The journey over to Victoria is quite picturesque. We took the ferry over and soaked up the views of the mountains in the distance. It rained a little on the way over, but it didn’t keep us from being out on the deck. The calm of the water, the rugged rocky coastline, the deep green treeline, and the fresh cool breeze. Truly serene.
Hatley Castle is a short drive from Victoria, BC and is on the campus of Royal Roads University. I must admit one of our main reasons for making this stop on our west coast visit was that I used to watch the TV show Smallville. Hatley Castle was Lex Luthor’s mansion in the TV show and being a huge fan of the show I had to stop by and see it first hand.

2. Peak to Peak (Whistler)
3. Victoria, Vancouver Island
4. The Raptors Birds of Prey attraction in Duncan
5. Whale & Bear watching in Ucluelet on the West Coast of Vancouver Island

More details and pictures to follow about the specific areas we visited.
All I have to say is …. WOW!!!! It truly is beautiful in British Columbia.
