A car is the best way to get around
A car is the best way to get around, but we are on a bus route - And our house is right by the E&N bike and walk path, that connects to the Galloping Goose bike trail in Victoria, Langford and Sooke and the Lochside bike trail in Saanich that goes all the way to the BC Ferry terminal at Swartz Bay
出发前预订
Whale watching and Butchart Gardens
You'll definitely need to book before you go if you're planning on going whale watching. If you're heading up to Butchart Gardens, check out their website at www.butchartgardens.com to find out what their hours and ticket rates are (they very from season to season). Also if you're heading out to the wineries, their hours also vary from season to season as well.
不要错过

携带物品
Bring a rain jacket and sunscreen and a camera.
We do live in the most temperate climate in Canada - but, our weather can be a little unpredictable at times. Remember that it's always a little cooler by the water, but the sun can reflect off it - wear a hat, bring sunglasses and sunscreen. And that rain jacket can cut down on windchill as well as protect you from a sudden squall. Summers are generally warm and dry with a light breeze off the Pacific. Winters can get a little bit moist - we do live in a temperate rain forest after all. A result of which is that we Islanders generally dress a little more casually and for the weather.
实用短语
We speak English, but we do have a couple of slang terms -
Out here isolated on the left coast, we do have our own slang terms, some of which derive from the old Chinook jargon trade language of the Pacific Northwest. Here are a few examples of words still in use - "Saltchuck" - the ocean "Skookum" - big or large "Tyee" - boss or leader, also a Chinook or King salmon weighing over 30 pounds "Potlatch" - a ceremony among local First Nations tribes involving an exchange of food and many gifts
