We found a pretty cheap motel near to Sidney. It's name is â€śMotel 66â€ť and it just costs 85 CAD per night for a two bed room (plus taxes). The rooms are clean and ok so far.
Today, the Sun is shining and and we will go hike in Sooke. Sooke is situated down in the south, pretty close to Victoria. There is a 10 Km Coast Trail, which we planned to hike. We only made around the half, but this trail was one of the most fantastic hike trail I have ever seen. The trail follows more or less exactly the coast line and is quite challenging. We needed more than 4 hours for 5km coastline (we started at the Becher Bay parking lot and followed the Coast Trail to Cabin Point) and around 4km Interior Trail (from Cabin Point up to Babbington Hill (230m over sea level) and from there back down to the parking lot in Becher Bay).
I really can highly recommend to try this Coast Trail, it's a fantastic experience, great Trail(s) and some super views. There is a map available about this trip at the visitor center, which you will find a few kilometers after you landed by the ferry. The name of the map is â€śEast Sooke, Regional Parkâ€ť.
In the evening we went down to Victoria and ate our dinner in a Chinese Restaurant in Chinatown (the oldest Chinatown in Canada). It was my second best meal in Canada. Victoria is very nice city, specially the harbor and the Chinatown area, as far as we saw.
