Killing Time till the Ferry Home

This little snack cart is set up next to the Royal BC Museum on Belleville Street.

Another totem pole, above the Inner Harbour Causeway.

There was a small pro-marijuana rally on the corner of Government & Belleville.

And by small I mean three guys.

Brian keeps begging asking me to quit taking this same picture of the Empress but I can't help myself.

After my stomach issues and nap, I was awakened by the sound of the MV Coho's very familiar horn as it came into the Harbour.  I got up and went out on the little balcony and found this guy hanging out below my window.

I had also heard the sound of the sirens on the Johnson Street Bridge, signaling it's need to raise for tall water craft.  Now you know why I was afraid I'd be out there midspan when this happened.

And there's the Coho, loading up vehicles for the return trip to Port Angeles.

I felt much better and I had time to take a quick walk over to the Gatsby Mansion and the other historic mansions that surround it.

As mentioned previously, the Gatsby Mansion is haunted.

Well I hope you enjoyed my epic tour of Victoria as much as I enjoyed showing you around.  It took one month to the day to post (nearly) all my photos.  I will be back.  Most definitely, I will be back.
