Beautiful shot of this replica of one of the most significant ships from BC and Canada's westcoast colonial history.
A decade ago, the SS Beaver ran very popular three-hour dinner cruises in the inner harbour and along the south coast between Trial Island and right into Esquimault harbour.
It's great to see the interest in restoring it to prominence as part of Victoria's heritage.

Beautiful photograph. Your light was perfect. I would buy the Beaver except I already have one just like it.
