阿拉斯加郵輪之旅  Alaska Cruise – 9

第六天  維多利亞漁人碼頭
Day 6 – Fisherman’s Wharf, Victoria BC

維多利亞是我們回西雅圖下船前停靠最後的港口。我們只有從下午7:30 – 11時30分四個小時的時間,然而天氣非常好,我們決定步行去漁人碼頭看看。

如在其網站上所述, “漁人碼頭在維多利亞內港, 有浮宅和水上餐館, 商業船隻聚集的海上景點。”   這些浮宅和水上餐館色彩繽紛,裝飾精美, 非常獨特, 而餐廳沒有過分的商業。水上家園是如此可愛,有人他們是”異想天開” (whimsical)。

從郵輪碼頭到漁人碼頭是一個從容的步行路程。我們後來再走遠一點,然後回轉船上吃飯。郵輪碼頭前面有一禮品店, 就在那裡有免費無線上網 (wifi),所以我們很多同行站在的附近看電郵和Whatsapp,一部分在店內最後一輪購物衝刺

Victoria was our last port call on our way back to Seattle to disembark. We only had a time span from 7:30pm to 11:30pm, the weather was beautiful, we decided to walk to the Fisherman’s Wharf.

As described on their website, “Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria’s Inner Harbour is a unique marine destination with float homes and commercial vessels.”  These floating homes are very colorful and nicely decorated while the restaurants are not overwhelmingly commercialized. The floating homes are so colorful and cute that some folks called them whimsical.

It was an easy walk from the cruise terminal to Fisherman’s Wharf. We walked a little further and turned back to the ship for dinner. There is a gift shop right in front of the terminal where there was wifi available for free, so a lot of our fellow passengers stood near the shop checking email and WhatsApp while the others were buzzing in the shop doing their final round of shopping.

Folks bought fishes from the nearby seafood store to feed the seals. ↓ When it was the lady’s turn, she held out the fish like the gentleman did, and out of nowhere, here came a seagull diving down with lightning speed and grabbed the fish from the lady hand before the seal emerged. As you can see, I was 1/10 second slower in pressing the shutter.

Victoria Fisherman’s Wharf

My dear friends, this is the last post of the series of Alaska Cruise. Like I said, I have run out of time and steam. As a matter of fact, I have been busy the last two months, taking care of the photos taken (not yet finished, those taken in Vancouver are still waiting), wrapping up the works in the house and getting ready for my next trip. The planning of the trip to Japan for sakura is being put on ice. Stay tuned.
