Gonzales Beach

One of Victoria's nicest little beaches is Gonzales Beach, just below the hill capped by the Gonzales Observatory. Here's what it looked like last Sunday - surprisingly uncrowded despite the warm weather. The huge boulder pictured above is what is known as an "erratic" meaning that it is unlike the other nearby rocks. This erratic and others along Victoria's coastline were carried here by glaciers during the last ice age and dropped on the shore as the ice melted.

On the left, one Gonzales Beach resident uses driftwood to communicate a nice yogic reminder.

From the other pics you've shown in this area, I'd like it there very much.
