We've left the island for the weekend and headed to Vancouver. I always feel like such a small town girl here, craning my neck to look up at the tall, tall buildings. It was lovely to see some blue sky too, we complain about the weather in Victoria but I think Vancouver had even more. Bring on the sunshine! - Fern
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!
