Happy Valentine's Day to you all! We celebrated our Valentine's Day last weekend in Victoria, BC Canada. We took the 8am ferry across the Strait of Juan de Fuca Saturday morning, and despite heavy rain in the forecast it was only light rain and clouds. We arrived to find that the main streets in front of the provincial Parliament buildings...as Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia...and in front of the Fairmont Empress Hotel were closed. The 2011 Canadian National Street Hockey Championship was in high gear with 60 teams from across Canada competing for a trophy, bragging rights and a $20,000 cheque. It was quite fun to watch.
We walked to the Victoria Tea Festival and had a great few hours checking out the booths for tea suppliers, tea gadget makers, historical tea tours, tea art and various tea related booths while sipping samples of different teas and various nibbles of items for sale related to taking tea. It was a fun time. This was the 5th annual and we always enjoy going to the Victoria Tea Festival. Here are a few photos of the festival, and the rest of the photos will be part of my other blog, Antiques And Teacups blog, and the Victoria Tea Festival slide show on the sidebar of that blog. We will also discuss some of the businesses we met there.
