Rain today a bit of a shock after last week's long string of sunny days. Oh well, it'll bring mushroom season along that much quicker.

Jam Cafe

This is one of Victoria's favorite breakfast/lunch places and on a visit there this weekend we were seriously in heaven with the delicious fare. Located on Herald Street, just off of Government, there is often a line-up but it's worth the wait. - Fern

Johnson Street Bridge Update

Here's what the bottom of Esquimalt Road looks like now. The new blacktop (that curvy bit in roughly the centre of the photo) looks like it will serve as the on-ramp to the old blue bridge. There used to be a bit of a hill there that is now a gentle rise. The new bridge is being constructed out of sight to the left of the old bridge and when completed this new bit of road will just be straightened out to lead onto the new bridge. It looks good and definitely clears up a lot of the bad sight-lines that have been traditional at that intersection where it curves around under the railroad overpass. As for the new bridge itself - it appears that due to some engineering problem it has been postponed once again for another six months - now scheduled for completion a few years from now.

From Songhees Point 4

Here's a last photo from Songhees Point earlier this week. I can't resist the rain-washed air and late afternoon sun combination. Here we are looking directly across the harbour to the Royal BC Museum, the Legislative Assembly Buildings and the Robert Bateman Centre. The little Harbour Taxi in the foreground will continue to operate until mid-October and then will close down until next May.
