VICTORIA, British Columbia, . . . and SMOKED SALMON Appetizer



SUN.  Port Angeles to VICTORIA:   Ferry:  1.75 hours:  

There’s a lot to do with kids in Victoria.

Beacon Hill Park is beautiful.

with irresistible waddling ducks everywhere!

We went twice to the Playground.




and we all enjoyed the Beacon Hill Children’s Farm:

Making new acquaintances:



"Yeah, I see that. . ."

  "but how about that?"


and that!


and this?




Moving on . . .  



Kepler really wanted to ride this thing but another boy wasn’t getting off.  So Kepler pulled a Tom Sawyer.  With one eye on the kid, he kept spinning the orange discs on the slide like this was the best fun on the planet.  Bingo! 

 
Hungry?  Tired?  Well, some of us . . . so sidewalk café right downtown.


                                         Kepler LOVES trips.
