Whale Watching and Butchart Gardens

We spent a day at both the gardens and Whale watching.  We arrived at the gardens with perfect timing – before any of the main hordes of tourists so mostly had the gardens to ourselves.  It was another beautiful day and there were so many gorgeous flowers and gardens.  We then went back to Victoria, and after lunch went to the Whale watching place and got all rugged up in boiler suits for out on the water.  We went in a high speed zodiac which went about 60 km/h most of the time except when we were edging up to Whales and Porpoises and Seals.  We saw 3 Minky Whales and probably 50 Porpoises, and lots of Seals as well.  We also saw our first Bald Eagle!  Our photos are here.
