Oak Bay blossoms out in summer. This is the Penny Farthing, a pub/eatery on Oak Bay Avenue. I haven't eaten there but if the food is as delicious looking as the flowery sidewalk seating it must be very good indeed.
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!
