Looking for some "day trip" ideas? Here's one: take the ferry from Fulford Harbour, on Salt Spring Island, to Swartz Bay (the Victoria ferry terminal), which is about 10 minutes from Sidney by the Sea. Lots of book stores & art galleries to check out in Sidney itself, plus places to lunch or to have coffee/snacks or even to have dinner, if you stay over that long. Don't forget the vineyards on the Saanich Peninsula (tours & tastings), plus Butterfly World and the extraordinary Butchart's Gardens! If it's a rainy day, you might want to drive right into Victoria to the incredible B.C. Museum (an Imax , and also enjoy afternoon tea at the Fairmont Empress Hotel, right across the street. Lots of great shopping along Government Street, and don't overlook Munro's Books, a gem of a bookstore! So many great places to eat out, too (Niche, Lure, Cafe Brio among some choices!), and, if you plan to drive back to Sidney for dinner, before catching the ferry back to Fulford on Salt Spring, then there's always Haro's, in the Pier Hotel (good food/superb oceanview). More places to go/things to see? Call Li for "Li's List", and get some more specifics. Always interested in "your" picks, too.
