West Coast, by Land and Sea - Day 8

Victoria BC

Good morning and Welcome to Canada.
We enjoyed breakfast on the ship and then left the ship to explore a bit.

Right at the port you can grab a tour, a pedicab, a taxi etc.
We grabbed a taxi and took it to the main part of town, by the government buildings. [Editor's note: There was a "shuttle" that they advertised on the ship that went to the main part of town and back for $13/person round trip. It seemed to me that since it was only 2 km, $52 for the four of us seemed like a bit much (I'm not sure if the $52 was Canadian or US.) Anyway, based on my research, I figured that a taxi would be much better. And it was: $10 (CAD) each way for all 4 of us, plus a tip.]

A few pics from the Harbor area. 

We walked around the harbor area for a little while, then took a horse drawn carriage ride.
The carriage ride was lovely. Our guide was great - she had fun and interesting info about the area, but also let us have time to just relax and enjoy the sights.

Getting to know Samson. 

Beacon Hill Park. 

Enjoying a relaxing ride. 
After our tour we caught a taxi back to the ship. We had been waiting to see Avengers: Infinity War on the ship and this afternoon was the showing that fit best into our schedule. After a relaxed lunch on board, we had plenty of time to get to the film. It was an opened caption showing, which was super for our young man... he prefers all TV and movies to be captioned.

This took us to dinner. Our last night with our serving team an our table mates. We had another great meal and said our goodbyes. Our young lady went to the clubs for some fun and farewells and I had some time to pack.
We got everything in order pretty easily and hubby was able to attend the late night comedy show.

We made the decision to do Express walk off the next morning... so we didn't put our bags out to be taken off the ship.  We will let you know how that goes :)
