RE: Vancouver Island....Victoria

Two days? With that amount of time, you won't even see all of Victoria's sights, let alone the Island, which is bigger than some US states. You'll probably be only be able to see some of the city, with maybe s short trip to see some of the outlying sights.

Beacon Hill Park- Petting zoo, water park, playgrouunds, small zip lines, otters (maybe) beachcombing, tidal pools, Cricket match ! Fisherman's Wharf- houseboats, seals, otters, fish & chips. Ice cream. Inner Harbour- buskers, magicians, jugglers, acrobats. Native arts. Government Street- Souvenirs, Ice Cream (Chocolat Favoris!!! ) Shopping Mall. Chinatown- Restaurants, secret alleyways! Around Inner Harbour- Royal BC Museum- (a must see) Mammoth, beach, forest dioramas . Victorian town reproduction Galleon. etc IMAX. Miniature World- battle scenes over the ages, doll houses etc. Bug Zoo- never been in! Around town- Two castles, one where they filmed the X Men series and Deadpool? Butchart Gardens- Carousel. Flowers, live music, fireworks Saturdays July & Aug) Beyond Victoria Lotsa stuff!!

RE: Quebec City Attractions

I've been there a couple of times and really like it there. Our son in law is from there. A few random observations: Having lived in English Canada since 1973, I had often been told of the negative reaction there to English speakers. So I tested this out by speaking in my naturally very bad French or pretending to have no French. Made no difference! Everyone was very helpful and patient, whether we were in the touristy 'Old City' or across the river in Levis, where less English was spoken. In the Old City, I was amazed to see an old cannonball stuck in the roots of a tree. I can't remember if this was from the war with the French or when Canada was invaded, unsuccessfully I may add, from the south. The other thing I noticed was the large number of places that sold, or maybe rented, Mediaeval costumes. Apparently, this is due to the large numbers of festivals that they hold there. Probably for the same reason, there were many places that sold reproduction mediaeval weapons and also toy 'knights' ! It was fascinating to see.

RE: Fishing and sightseeing trip in Ontario

and found out nothing was open on Mondays and drove a hundred miles to the next small city and absolutely nothing open there or anything to do in a day. Priceless! Looks like you came on a long weekend, when in Ontario, almost everything closes down! :)
