Let’s Play Tourist…

Yesterday I spent a wonderful day with my middle daughter, Maggie!  We had arranged to meet in front of the Empress Hotel at 10am…so of course I was early.  It was a great chance to take a few pictures while I waited… so I thought I’d share some of those photos of Victoria and the Inner Harbour!!  It is such a beautiful city!


Victoria is well known for it’s flowers……and even though it’s Fall, Victoria didn’t disappoint!!   GORGEOUS!!


Maggie’s BF is in Victoria for a Conference so they got to stay in the Empress for the weekend and play tourist! 


Not too shabby!


Across the street and to the left are the Parliament Buildings…

This is the Empress from across the street…


And there is Maggie waiting for me…to begin our day of FUN!


And FUN we had!!  Hope you had a FUN Saturday too! 

Maybe I will get some quilting done today??  Fingers crossed!

Have a Sunny Sunday and Happy Quilting!!
