We went international again this year with a Tour stop in Victoria, British Columbia, for the Victoria's Chapter of the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's 2nd annual Great Strides walk. We got rained on during the walk but things dried out as we got closer the the finish line, so we look a little damp in some of the photos, like the team shot in front of Hatley Castle at left. The Kinsmen and Kinettes served up hamburgers and hot dogs for the crowd and Island Farms provided some yummy smoothies as well as Daisy the Cow. They were still counting money at the end of the day, but they were up to $23,000!

We took advantage of the long weekend to do a little shopping, sightseeing and get cultured at the museum, so this page gives you our Victoria experience for the weekend.
