The three young men performing here on the Inner Harbour Causeway are students at the Victoria Conservatory of Music and are a subset of a larger band called "Travel Light". I enjoyed an hour of their jazzy repertoire on Saturday though rain was threatening the whole time. The video below will give you some idea of their cool, relaxed sound.
We're still getting lots of rain these days but whenever the sun peeks through there are more performers enlivening the Inner Harbour Causeway with their music. Above are Caleb and Autumn, father and daughter, pouring out high energy pop classics on Friday afternoon last week.
Benjamin has had to fly solo for the last month as I have been doing some traveling this month. These sea lions were spotted as the little boat I was aboard was making it's way north from Tofino to Hot Springs Cove in Maquinna Marine Provincial Park. It was, according to the captain a mild day on the water and the swells were about 1 meter but I tell you, when that little boat went down and then up again, my stomach didn't like it very much. It was worth it though, so incredibly beautiful. Tofino is a small town but has a thriving tourist trade as people come to surf, go whale watching, camp and fish. It's one of those places that's so special I am flummoxed to describe it in a few sentences. - Fern
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
