Not certain if true.

I may be stretching the terms

doors and doorways this week.

Still in Canada’s

Vancouver Island.

Still in the Butchart Gardens,

this first image is a doorway leads us to

the Japanese Garden.

 

The gateway between old and new

Chemainus (presumably).

 

Finally, a fair dinkum doorway

taken from our horse and carriage

ride around Victoria.

The Ross Fountain in the Butchart Gardens.

It reminded me of a mini version of

the Dubai Mall Fountain

Victoria Harbour….

…just on…

 

…night fall.

 

I didn’t think of it at the time, however…

….I really wish I had taken a ride

on the H2O Taxi…just for fun.

During our travels of the past twelve months

we were fortunate to visit several gorgeous gardens.

Butchart Gardens, Schönbrunn Palace, Versailles Palace

and finally Hamilton Gardens in New Zealand.

The Gardens which I really wanted to visit were

The Butchart Gardens on Canada’s Vancouver Island.

We were so pleased that we arrived a day or two early.

This gave us time to look around Victoria

prior to our tour commencing.

Because of this we spent much more time exploring

Butchart the our tour had allocated.

We were just finishing a walk through the Sunken Gardens

when were were scheduled to leave.

Public transport took us back to Victoria

and we both would recommend this to anyone visiting

Victoria and Butchart Gardens.
