We had some sunshine today so I loaded up the camera bag and headed for the shoreline. It has been some time since I visited Clover Point. Well, it was nice and bright but there was an icy breeze blowing - cold but at least we seem to have escaped the snow the weatherman was promising. Clover point is reputed to be the spot where James Douglas first set foot in his quest to find a location for Fort Victoria. It's just off Dallas Road a little east of Beacon Hill. Here we are looking westward from very tip of the point.
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!
