Sidney by the Sea, Victoria

My husband and I spent Thursday and part of Friday visiting Sidney-by-the-Sea in Victoria on the Vancouver Islands of Canada. It was beautiful. I wish we could have stayed longer. 
My husband is a pilot and every now and then I’ll try and go out with him on one of his overnights. This one in Victoria is too good to miss. 
The hotel was beautiful. 
We stayed at the Sidney Pier Hotel and Spa. It’s right next to the water and down the street are great shops and restaurants. 
One of the best parts of this hotel is the hotel dog Dave. He lives at the hotel and you can take him on walks whenever you want. 
My husband and I are huge dog lovers so this was really fun for us. 
We also took a walk along the pier. The view was breathtaking. 
For dinner that night we ate Fish and Chips at Fish on 5th. 
After that we spent some time at the local Farmers Market. 
There were tons of people shopping, playing music in the street and visiting with each other. 
This was my first time to Canada and I hope it’s not my last. We had such a great time. The people were so lovely and the landscape is incredible!

    Glad to see that you had a good time – and decent weather! A friend of mine just got back from 2 weeks in the Vancouver Island area and they had mostly rain and drizzle. Maybe on your next trip you will make it to the Ontario area 🙂

    By the way, thanks for stopping my blog!

    Glad you enjoyed your first visit to Canada. Vancouver Island is just about my favourite place in Canada. (I live in near Toronto,Ontario.) I stayed at the Sidney Pier Hotel and Spa last June and loved my short visit in the Victoria area.

    I'm so glad you enjoyed our part of paradise on Vancouver Isle! No, we don't always get rain, hee hee. We have mild temperatures & a relaxed 'island' lifestyle that enhances creativity.
    I love your site & often get great ideas for projects. Great job!

    We just returned from a trip to Vancouver and Seattle, and did some sea kayaking off San Juan Island, which is across the water from Vancouver Island. That whole part of the country is just gorgeous. I would love to go back in the future and get over to Victoria. Did you hear about go to Butchard (sp?) Gardens while there? I've heard it's amazing, but we didn't have time to fit it in during our trip.

    Looks beautiful! I stayed at a hotel in San Antonio that had a dog that lived there. It was so cool. I'm a huge dog person so I took him on walks and gave him some lovin everyday.
