I am celebrating Memorial Day for all you south of the border by posting a picture taken in one of my favorite cities; Portland. While it doesn't really show Portland proper, it does capture the spirit of that city I think. It's a unique urban environment that still feels very green. - 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!
