While we've been looking at last year's photos Victoria has been having a cold snap - witness the fountain on the grounds of the Legislative Assembly Buildings. Fern and I drove around in the nicely heated vehicle last week to look at this and some of the other places we frequent in the summer.
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!
