Postcards from Victoria, Vancouver Island

Victoria, Vancouver Island

Dear readers, you are always so tolerant of my sometimes wordy ramblings that I decided to give you all a bit of a break.  I had a great many pictures of this lovely region that I couldn’t fit in to my previous post on the city of Victoria, Vancouver Island, so I’ve decided to try to hold off on the blathering and just share some of these images with you.  I’m hopeless at sending postcards, so I’m happy for my family and friends to feel free to think of these images as a substitute.  Sadly, the weather was a little more overcast than I would have liked, but I think you will still get an idea of some of my highlights in this engaging city.

Victoria, Vancouver Island

This was part of my lovely view – the stunning Japanese Garden at the Inn at Laurel Point.

Victoria, Vancouver IslandAnd beyond that, the view of Fisherman’s Wharf.

Houseboat, Victoria, Vancouver IslandThis quirky houseboat caught my eye – because of it’s name and the modest efforts at urban agriculture in the flower boxes.

Houseboats, Victoria, Vancouver IslandThis colourful yellow houseboat comes with it’s own streamlined transport.

Victoria, Vancouver IslandI simply cannot begin to imagine what these dashing young things were doing on the lawns in front of the Legislative buildings – or indeed why they had a harp with them.

Seals, Victoria, Vancouver IslandThese two chaps were very interested in what we were up to – although the one on the left spent his entire time upside down!

Seals, Victoria, Vancouver IslandThis sweet thing was a little coy & stayed under water.

Crabs, Victoria, Vancouver IslandThis is what they were really after!

Sunset, Victoria, Vancouver IslandMore views from my room – a striking, big Canada sky sunset ….

Sunset, Victoria, Vancouver Island….that seemed reluctant to fade away.

What lovely images. Do people really live on those houseboats? There’s a few here in Mosman but I think there’s a recent law disallowing any more house boats. Not sure I’d want to live on one unless I could learn to walk on water. xx
