Sol Duc to Victoria

The Sol Duc Hot Springs resort is near the Sol Duc River.
Here the chinoock and coho salmon ascend the river to spawn.
We hiked through old growth forest and watched the Sol Duc waterfall.
I wondered how any fish would ever be able to leap these falls.
It was time to pack the car and head to Port Angeles. Our time in Olympic National forest was too short. I made plans to return.
We had reservations on the Coho Ferry.
After an hour and half ferry ride we arrived in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

We were on our way to Birds of a Feather, a bed and breakfast.
Here we nested for the next seven days.

The clock tower is beautiful. I see that it was 3:11 at the time of photo, and the sky is so blue.

How wonderful!

Dear Sprite,
My husband suggested I pop-up out of my seat at a stop light and snap the Clock Tower photo. We had the top down so I did. It did turn out to be my favorite photo I took of the buildings in Victoria. I too liked that it told our arrival time too.
Love and blessings,
Sherry of the Swans

Perfect nest, Sherry. I'm thinking I'd love a nest like this. You did it right. Perfect.

Dear Mary,
British Columbia is very beautiful. The weather is nice and in Victoria there are many home gardens. The city is just lovely. Lots of flowers everywhere.
