Victoria’s Inner Harbour On a Sunny Day

Victoria's Inner HarbourOne of the really great things about Victoria is the Inner Harbour. I’ve lived in Victoria for over 30 years and I still get a kick out of watching the activity in, and around the harbour.

Yesterday my wife and I spent some time watching the little Harbour Ferries as they shuttled passengers back and forth around the harbour. They are the cutest little ferryboats you’ve ever seen, and they’re a great way to get around to the various stopping off points around the harbour.

Then we walked around the harbour to the Blue Crab Restaurant in the Coast Harbourside Hotel. We’ve been there several times in the past and I’ve never yet had a bad experience there. The food selection is fabulous, the service is excellent and the views are out of this world.

After lunch we strolled over to Fisherman’s Wharf. What a great little spot that is! Many tourists don’t know about this "hidden treasure" where you can buy fish, fresh from the ocean directly from the fishermen who brought them in. Or you can sip on a cappuccino, or cool off with a giant ice cream cone (we did) and there’s the world famous Barb’s Fish and Chips, where you can, as they say "Dine Afloat, Or Dine Ashore".

Victoria is definitely a seaside city, a great place to live, and a wonderful place to visit.
