Yamaha BWS Scooter - and took it on a test run out to Sooke a few days ago. Sooke is one of what are called the "Western Communities", a series of small communities strung out along the coast of the Vancouver Island west of Victoria. They are linked by a highway that swerves and swoops along the coast above the ocean. Sooke is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of Victoria. This photo was taken from "downtown" Sooke overlooking Sooke Harbour. Although many of the residents commute each day to Victoria the community has its own rich and diverse social and cultural life.
