Temperate Rain forest

What better way to see the Temperate Rain Forest then on horse back?  Vacations are for everyone and that includes our horse girl.
Billed as a true West Coast experience, we did a hilly trek through some local parks, up and down a mountainside. This shared space welcomed dirt bikes, hikers, runners, bird watchers, dog walkers, girl scout troops and horse riders. It was a well utilized space.
It was full of cool, mossy, ferny, old growth woods.

After our trail ride.  We had reservations for tea at the elegant Empress, Fortunately, we allowed extra time to shower and change!

More horsey adventure in the evening. Some in our group preferred this easier mode of horse transportation where we jostled along in a horse drawn wagon and were told stories of Victoria and got to get acquainted with  the area as we enjoyed the flowers, the park with peacocks, and old Victorian homes.

I am so happy to see that even the horsey one had something to delight her. How fun to later take the tour around town in the carriage.
