Bastion Square

As soon as the first hint of spring hits Victoria the Bastion Square restaurants and coffee bars blossom with umbrellas. This square has lots of interesting places to eat and drink, many craft stalls selling local artisans' works, the Maritime Museum and good live music. This photo was taken from the lower, Wharf Street side of the square. Directly behind me when I took it was this splendid Buick Special Convertible (1958?), and the Inner Harbour, as viewed by the sidewalk cafe patrons above.

Two beautiful pictures together, a road side cafe and a classic, don't see much of either here in Pakistan, thanks for sharing.

Nice shot, Ben. Really captures the variety of architectural styles.

The 1958 GM cars, including this Buick, were studies in excess!

In a related vein, "Louis" posted this about the Packard Caribbean.

"Louis" is buried deeper than his cowbell in a work project for the next several weeks. He will stop and visit, but may not stay long enough to 'sign the guest registry'.
