The Sunken Gardens
>Lake and fountains. I believe at Christmas time, the gardens are magical and beautifully illuminated, all through the gardens as well as these fountains. Hopefully there will be something about it on their web site.
Towards the exit of the Japanese gardens, (no pictures unfortunately), one encounters an unexpected look-out point, a hole carved out of the cedar trees, exposing this awesome view. ..............and stepping through a clearing there is an even better viewpoint of this little harbour.
and on the way back home, are awesome views of the coastal mountains on the mainland. As this is a high road along a mountain pass called the Malahat Drive, there are several look-out points where one can stop and take in the magnificent scenery.
