In the afternoon I did some shopping with my brother and father. Sze decided to head in the other direction for a little exploring of downtown Victoria on her own.
Hi! Sze here. Today, I ran off on my own to discover downtown Victoria. I started with a little picnic on the lawn of the Legislative building near the harbor. A great view of the magnificent building with its green roofs behind me, and the yachts and boats along the water in the harbour. After a quick lunch, I decided to go for a walk along the harbour where there were street performers and peddlers selling wares
After a brief walk down Government St and some window shopping and a Canadian soccer shirt later, I decided to go check out the Royal BC Museum which was within walking distance of all the touristy shops on Government St. and the harbour.They had a great temporary exhibit called TIBET which was just awesome. I managed to squeeze in a brief exploration of the natural history section of the museum and saw a magnificent wooly mammoth display. The Royal BC museum is a must-see if you like museums. You can get a two-fer pack for museum entrance and an IMAX movie, and even save a few loonies if you have a student ID.
Time went by really fast and by the time I was done at the Tibet exhibit, it was almost time to meet up with the other folks for dinner plans. I didn't get to see the First Peoples Gallery or an IMAX movie due to time constraints but we managed to do both later in our trip.
