We are now planning to go up to Victoria for a long weekend over the 4th of July. Since Ethan and I both have Friday off, we are going to head out Thursday after work for a 4 day, 3 night stay. Eric and Jill are coming with us. Since Eric works with Ethan, they can never take a vacation together, but this way they both can go somewhere at the same time.
I am looking into some rental houses and condos right in the inner harbour area. Should be a fun little trip! I figure most Americans will be busy HERE, so it shouldn't be too touristy a season.
