Finally I'm at the end of our BC trip pics. We ended our trip in Victoria and on the way there from Tofino stopped at Cathedral Grove. Cathedral Grove is a rare surviving stand of ancient Douglas fir and western red cedar. The oldest and most majestic trees in Cathedral Grove are about 800 years in age, and measure 250 feet hight and 29 feet around. We took our picture in front of the oldest tree in the grove. They are a spectacular sight.

We stayed just a street in from the harbour and did a walking tour of downtown Victoria. We saw the Parliament buildings and the majestic Empress Hotel. And while we were there a classic boat show was going on. The boats dated from the late 1800's early 1900's and were gorgeous. I loved the ones that were varnished to a high sheen and the Chris Craft's were beautiful.

From here we took the ferry back to Vancouver and caught our plane home! It was a great vacation!
