Butchart Gardens ( north of Victoria).

Brentwood Bay offers a boat service over to the Butchart gardens.  This is a wonderful way to get into the gardens without all the hassle of driving and parking… About a 20 minute boat ride over is the way to go.  We saw much of the bay, including thousands (not kidding…) of moon Jelly fish.   We pulled into the secluded cove and walked into the back entrance to the park… through the Japanese gardens.  It was Saturday,  so it was crowded,  but the gardens are incredible,  it is one of my favorite places.

On Saturday’s they have a fireworks show in the gardens choreographed with the music.  This is no normal show and it lasts over 30 minutes.  It was a great way to end the day…   Afterwards the hordes of people all went the same direction to go to the parking lot… but we just headed back through the Japanese gardens and back to the boat waiting to take us back to the resort….  Much better way to travel than to fight traffic..  Pictures of the gardens will be posted to the website soon.
