Strait of Juan de Fuca from Victoria B.C....

On our recent vacation, from our hotel in Victoria B.C. we were a short walk northeast to the inner harbor, (seen here), and a wee bit longer walk southwest to the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Vancouver Island and Washington State, U.S.A. 
While there are plenty of things to do and see in Victoria's beautiful downtown, I also love to get away from the city and to walk along the stunning shoreline of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. (In the first photo you can see the Olympic mountains in Washington State seen across the Strait.)
 This piece of driftwood came home with me and is now part of my autumn mantel decor

The shoreline along the strait is rough and rocky. For a stroll there are walking paths on the rise above the shore. A walk on the shore itself includes scrambling over large boulders and driftwood logs. In spite of that, I still couldn't resist exploring along the water's edge. There are stairs from the walking path down to the shoreline.

Victoria is a beautiful city located in a beautiful location. No wonder I love it so much!

  1. Beautiful! It's been quite a few years since we've been to Victoria.

  2. Wow, such a beautiful place to walk. Wish I lived close to coast instead of a 10 hr drive. But, I admit Oklahoma does have it's own beauty. Love seeing all of your beautiful pictures of an area I hope to see soon.

  3. Beautiful! When I was young we had dear friends who pastored a church in Victoria. I was twelve years old on the last, very memorable trip to visit them there. They took us to places many don't see - private castles and sights unseen. And the shores along the Strait. I love your photos. Maybe it's time for my sweetheart and I should make a trip up there soon!

  4. The shoreline is beautiful, but how fun to find a piece of art from nature/driftwood.

  5. Gorgeous! It has been forever since i have been up that way. Would love to go again. Have a great week.

  6. Beautiful. Given it's location, I am surprised to see so many large dead trees … do they float over from another part of the coast with more trees? Joining you from Sharon's Souvenirs.

  7. Wonderful photos of a delightful place, Elizabeth.
