the Eagles nest pub, eating fish of course, Salmon, Halibut and cod seem to be the main types around here.
