Brentwood Bay / Buchart Gardens

On a windy day we decided to leave Sidney Spit and head for more protected Buchart and Brentwood Bays. We hit Buchart Gardens and were also able to catch an evening show performed by the Victoria Symphony Orchestra. Buchart Bay has buoys provided by the gardens for visitors, 24 hour maximum stay.
