...But just about a good as a beach. I always enjoy seeing this giant watering can in Beacon Hill Park. It squirts water from spouts here and there all over it and responds to a number of buttons set at kid height. In the summer there's always a half dozen families with small children running around and squealing as the jets spray on them. The buttons make it squirt but not from any predictable place.
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!
