From Victoria to Qualicum Beach, BC

There are two viewpoints on the Malahat Highway as you go north on Vancouver Island.  This is the view from the first one.

This totem pole was at the first view point and the next photo is a close-up of the plaque at the bottom of it.

The second viewpoint showcased great views of Saanich Inlet.  Across Saanich Inlet is more of Vancouver Island including Sidney, where our ferry had docked.  Vancouver Island fishhooks at the south end so we had to go south from Sidney to go north on the island.
On a clear day you can see clear across to Mt. Baker and the Olympic Mountains in Washington.  This was a foggy day.

We stopped in Duncan, a small town known for their totem poles.  We followed yellow footprints painted on the sidewalks to walk by a number of them.

We arrived at Qualicum Beach and settled in at our friend's home.  They took us for a lovely walk along the Strait of Georgia, part of the inland passage that cruise boats use to get to Alaska.  There are many bald eagles in this area and we happened to catch this one up in a very tall tree.

We watched the sun go down on a lovely day.
