While wandering around Bastion Square on the weekend I chanced upon this performance of a play about early Victoria called "A Queer Trial". I was on my way to a supper engagement so I only had a few minutes to spare but it looked like a very energetic performance and an enthusiastic audience. It reminded me that I should check on Bastion Square regularly as there are a lot special events like this over the spring and summer months.
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!
