Victoria British Columbia


a little windy

Believe it or not, this is miniature diorama from the Miniature World Mueseum.

Mr. Hoffmeister had a big King Salmon on until a 300 pound seal came up and ate it. All that was left to real in was a head.

Fishing in the Straights of Juan de Fuca. Limit in Halibut and a couple of King Salmon.

Mr Hofmiester brings in a nice Halibut

Gourmet dinner at the Fairmont Empress Victoria. The chefs are making chocolate ice cream with liquid nitrogen.

Victoria's Fairmont Empress

This year's Chairman's Cabinet meeting was in Victoria British Columbia. We stayed at the Fairmont Empress Hotel. It was built in 1908 and has plenty of beautiful Victorian British Charm. I went fishing with Jeff Feurstein and Brad Hofmeister. We caught a lot of fish and were never more than 20 minutes away from the hotel. We ate lots of wonderful food. We visited the Royal Museum of British Colombia which is on par with the Smithsonian. We had a fun time at the Miniature World Museum. Check out the next post for our trip to Butchart Gardens.
