Misty beaches make opaque pictures.
There is a large surfing community in this area. The normal response is, "Well, they wear wet suits." So? It still seems very cold for surfing to me, but what do I know?
The little sea birds don't mind, of course.
We left our cozy cottage and headed back to Victoria. This is the famous Empress Hotel. You need deep pockets to stay here but it's fun to wander around inside and see how the other half lives.
The Parliament Building is an interesting structure, both inside and out. Built in 1893 it remains in use today.
I'd seen pictures of these phone booths before but never in real life. Who knows how long it will be there now that everyone has cell phones.
We took the ferry back to Seattle and spent the next day exploring again. The Space Needle is probably the most recognized structure there but what we really enjoyed was the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame and the Sci Fi museum that goes along with it.
We returned home almost a month ago. I had so much to catch up with at work that there has been very little time for blogging, but for now our little excursion has ended until the next great adventure.
There are bound to be more Scenic Sundays in our future.
