I had planned on combining our stops in Victoria and Seattle into one post but it felt a little long so I’m going to break them up but I promise once this is all over I have some house progress to share.
If you missed out, you can go back and read about our stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway. Our last stop before returning to Seattle was Victoria, British Columbia which is obviously not in Alaska but since it was still part of our Alaskan cruise, I decided to stick with the blog title.
I really enjoyed our stop in Victoria, but it was way too short and it was in the evening so we didn’t feel like we had a lot of daylight time to explore the way we wanted. We didn’t go to any of the gardens although we heard they’re amazing.
We mostly just walked around the waterfront and wandered through the shops.
We grabbed dinner at a place called the Local.
Oh man, this place. The food was really good and the atmosphere was pretty cool. We sat out on the patio which meant we got in some serious people watching.
We decided to order a few different things to share: crab artichoke dip, prawn pizza, and calamari. The pizza was insane! I was a little nervous about seafood on a pizza but it was probably the best thing we had off the boat. No pictures because the food looked too good to take the time.
I’d love to go back to Victoria and spend a little more time discovering the city.
We left Victoria around midnight and arrived in Seattle early the next morning.
Anyway, tomorrow I’ll share the details of our Seattle trip and hopefully by Tuesday I’ll have a full bathroom reveal to show off! Here’s your treat for making it to the end (although if you follow me on instagram @jmens6 then you’ve already seen this).
