Victoria, BC, Canada - 2nd August 2008

By: AbbyB

We made it to Victoria just in time for dinner.

On the menu there were interesting facts about the building we were in.

Across the street was this native longhouse.

I noticed some information on James Douglas, the first governor of both the British Columbian and Vancouver Island colonies, before they joined Canada.

Next, we came upon an old schoolhouse.

And then Helmcken House, the oldest standing house in Victoria.  John Helmcken was a doctor.

Next is the Royal Museum of British Columbia.  We are going there tomorrow.

This is the bell that stands outside of the museum.  As you can see, it was a gift from The Netherlands.

Also outside the museum was this area where you could pose with famous British Columbians.  It's part of BC's 150th birthday celebrations.  Can you see me?
