Well, here it is mid-July and we have definitely been having some beachy weather lately so I thought I would take a look at some of the beaches in the Greater Victoria area. The south coast of this island is sculpted by a series of bays almost as if someone had been taken great bites out of the coastline. Today's pictures feature Cordova Bay, along the coast northeast of Victoria.
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!
