Oh Canada Eh - Part 9 - More from Victoria

Thursday 9th to Friday 10th May - Victoria.

After fish and chips at Fisherman's Wharf, we took a nice stroll around the harbour of Victoria. I manged to spot and photograph this Black Oystercatcher - a great addition to the holiday list. There were also plenty of Glaucous-winged Gulls (I think!)

More Gull photos !!!
On Friday 10th we departed Victoria and Vancouver Island for our final destination - Downtown Vancouver. Waiting for the ferry to depart I snapped these Shags/Cormorants.

The last evening of our holiday was spent dining on a sunset cruise around the Vancouver coastline. The desserts were delicious - all three of them !!! Prior to boarding, this Great Blue Heron showed brilliantly on the pontoon by our cruiser. With Camo Cam tucked safely in the hotel room, Angela lent me her camera so I could get this shot.

Great Blue Heron - this was much tamer than our Greys.
